My cat IS my alarm clock. Not because he loves me. It’s because he wants breakfast by 6:30am!

My late kitty, Chloe, would lick my eyelids. I woke up ONE time at 3am to use the bathroom, then cuddled her as I went back to sleep, and she decided that was cuddle time from then on. Every morning at 3am... Lol I miss it terribly now.

u/calenka89 8d ago

She definitely was! For a small cat, she had a big attitude. And she fit right in with our family. Had her for 16 years, she was roughly 17 at the time of her passing. She was my baby and I miss her so much. I now have 2 domestic shorthair girls that I adopted from the SPCA, same as Chloe. I will never forget her.

u/torrefied 8d ago

I thought I had it rough with a cat who woke up and demanded breakfast at 5:00 (sharp) every morning. He lived to 18 years old. The number of days he did not wake me up with his howling I can count on one hand & always knew that meant something was not right. 18 years.

4

u/eiridel 8d ago

One of my two cats is nearly 18 and we joke that he learned from my parents’ dogs that if he barks he gets what he wants—so every single day for at least an hour before each meal (which he has received at 6:30am, 12:30pm, and 6:30pm daily for seventeen years) he paces around the kitchen screaming. A full hour.

Then once he’s eaten he curls up with someone, usually me, for a post-meal nap.

I love this cat so much. It’s absurd.

u/Pho-k_thai_Juice 8d ago

u/Str8butboysrsexy 8d ago

Doesnt your cat end up fat? Or Im guessing you can limit it per day

u/hunterglyph 8d ago

You can limit it, if you get a decent one. We researched a lot and ended up spending about $100 bucks on one that could drop only 15 crunchies or so at 5am, enough to tide kitty over til breakfast. It works great, and kitty is skinny.

Cats can also get an upset stomach if they don’t eat for 8 hours.

When I was a kid my dad was the first person to wake up in the morning. Our cat must have had a pretty good internal body clock, because she would go and sit on his chest 10-15 minutes before the alarm would go off. She’s sit and purr, etc. Once his alarm went off she’d jump up and head to the kitchen and wait for her breakfast to be served.

u/Glute_Thighwalker 8d ago

My cats used to do the same before my wife bought us an auto feeder machine. Completely curbed the 5am wakeup yowls, plus it actually helped the big boi lose some weight since i tended to give them bigger servings than what they needed. Only downsides are it sometimes needs to get unclogged, and it's easy to accidentally let it go empty (though the cats def let us know when they missed a meal)

47

u/Glute_Thighwalker 8d ago

Buddy got one of those, and fat boi figured out how to get the hopper lid off. So, he built a shelf up near the ceiling with nothing near it to house the feeder, and built a PVC chute from it down to the bowl on the floor.

When my then GF now fiancée and I adopted our cat, the first few nights were an adjustment because our cat would wake us up at 3-4am to feed him. She was so upset because she was getting shitty sleep and wanted to take him back 🙄 (I don’t think it works out that way to return a cat to the humane society?) She kept our bedroom door and banished him. I felt so bad hearing his meowing outside the door. However, I figured out a solution was to get an automatic feeder that dispenses his food at certain times everyday. It was a godsend because problem was gone. His food dispenses early in the AM around the same time as my alarm going off. After he gets a few nibbles, he comes up to cuddle before I have to get up for work.

So cute. My cat lingers around when he hears my alarm. If I take too long he jumps up and purrs. On weekends, though, he will lay next to me patiently as I sleep in. He's a bit of a gentleman at least. He screams at me throughout the day for no discernable reason so he definitely could be rude in the mornings.

I'm envious of you and your special kitty. Enjoy!!

Everyday I wake up and wonder how my tiny cat pushed me to the very edge of the bed...

My cat will usually wake me up by standing over me and staring until I get up to give her breakfast, she’s like my own personal Michael Myers

u/PepperJacs 8d ago

I do this exact same thing! Set the alarm early because my cat jumps up for a snooze on me - not sublet on his chest

I have a 14 week old kitten and this has become our new routine!

I've had to lock him out of my room while I sleep (sadly) so now I wake up, go and open the door, then hop back into bed and he comes up and lays on my chest for morning snuggles <3

My dog did something similar. She figured out that someone opening their eyes and/or turning to grab their phone or turn on a light = waking up. So she would jump up on the bed and lay down, then stare at you until you opened your eyes, then she would lay on you and nuzzle her head under your chin.

She’s older now, 11 year old chocolate lab. She has arthritis and can’t do as much as she used to. I like to lay on the ground for a bit whenever I wake up so we can still snuggle like she likes.

🤣😭 You sound like my dad who’s the bestest Grampaw and spoils his grandkittens so that it stuns even ME. 😍

He’s literally refused to disturb them for hours before, if he doesn’t have anything he considers pressing, to do at the time…but let’s be fair. Unless he literally has to go out the door, he usually stays until THEY leave. 🥰

This is love

u/plantsareneat-mkay 8d ago

I would prefer that. One of our cats learned to sort of mimic my husbands alarm. So he would just scream at 4am when he was hungry, especially on days off lol

I wish I had someone who loves me like your cat

u/miraculous-mads 8d ago

My cat also knows what the alarm means. But to her it’s a sign to go into crackhead mode so that I keep getting distracted while trying to get ready to leave for work 😂

u/OutrageousPersimmon3 8d ago

Our old cat would start licking my eyelids if I pushed snooze.

u/GloomyAd594 8d ago

My cat is my alarm. Comes and lays on my chest and just waits until I open my eyes so he’ll be the first thing I see. 😂

One of the things I LOVE and a little thing that keeps me going through the hard times:

When I nap, my big orange cat often naps with me, on the far corner of my bed. At some point, he will get up, walk over and put his paw on my chest (with or without claws) and softly say.... "mew." then turn around and go back to his corner and back to sleep.

Somehow, that little "mew" has so many messages in it. But to me, it's always "love you!" :)

u/Mr-Fahrenheit_451 8d ago

30 minutes is wild. My cat would get 5, MAYBE 10 of me waking up extra early

u/Fluffythetiger 8d ago

That is so sweet!

u/callmebraylon 8d ago

Surely she must be so happy about that. Small things that make our day better and make our pets happier too.

u/Ekdp3 8d ago

Lucky! Mine has learned that the alarm means it's feeding him so he goes into attack mode and starts biting at me, several minutes before it goes off. Even on weekends at the same time!

Oh. My regular alarm goes off at 450 am.

u/singnadine 8d ago

You da man!

u/LilLordFuckPants404 8d ago

My cat also learned that my alarm means I wake up. If I don’t respond straight away, she slaps my lips with her claws slightly out so I get up to feed her.

u/Jaxlee2018 8d ago

I do the same - it’s the kitty best way to start a morning.

u/daenagtihe 8d ago

Wholesome, aww

u/bymyenemy 8d ago

Suuuure, its about HER happy time. Keep telling yourself its not for your own happy time but we know the truth.

u/lateteawiththerabbit 8d ago

Aww so sweet. When my Bengal was still alive she knew my alarm was to wake me up. But she would meow non stop until I finally got out of bed. Then she would go lay in her cat bed and go to sleep for most of the day. Lol

u/gilmangriff1 8d ago

My cat learned that meowing and poking me while I sleep means I wake up faster and chooses to do that 2 to 3 times early in the morning. We are not the same :(

u/Everettrivers 8d ago

My cat starts pawing my face two hours before my alarm goes off.

u/Bilaakili 8d ago

Evidently you’ve set your alarm much too late.
