I found this YouTube animation featured on PhiLLy Roll. It has been passed around a bit, probably because it is so true to life — except for the baseball bat. We have two cats and experience this scenario nearly every morning. Kai and Fleck both become active about 5:00 am, but Kai is the one who make a point of trying to wake me up. As in this video, he even does the light paw tapping on my cheek. He also sticks his little rubbery nose against the tip of mine. The purpose of this appears to be to get his whiskers close enough to tickle my face. Fortunately for us, Kai and Fleck are Manx cats and have oddly diminished vocal abilities. Their meows are soft, lightly aspirated ‘misshh’ and not so hard on the ears as a full-bodied ‘meowww’.Vodpod videos no longer available.
