This morning I used one of my all-time favorite wake up tools: paw on nose.
First I meowed. Meowed. Meowed. No dice.
Then, I put my paw on her cheek. Pressed. Pressed harder. Nada.
Finally, I just went for it and bonked her on the nose with my paw once. Then, pushed her nose with my paw to make sure she understood I was not messing around.
Eyes open. She giggled. She sighed. And HOORAY FOR BREAKFAST!
