It turns out Juno's patience can wear out.

I have a metal sculpture in the hall right outside my bedroom, which acts like chimes when disturbed. I was waiting for the day when Juno figured that out. It was this morning. I forgot to set an alarm and she woke me up with chimes (actually, at my weekend wake-up time, since I've been waking up at that time for the last four days).

It was terrifically helpful this time. I just hope she uses her new-found power judiciously 😛

As I have mentioned numerous times, Gracie's spot is on my pillow. Last night I was awoken when she decided to wrap each paw around my head and over each eye. Now that was a weird feeling to experience. Never gotten a head hug from a cat before. :lol:

This morning, Boone walked across my pillow and stepped on my hair... twice!! Walked across then turned around and walked back the other way, stepping on my hair each time. Ouch!!

My cats wake me up in different ways:

Bourbon swats me on the face.
Graham breathes on my face.
Barley just stares. And stares.

every morning.
Every 5am. Sometimes earlier.

So as previously posted, I generally keep Juno out of my bedroom, leading to her new use of the chime sculpture outside my door to wake me up. But sometimes she slips through the door and I let her stay until she acts up (nearly inevitable). But last night, she calmed down after the initial excitement of being in my room and fell asleep at my feet.

Next thing I know, it's morning and I hear the chimes. Instead of waking me up directly (walking on me, swatting my face, etc.), she walked quietly out of my bedroom and rang the chime sculpture outside my door. 💞

Teddy comes into my room for cuddles every morning. Once I make eye contact he walks over and boops me and plops down for lovins. Then he sleeps until late morning or noon like a teenager. Finny is always downstairs on his tree napping so he doesn't wake me up, but once he sees me he usually wants a second breakfast and acts like he's starving and wilting away lol
