Alarm clock

I have been awakened the very same way, several times, not necessarily in the morning either. Goober, my big male cat, likes to sleep on my hip. If I twitch he falls off, taking everything on the bedside table with him. What a...goober.

Great picture by the way!

Lol, I love that drawing, Caroline. I can so relate. My cat Jinx has an internal clock that tells her precisely when I normally get up. I wish I could say I found it endearing. But at 6:15, she starts meowing - whether it's Saturday, Sunday, holidays or vacation. I do, however, find it amazing.

I love this picture!

I no longer have cats but do recall that they are rather good at finding ways to awake their oversleeping human.

Their stomachs have excellent clocks.

Your post below about the mugs is softening me... I wasn't going to play but now I'm thinking about it...

Currently I'm not expecting to make it to Just Be in October so I was thinking I'd sit it all out... oh dear that sounds like I'd better make myself an Inner Wallflower card...

I just love the picture! And I can relate. Our cat, Hattie, taps one of us on the shoulder and stares at our eyes until we open them. She then talks to us and insists until we abandon the comfort of bed. thank goodness we are morning people!

Such a great illustration!! Our cats are not so subtle about it. Miss Girl is the one who wanders back and forth across our pillows to wake us... but, the bad thing is - she has terrible balance and falls on our faces while wandering!

Have you always been a cat person, or is this a new discovery for you?

I had a cat who would put her claws out ever so slightly and tap my eyelids to wake me up.

Current cats get up and leave when the alarm goes off. Some help they are!

Wow, your cat is AMAZING! Although a little bit of a trickster but I like that in cats. I love the image Caroline, your drawings have so much character and detail. You're so talented! I know I've said that a million times but I can't help it, you really are. I wish I could draw like that.

your illustrations are so wonderful. They seem especially inspiring, having just read on Suzie's blog that it's a relatively new thing for you. It's new to me, too, and there's no way my efforts are anywhere near sharing yet!

I love the way you made yourself 3D in the bed under the covers. :)

Great critter you have there, Caroline. Do you sleep on your back like that? I never could.

I like the deatil of Tarzan's paw. I'll bet he watched each item as it dropped to the floor too.

Super illustration, you look as if you are really have a great nights sleep! I'm sure, judging by the type and number if items falling, that your cat knows exactly what he is doing!

Oooo! I love this illustration, especially the colours! So bright and cheery and so comfy:) And your Tarzan is really something! :D

Hi,
I found you at Plumpie Mousie's blog :))
I love your blog, and have to tell you, my daughter plays the Irish Whistle in a Celtic band (son plays the guitar). They just finished their first CD!
Also, my inlaws lived in Turkey for years, and they loved it. My father in law worked for Bechtel and they still talk with the friends they made there. Also, they lived in Tonga for a long time.

What wonderful drawings you do, I am envious of your talent!
I will add you to my favorites and check back often :))
Slainte~

My cat does that from about 3am to 5am on a regular basis, I have to really work at not having anything on any counters in the entire apartment. But I guess if your cate woke you up, its a good thing, no?

Also, my condolenses to Amazing Swedish Guy - that sounds like quite the upset.

You're really getting good at illustrating your life events, C/PP! Your Tarzan and my Bobby look much alike, but Bobby's internal alarm fluxuates. He asks to go out at random times each night, and sometimes not at all. He'll usually jump on the bed and meow. None of this tossing and throwing of things for him. He's not that creative!

And poor Mattias. I don't want to hear the details, as I'll just get more upset.
