Two surprises Sunday

The Divine Ms. P: Well colour me shocked -- in a good way.

I like the first meal of the day to be served nice and early, which is why I usually start my gentle morning wake up call between 4 and 4:30 a.m. (There's a reason why my humans feel like zombies all the time.)

Yesterday was day three of the Man's four-day holiday weekend. I was feeling generous and allowed him to sleep in a bit.

At 5 a.m. he woke up all on his own, got up and headed straight for the kitchen. At first I didn't bother leaving the bed because I've learned to keep my expectations to a minimum, but a few minutes later when I heard the right kitchen sounds I left my warm, comfy spot on my pillow and seconds later I was eating breakfast.

Mid-afternoon (again without any prompting), the woman got up in the midst of watching "Malice Aforethought" and fed us.

Perhaps my years of patient training are FINALLY starting to pay off!!! Then again, Christmas is over, so maybe it's a Hanukkah miracle. Or, it could be just a weird fluke because of the way the stars and planets were lined up. In any event, it was a good day.


  1. I start my "tuning up" around the same time, and you know what Daddy got up on the first meow and fed me too! Isn't a vacation nice, lets them focus on the things that really matter.

  2. Wow...we oughta take lessons from got those beans right where you want them!

  3. Yes, the holidays are a time for miracles, treats and cuddles!
    I'm glad that you are having a great one!

    ps. mine mombean really likes your menorah. I's a little afraid of candles though. :)

  4. Mom doesn't know how to relax either, but I am working on her. After her huge outburst of energy on Friday, I forced her to sit in the recliner and read most of today. (She did get on the treadmill for 1/2 hour. Now Lucky is in her lap and I have to figure a way to get her out of it so I can climb in it.


  5. Lovely Ms P, we are so happy that all these years of diligently training your humans has at last paid off. This is a most wonderful Holiday Miracle and we sincerely hope that it is repeated on a regular basis.
