Wise words...

I eat breakfast at 6am pretty much every day. No, Kate does not get up that early, she feeds me and goes back to bed. 6am is as early as I can make Kate feed me. If I hassle her earlier, I get confined to the bedroom. If I keep hassling her by meowing and scratching at things, I get sprayed with water. I've got a pretty good internal clock, and usually wake Kate up 10 minutes either side of 6am. If she drags her feet, I get very vocal.

Part of the 6am breakfast ritual involves Kate tearing off yesterday's cat-of-the-day calendar page to reveal the day's new page, featuring either a new cat picture or a new wise saying. Given our morning routine, Kate laughed out loud when she read yesterday's saying:

Too true, too true. I thought I'd feature it on my blog today because lots of cats have been doing the proverbs meme. I didn't write this one, but I thought it was worth sharing.

Have a great weekend, everycat!

That's a good one! We sure do not have snooze buttons as the maid and the butler know!
Pablo - we figure you must be up and going right now and maybe you can go and encourage Zeus from the Zeus Excuse who has to write for another 8 hours in the Blogathon and is pretty alone as all the cats in the US are sleeping right now...???

hey Pabs, you sure gotta great mom, my daddy would never do that for me!! If i did it would outside time for sure (not nice when the grass is white with frost still)
How about you leave her to sleep, and eat at nite like me??


Pablo said...

Ax man, I eat morning and night!

The Cat Realm said...

Dearest Pablo,
thank you soooo much for supporting Zeus so wonderfully!
We had already asked your fan club here in the US what to do to become members, they haven't gotten back to us yet.
So what do we do?
We certainly are VERY BIG fans of yours!!!!

Lol - that's very true indeed - very wise saying :)

Christine and FAZ said...

Hi Pabs, this proverb is sooooo true.

Yes, please, Christine does appreciate your offer of helping post my full monty picture. We tried and tried on Sunday but just couldn't get it to work. Doh! FAZ

Christine and FAZ said...

Thanks Pabs, thanks Kate for your help with my Monty.


P.S. Re early morning feeding. I used to get Christine up at sunrise to eat (4.30 am in summer). Now she sets a timer feeder, I get up and eat at 4.30 am then go back to bed. Sometimes I hang over it until it opens and once or twice I got bopped on the nose (Christine would love to get a picture of that happening). It works well for both of us though.

Christine and FAZ said...

Hi Pabs me old mucker, yeah - my food timer is really cool. Christine used to get so cross when I insisted she get up to feed me but now we can both relax. You should definitely get one for Kate. You should also have a look at the article I've just published about Catcam. FAZ

Dear Pablo,

I'm so sorry that Monica and I have been negligent in our Fan Club duties. We have just been quite busy as there are a lot of activities and negotiations going on here that we must help out with. I will try to write a post about it tomorrow.

I'm so excited that you won Jeter Harris' Squillion's contest!
