Thank You Piper

November 9, 2009

It appears as though today is just one of those days…

After having a very busy weekend filled with lots of yard work fun, I decided to get organized for bed about a half hour early last night. I proceeded with my usual bedtime routine of brushing my teeth, washing my face, feeding the cats, shutting my curtains, and turning on my alarm. Well… so I thought.
I had an amazing sleep with no tossing and turning, or having to wake up to empty my damn bladder in the middle of the night. Piper started bugging me a bit in the early hours of the morning – something he’s taken to since he had his operation and I decided to let him sleep with me – but it was a usual morning. Until Piper really started bugging me! Usually he just lays on my shoulder, or my chest, or back – depending how I am laying, all while purring his brains out in attempt to wake me up so that I will go and feed him. This morning though, he suddenly started going nuts playing on my chest! Pulling at my blankets and everything! I got mad at him for a second for waking me like that until I uncovered my clock to find the time showing 6:45!!!!! My alarm usually goes off at 6:15! Apparantly, although I thought I set it, I didn’t.

Needless to say, my morning was pretty rushed as I tried to shower, get dressed, make and eat breakfast, feed the cats and clean their litter all in less than an hr! Thankfully Piper knew that I had to get up and did his darndest to make sure I did!
Isn’t it amazing how animals just know things? Piper knew that I needed to get up at that exact time to be able to make it to work! I thanked him all morning at home and will thank him publicly now — thank you Piper!!!
***…for those readers interested, Piper has recovered 100% from his surgery and acts younger now than he has in a few years! So glad my little guy is back to normal now! 🙂

    Aw, cats are so smart. Mine does the same thing; he KNOWS when I'm supposed to be getting up. I'm so happy to hear that your cat is all better!

    Dogs, too! Mine pays very close attention to human body language. He looks for very subtle signs to figure out what's about to happen. Maybe he can smell my thoughts, who knows?I like your blog.-
