Mom was sleepin' on her left side. I'm sure she thought that would deter any early mornin' wake ups. (I usually wake her up w/a kiss). Well....when you wanna go out...you wanna go out. . I just gave her a big paw smack on the back of her head...that woke her up.
Oh, I know from experience that a nosey nose poke usually works in cases like this. But most times it just results to a pat on the head an' then she'll roll back over an' snuggle deeper in the blankets. I swear she can do this in her sleep. Trust me....a paw slap gets instant results.
