Snickers whines and whacks me in the face at 3am, so I have to get up.

My Persian would wake me up for breakfast like clockwork. I didn't need an alarm clock---until I realized she didn't know about daylight savings time and I woke up an hour late one day.

Luckily, Bobbles and the Basset wait.

Lol cute pic!

My previous cats would wake us up. The one would just come sit on my chest if i took too long waking up (and he wasn't light!). Luckily my boy now just waits.

Close your bedroom doors. Problem solved.

Right close the door, LOLOL My colleague has a dog and closing the door doesn't work with him either! Dog whines and snuffles on the other side of the door and if that doesn't work he knocks things off of the table next to the door. Fur friends are smart and will employ whatever means necessary.

My guys wait patiently for me to get up but I usually wake around the same time daily so it's not an issue.

I had one cat that would wake me then run to the end of the bed and duck. He knew missiles would soon fly - toilet paper roll, a squirt of saline, a rolled up sock - never deterred him. He'd just go into the hall and yell. Then into the bathroom, my next stop, yell some more - the off to the kitchen and you know it - more yelling. By then I was more or less awake and ready to feed him and make coffee. It was our morning routine but when my new b/f who would become my husband first slept at my apartment and saw me gathering my 'weapons' he said he had serious second thoughts! LOL

Yes, our bedroom door is always closed but Peanut (and about 21 of his close personal cat friends) crowd around the door and meow loudly and thump on the door in a random beat that I can even hear with earplugs in. Sometimes we let Earl sleep in the bedroom with us and he'll wake us up by making biscuits on our bellies - he's not necessarily hungry but he's awake and wants smoochies and then he wants to go to the litterbox. If one of the group in the hallway hears movement inside the bedroom - it's game over - SOMEONE is going to go out into the kitchen and feed the troops - and it's always me!!!

The bedroom door IS closed. They are locked in the bedroom every night so they don't bother other family members and so they don't knock off everything little thing they can get to!

See? Close the door and PAY!!! LOL

I leave it open just far enough so everyone can come and go as they please. Joe sleeps on the bed and doesn't move around much, it's the dog that gets on and off the bed. She's a sentry and makes rounds. Orion of course is not easily pleased and if Joe sleeps in the wrong place there's no peace until he moves.

LOL. Toby lets me sleep. Neptune will climb on top of me, paw at my face, and the worst, scratch at my eyelids, to wake me up. I started wearing one of those fleece headbands meant to keep your ears warm over my eyes to stop him, but sometimes it slips off while I'm sleeping. If he would just wait until 7:30 when I have to get up for work I'd probably appreciate it, but he'll start as early as 5:30 some days, most days by 7 he's at it. And closing the door isn't an option. They like to sleep with me (and I like to fall asleep with them near me) and if I close the door at night they both sit in front of it and yowl their hearts out.
