Do You Have A Back Up Alarm Clock?

Over the years I have occasionaly slept in and have been late to work. Given the crazy hours that we work the chances of that happening are pretty high.

So when my alarm clock went off this morning I was certainly very grateful that I had my ‘back up’ alarm clock set.

Well by back up alarm clock wasn’t “set” per se, because it’s actually my cat ‘Misty’.

When I felt a furry paw touch my nose this morning I certainly knew that it was time to get up.

So when I stumbled across this video today (not the best picture quality but it will give you a good laugh) – I thought the similarities were incredibly uncanny. Thankfully my cat Misty has a much softer approach than this cat!

    that's so funny! when my cat was a kitten, she used to hit me a lot to get me to wake up

    Hi Casey. It sounds like cats don't like their owners to sleep in … it's alright for them – they average 18-20 hours a sleep a day so they can catch up on any 'lost' sleep anytime!
