Little Sneaker

Of late Loki has been awakening me at 12-1 a.m. for food.
You would think that I would be able to ignore the little bugger but he has a very loud cry.
Add to that Lucky taught him all about scratching under the bed.
Last night was no different.
The threat of death did not quieten him.
I stumbled into the kitchen and squinted in the fridge looking for the cat food.
After feeding him my bladder makes itself known so I decide bathroom and back to bed.
I thought that I heard something but no all was quiet.
I was stood at the door hand on the light switch when I looked up.
And saw T coming out of his room.
I screamed.
Loud.
T (comes up to me and puts his arm around me): Mom I even told you I was awake.
Me: I did not hear you. And if you were still awake why the hell did you let Loki cry until I got up and fed him?
T: I’m getting a melatonin and something to eat.
He laughed.
I laughed.
I crawled into bed and fell asleep in no time.
T who knows what time he went to sleep at.
This morning I had to wake him up and send him out the door to meet his dad across the street.
Because construction.

  1. Gravity and movement the curse of bladders everywhere…..fill food and water dishes before bed (for the felines, by sounds of things T has been trained sufficiently to be capable of raiding fridge/larder/biscuit jar all by himself without scratching under the bed or meowling).
