Cat Alarm Clock

Every morning Moo knocks on the door to wake us up. I had no idea that he doubled as an alarm clock.
This morning I set him for 6:55.
He was right on time.

such a sweetie!
i woke up by my cat today too, he fell out of the bed and i woke up by the sound of him hitting the floor and there he sat, looking surprised.

one of our cats paws at my dresser, making a squeaking sound with her little paw pads. unfortunately, this sometimes begins around 5:15.

Moo and my son would get along well. Maybe they went to the same alarm clock college.

Suzanne said...

that is ADORABLE!
my cat alarm clock woke me up yesterday by hacking up a hair ball right next to my pillow - not quite as nice as yours.

My kitty is a knocking cat, too. She knocks on the door to get in or out depending on which side she's on. She also taps me on the shoulder each morning to say - Hey! I'd like some food now, Thank you!

Love the photo!

I also have alarm clock cats!

One licks my face and the other one paws at my cheeks- no joke!

I LOVE MOOO POSTS!

famapa said...

oh moo!! little mo lets me sleep until I wake up now, but for years she wouldn't be so polite... our bed used to be by the window in our old place and she'd lift the blind up so the sun would hit us right in the face!

Paula said...

What a great shot. What a sweetie. My Oscar has been put to peace a year ago and I still miss him dearly.

"Hello? Mamma? . . . . you awake?"

Way too cute! Your kitty reminds me of Dustin Hoffman in "The Graduate" in the church scene.

Nothing's better than a useful cat :)

If only my goldfish would do the same thing.

Diana Elizabeth said...

so so cute!

my kitty likes to knock on my door in the middle of the night so he can come in and sleep in my bed. i wish he would do it when i needed to wake up instead!

clairette said...

peewee said...

That is hilarious! Perfect pic!!

Rebecca said...

oh my gosh, that is adorable! what an honor to be woken up so early by such a cute cat.

Natalie said...

So adorable! My kitty Pearl does the same thing, too! She also likes to scamper down our long hallway every morning at 4:55 just to remind us that the time to get up is coming in a few hours.

Jennifer Ramos said...

Ha! That's cute, my dog does that...but not quite knocking....more like makes a weird noise at the foot of my bedroom door...

Katie cat said...

Oh man, what a cutie. My cat acts as an alarm too! But only every few days or so, and not always at the same time so I have back-up!

SweetToothVintage said...

adorable. my pups do the same thing...even on weekends.

Thao said...

What a sweet way to be woken up! My kitties used to bounce on my head to wake me up... far less subtle, but effective!

Erica Leigh said...

lol at moo's expression.
he looks like he means business! seems like he takes his job very seriously. ;)

soft flame said...

Ah, this pic of Moo totally reminds me of Simon's Cat! Especially the "Let Me In" episode!

I wish I had a cat! they're so cute and warm and fuzzy.. It's too bad I'm allergic :(

Geisslein said...

Julie said...

Katie,

Thank you for my daily dose of happiness. Kitty Kisses to Moo.

Jennywenny said...

Very cute! I need to find the 'set button' on my moggie, she seems to be set for 5.30am, which is a little on the early side. I do love not having to set an alarm clock!

Lisa said...

This busted me up. I've seen this from the rear before, but the front is hilarious, and it made me think of my dear departed Dad who used to irritate us on Sat mornings banging the hollow-core door with the flat of his hand yelling 'Rise and Shine!' Yeah. Moo's certainly more charming about it. Brilliant, thinking of re-setting him. You, you're good.
I found you off of the Happiness Project site and was more charmed the more I scrolled down. As an daily ground down artist at heart, you have inspried me. I'm 57, have been a graphic designer, and doing a project- garden with drought tolerant plants tha make good bouquets and look fab in the yard.

Jordan Clarke said...

hehehe...my cat does that too. she also whinges from the bottom of the stairs when she's bored.
i love cats.

Bridget said...

Incredible cat!Incredible blog!

Sarah said...

I love that, your post made my day. I wish I could set my cat.
