The Before Dawn Re-enactment

(4:25 AM. The boys are hovering in the hallway outside the bedroom door.)


I hear someone moving around in the bedroom. Yes...the door's opening. Hi Mom!


Hi boys. I'm not up yet, I'm just going to the bathroom.


Come on Max...quick, get in here before she shuts the door. (They zip into the dark bedroom & up onto the bed. Mom returns to bed, and realizing at least one cat's in the bedroom, leaves the door open so he can get out)


Oh, you're both here. Alright. Georgie, get under here and lay down. (holds covers up) It's not time to get up yet.

Max, will you just find a place and lay still. (Max lays on Mom's shoulder and stretches his front legs out on her face)

(George turns around multiple times to find just the right spot) Get your butt out of my face! (Finally curls up by Mom's chest & purrs loudly)

(Max extends claws into Mom's cheek) Ouch! Max watch your claws! (shifts slightly so claws are on her neck now) Everyone go to sleep.

(Max moves up a little so he can see George's head sticking out from the covers. One paw is in Mom's eye and one is in her hair) Max... CLAWS!!!


Mmmmphh...what time is it?


Quarter to five.

(Max now starts moving, walking up & down the length of Mom. He finally settles by her head with his full 18 lb., grabbing hold of her shoulder through her nightgown and putting his head right above hers, sniffing her hair. He checks on George again to be sure he's still under the covers. Purrs lightly and kneads toes on Mom's face & eyes. Tipper jumps onto bed)

Tipp, lay down. (settles on Mom's feet) Ugh...I can't move. Why can't any of you ever lay by Dad.

(George stretches full out sticking back claws into Mom's hand that's supporting his feet and pokes a whisker up her nose) Georgie... lay still!!


Is that my boy?


Yes. Here...(pushes George over to Dad)...take him!!

Max, alarmed that George has moved, has to find him now and moves to the center of the bed, walking around until he finds the lump of George under the cover. Lays down next to him) Oh, my shoulder...he's so heavy.


What time is it?


Ten after 5.

(Misty now joins everyone on the bed, walking behind Mom's head, stepping on her hair. She proceeds down the center of the bed past the George lump and Max, who hisses at her. Instead of settling down near Tipper, she decides to play and jumps at whatever moves) WILL EVERYBODY JUST LAY STILL!!


What are you hollering about? I'm not doing anything!


It doesn't matter, I have to leave early today anyway. (Gets up & leaves the bedroom. All cats follow. Mom now has the bed to herself but is wide awake and thinks "This would make a good post!")

Mommy {{giggling}} says it reminds her of almost every morning and........nail clipping time!=^Y^=Ty, I'm the good boy!

I don't know that I would have lived thru that had I been so brave as to interrupt the human pet's sleep. I guess, though, when you have four against one, it's way easier to dominate!

Wow our staff misses out on a lot of excitement just having us around.Your Mom and dad might be able to give up the alarm clock if you all keep up the good work.

Hahaha! Isn't that typical how they won't let you sleep LOL

Hmm... Except that there are fewer of us, that doesn't sound unfamiliar. Ours starts with Georgia walking on the Woman (because the Male pushes her off). Then Gemini follows (Georgia never settles) When I see the Woman moving because Georgia is walking on her, I come up and meow in her ear. This is best on Saturday...

We are very impressed by your teamwork. That is an excellent way to start your mom and dad's day. We never let our mommy sleep...uh, I mean oversleep...okay, we hardly ever let her sleep either.

Sheesh, with just me and a good size bed, I never get to mum like that! She sleeps through it if I jump on the bed in the early AM. Only when she finally decides to get up do I get any attention.

Mommy Says: I'm glad I only have one at times like this. Ha ha

Great job crew on getting your beans out of bed. Mom isn't so nice if we are active like that so we lay still until Mom says so. I lay by her back. Cleo lays by her other side and Gizmo lays somewhere by her legs. Sometimes she tugs at the covers to get them loose as we have her all bound up. So we do get back at her some times.

Hi Crew!

I work at Pink Sneakers Productions and we are currently casting for a documentary series, titled "Life Chronicles," on TLC. I was wondering if you and your cats would be interested in participating in a documentary about cat lovers.

We are looking for individuals who have lots of cats in order to document the time and chaos that goes along with taking care of them. I would love it if you could get involved! Each episode in this series aims to document the day-to-day lives of people and their unique experiences with their pets. Our goal is to enlighten our viewers and try to get rid of the stigma that is attached to having a lot of cats. I think you could add a great dynamic to the show. If you are interested in this amazing opportunity please email us at in order to communicate further. I hope to talk to you soon! Thanks!

I do my best to do all of that but it's hard when you're an only cat.

Heh heh, my humans complain enough about me waking them up by standing on their pillows and licking their hair. What would they do if they were fighting off four of me???

Hahahaha, boy you all loves to be in the bed with momma and daddy! We all do the same thing heres, we are all over the momma all the times. Momma wonders why they don't goes to the daddy too.

Well, I took a couple of times to get the names with the photos - But, that was the best post. I can totally relate to some of that.

Hilarious that they all followed Dad!!

Very bookworthy!

How funny! I can see it in my mind and I can honestly say I've been there....but only with two cats! Gotta love em!!

That was the greatest post ever. We're just the two of us, so we only manage half the mayhem.

You guys are very talented cats!

It did make a good post! What a circus! Do you think Tallulah and I can manage as much mayhem?

This sounds just like our night every night. I can totally understand the stretching the front paws out. Patches does this and when we settle in I usually hold her paws because she likes to put them right over my nose or on my neck. And waking up to whiskers up my nose is an all night thing letting me know they want the blanket lifted up so they can sleep.
