A Typical Morning...

Guido and Au having breakfast
545AM:  T-man sneaks out of bed and Target slithers off my pillow.  The two of them go downstairs where T-man opens the door so Target can have his early morning stroll, and then he puts on coffee.

546AM The smell of fresh coffee wafts upstairs.  Guido slides out of bed and hurries after Target.  Au marches down and demands breakfast from T-man with loud ME-OW-OW-ROOOOWs!

620AM Target jumps into bed.  His fur is all fresh and cool and he's all purry.  We cuddle. T-man leaves for work.

Target on desk duty
625AM I get up and give Au his second breakfast.  Guido comes racing in and eats too. Target has biscuits upstairs because he's not a big breakfast kitty.

630AM I put laundry into the machine, do the dishes, and cuddle Target when he comes down from his biscuit munching session.  Au looks on the scene with disdain.

640AM Treadmilling for me, with a cuddle break for Guido who is now round, purring and smelling of sardines as he finishes his food by running a paw around the bowl.

730AM Collapsing from treadmilling.  Cuddle Target and get fur all over me.  Give Au a treat of ham.  Persuade Guido he needs only a tiny corner of ham.  Invite Target to race me upstairs for the start of the day.

8AM In the office with Target on desk duty.  Guido and Au are downstairs, cleaning whiskers before their morning nap.

Now waiting for 11Am when Au will come into the office, headbutt me in a friendly way and demand first lunch....

Life with cats; I love it.

i am missmobilicious said...

my cat mobee slaps me awake every ten minutes from 6.30am to 7.45 am to have breakfast with him and I have zero explanation of my compliance. I squat half asleep next to his bowl to accompany him munch a couple of biscuits each time. This is my everyday ordeal and Mr. Mobee is happy like that.

I see Target has the difficult desk duty. I know how that goes...

GrammyMouseTails said...

Au sure got used to all the extra meals! sounds like they are all getting along purr-fectly. I hope Target is over his cold so he can give proper attention to his desk duty job! Have a furry good week! I bet you kitties would of loved to watch ( & maybe try to catch what was in my yard this week!)

Old Kitty said...

Marg said...

Goodness that sounds a lot like our house. We have our Mom all trained too. We love getting up early and having three or four breakfast meals. When the outside ones come in, we all get to eat again. Such a deal. Take care.

Blackie Bond said...

Our morning doesn't start until after 9am....LOL!

Dianne said...

I love that they have multiple meals
it's so royal :)
and I love that you accomodate their different needs and personalities so well
you're a wonderful human

Hannah and Lucy said...

Well that's pretty much like it is here breakfast wise - three brekkies each for us - a slice of dry toast for mum!
Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

Ginger Jasper said...

Sounds purrfect to me too..Hugs GJ xx

BeadedTail said...

We don't get up that early but it sounds a lot like ours!

Roy said...

I love the schedule, but with the 6 Mouskateers it is a bit much. So they get bowls of crunchy placed at critical places at each end of the house that are kept full 24/7. Still, it is a bit of fun (and sometimes irritation) to be cajoled and teased into specal/extra meals. Gotta love ..... just gotta.

Clooney said...

Sounds fabulous!

Cat with a Garden said...

That sounds like a great morning routine. Reading it we now know that we have to get more treats out of our mom, she's slacking. Target is taking desk duty super serious, just look at the concentrated look on his face.

Huffle Mawson said...

There's never a dull moment with cats!

Boo-Bah said...

Sounds like a perfectly lovely morning with time for cuddles with the cats.
Thanks for your visit, we have missed all of you.

Life Ramblings said...

sounds like a great routine to me.

~Covert_Operations'78~ said...

What a great morning routine! Except for the treadmilling part. I hate exercise. Except for football, boxing and skateboarding, which don't count as exercise to me. Cuddling with cats is one of the main indicators of quality of life. I cuddle with my cats every morning and night. I know there must be a God up there, because God loves me enough to send me cats to love and to love me in return!

I have been very sad because I'm visiting my namogadinho passed the bridge of the rainbow and is now a star, my star ....
Thank you for your kind words
Good weekend and the ronrons

Jane said...

Hey,sounds like a great day! But don't you furry ones ever thought of changing your routine a bit? Like waking late during weekends?

meowmeowmans said...

That sounds like an absolutely PURRfect day to us! :)

Gattina said...

That's a daily routine I like too !

Kjelle Bus said...

Sounds lika a PURRfect life :)
Have a happy weekend !!!

Brian said...

Hey, I enjoyed your story over at the Star!

Live Out Loud said...

My kitty loves to use the mouse as a pillow - while I'm using it.

(I sure hope she doesn't read this post while I'm not looking. She eats too much already and nowhere near as much as Au and Target and Guido!)

Ah, the joy of having furries around.

Aww, Target's so sweet in warming your desk for you to start work and putting story ideas in the computer.

mizzyN said...

Great life there. I read your star article, i Think you've posted thr story before.

One question, when you read blog posts in other language like Malay, do you use a translator like google translate?

Sharon Wagner said...

What a busy day of cat cuddling. I know the feeling.

Barbara said...

Sounds just about perfect...

Donna Heber said...

What a life! I just adore Target on desk duty ... nothing will happen to your computer now (LOL).

Cat said...

Sounds like a great start of the day to us, but waaay too early for our liking, however, the ham part does sound very, very good. We are not big sardine lovers so we could skip that part. Cuddles? Who can resist cuddles? Not us!! We send lots of them to Au and, of course, Target and Guido!! You guys are great!! Purrs, Lautrec and Tiny (forget the dawgs)

Anya said...

Love your life there
big big cuddle for little Guido from Betsie :))))))
