Cat Alarm Clock: So Cute, So Annoying

by at . Comments

Boo the orange cat has apparently figured out a foolproof way to alleviate boredom and get his human caretakers the heck out of bed in the morning.

Reaching one paw under the bedroom door, he flicks the door stop - which is somehow on the door and not the wall, like every other house in modern civilization, but that's neither here nor there - incessantly to wake everyone up.

Two main takeaways here:

  1. Their alarm clock is cuter than yours at least.
  2. Cats don't have owners. They have staff.


This is so funny to me! One of my cats gives us a similar wake up call every morning between 4-5 a.m. We can't see her so the images are just what we think she is doing..but we can certainly hear her. She tends to jumping kicks off your leg or a wall, so each morning when she's banging on the door like she's the police, we imagine that she's doing round house karate kicks. She's all black so I've been calling her Blackie Chan.


My fiancee and I adopted a cat from the SPCA 2 years ago on a Friday the 13th, whom I decided to name Jynx. The name couldn't fit his personality any better... Jynx (no lie) has the ability to somehow manage to giggle open a locked door. And if he cannot manage that, he will yell out "Hello" and "Momma" until someone picks him up and cuddles with him. Of course, he does this every night at midnight... 2am... 4am... 5am... & finally, 6am, just as we are getting up for work. I love him to death, he's my little cuddle bug. But sometimes - sigh.


That is why I tell people there are cats living in my house. I don't own them lol.
