Same here, especially in the summer when the early morning is the best time to be outside. In the summer we're out the door before the cat even thinks about waking us up. Then we take a long nap in the afternoon, since it's hot out anyway.

My internal alarm clock wakes me almost every morning between 6:00 and 6:20 a.m. After 20 tears, I still haven't figured out how to turn it off.

My alarm clock goes off at 5 AM every day. I have my indoor cats that want to eat and I feed homeless cats that are hungry and waiting for their food. I like getting up early so it doesn't bother me.

We’re both retired but we have alarms set in our iPads (0630 and 1830). In our case, we do it because we have a kitty that has to have meds every 12 hours plus or minus 15 minutes.

I don’t set an alarm clock unless I have an appointment that means I MUST get up by a certain time, and that time is early enough I might not wake up early enough.

Weather and time of year greatly influence my natural waking time. In winter, I can always tell we had more than a trace of snow overnight because I wake up significantly later. Same for when a spell of normally sunny weather gets replaced by a rainy morning.

I know.

Doesn't matter what time I go to bed, if I go at 1am, I may sleep in to 7am. I'm a bad sleeper so I adjust the front end and normally fall asleep around 10pm.

This morning I was up at 5am.

I tell Alexa to wake me to music @ 0500 so I can get to my 0630 Yoga class on Fridays just in case I don't get up naturally. But other than that, I'm usually up too early (0400s). Just picked up a bottle of melatonin as i think I may have

I've always been more of a nightbird than an early bird. I generally don't set an alarm but when I start eventually hitting the bed at 2am, which means I don't get to sleep for another 30+ minutes & I typically need 7hrs, then I start setting an alarm so that I don't sleep through half the morning.

Sleeping late was fine when it happened the first year in retirement, it made me feel naughty & bad... I like that.
