And...JUMP!

Ow?!

Good morning!

"Huh? Wha? Smokie, its 5:30..."

Ow?!

Oh! You're awake...since you're up...

Ow!

...feed me?

"It's too early little girl...lay down right here and go back to sleep."

Ow.

It's not too early. Besides, Iím hungry and you need to get up.

"Mmmm...not yet..."

Well then, fine. You want to do this the hard way? Sure! I'm wide awake and want my food and water NOW!

Meow? Meow...Owowowow?

Up, up, up! Are you up yet? I'm hungry. Feed me. Are you up yet? Not yet? Oh! You're trying to ignore me. I saw you open your eye. So you're not asleep. Fake sleeping isn't going to work on me. My belly is empty.

"Mmmm...five more. Lay right here. That's a girl. Thatís my silly little girl."

Ow!

Hey now, I didn't want to get petted. I want food. Maybe if I purr and talk at Momma she'll get up now.

Ow...ow...ow...purrrrrr...ow...rrrr...ow...

"There we go...back to sleep with you, silly Smokie."

Ow!

Feed me!

"Smokie, not yet. But if you aren't going to stop, I'll have to...*yawn* feed ya."

Ow!

Oh, you didnít have to. But since you are awake...thanks!

Too cute! I did not get it at first, but I should know better! I have two cats!

Smokie sounds just like my Abby! Good oneóI could relate totally.

Very cute, are you taking about my cat here? I have to lock her in her bedroom every night or this is exactly what happens...
Cute how the 'Ow' is the cat meowing, and not the person saying 'ow' because of da claws, you know.

So easy to identify with. Nicely done. Glad I'm not the only one up early in the morning. We have two cats.

Only a "cat" person fully understands!!!!!!

I assumed it was the claws too! Very cute story...and oh so true.

Brought back my own kitty "ow" memories. Cats have a way of getting our attention--one claw at a time.

I'm not sure what your purr-pose was here, unless it's to verify that dogs have owners while cats have staff! Good fun material
