Capri the alarm clock

At 6:30 the other morning I was still lying in bed, fighting with the alarm and banging the snooze button. The bed was warm, it was early, I was cranky and facing a day full of meetings, etc., all of which made me hit the snooze button a few times more than I should have.

Along comes Capri. She knows it’s time for me to be up. So she lies down right in front of my face (I’m on my side), and stares at me. Every minute or so, she’d say “mrow?” and then wait for me to move. We did this for a good 10 minutes. I kept expecting her to start tapping me with her paw or something. But all she did was lie in front of my face and stare and meow at me at regular intervals. If I opened an eye to peer (glare) at her, she’d let out a very excited “MROW!” and stand up. If I closed my eye again, she’d sit back down and go back to “mrow?” questions every minute or so.

Such a good little alarm clock. But there’s one problem: she doesn’t have a snooze button. Sigh. I’m a bit worried she’s going to pull this act on the weekend when I don’t have to get up.

I’m learning to laugh at myself on a daily basis. I’m a librarian (cataloger) and I love it. My job involves all things metadata related in any and all formats. I have been known to cause a ruckus when necessary (aka troublesome cataloger) and make no apologies for it. I have a passion for continuing education and teaching. I’m a newbie coder (still learning). I like to cook. I’m a fan of rugby (go Australian Wallabies!) and ice hockey (go Detroit Red Wings!). I’m car-free and bike/walk a lot. I’m learning to love running one stride at a time. I own (and love) a very mouthy cat with a punk attitude and a slightly neurotic rescue mutt.
