Feline Friday: Don't Try This at Home

 If you're a cat person, you understand that a hungry cat will not permit sleep. 

Nope, no sleeping until said cat is fed. 

So of course I have to hop out of bed frequently in the middle of the night to tend to hungry cats. I know this perpetuates Bad Behavior (especially in Lily) so I usually put her in the basement as soon as the nighttime antics begin. (OK, I give I her just a little nibble first...)

In a effort to improve the quality of my sleep, awhile back I got the Very Bright Idea to put cat treats in my nightstand drawer. This has worked out just great, because at the first sign of a Hungry Cat, I can reach over, EYES STILL CLOSED, pull open my drawer and fling cat treats into the darkness. 

Yep, I have become That Person.

I recently upgraded my operation to include a Tupperware bowl, because the rustling of the treat bag was waking Spouse and causing some unpleasant interactions. :) Now I can open the container and fling treats with very little disruption to the humans in the bed.

The down side of this Very Bright Idea is that now when I go to bed, I have TWO KITTIES sitting by the nightstand in anticipation of Treat Flinging. 
Smart girls. They have trained their human well!

Because of Tucker's insulin shots, we have to feed our herd at 6:30am and 6:30pm give or take an hour. We don't even have to set an alarm clock for the 6:30am feeding...they let us know. :)
