1. I laugh every time I watch this!
One of my cats, Brianna, has this exact same routine in the morning. The funny meow, the chirping, the jumping up and down, and the little poke to the face. If she finds my softball gear, I'm in trouble!

3. All cat owners can relate!
I've never gotten the baseball bat, but I've been poked in the eye plenty of times. :)

Our cat doesn't pull out a bat.

Instead, he leaves a nice fat turd on the bathtub, if one of us doesn't open the door for him in the morning when he's ready to go.

12. We solved this problem by buying automatic feeders.
Never had the cats waking us up again. Of course, once our son was born...

(I wonder if the automatic feeders would get jammed by Cheerios.)

13. this is great! I have cat named Gretchen who
acts like she's dying of hunger if I don't get up and feed her. The other bigger cat, Merlin, let's her do all the work of getting me up. He's such a manipulator :evilgrin:

14. I have seen this before, but it makes me laugh every time. I'm
sure that anyone who has cats can relate to this. I've had cats before who thought that it was their duty to wake me and let me know that the alarm would be going off soon. They were very predictable and would start the kneading and meowing 15-30 minutes before the alarm.
