Look who’s here wanting me to get up.

“When you arise in the morning, think of what a precious privilege it is to be alive – to breathe, to think, to enjoy, to love.” ~ Marcus Aurelius, Roman Emperor and Philosopher

Thanks for the wake-up call, Vivian.  But first let me wipe the sleep – and the cat hair – from my eyes!

  1. Wise words from the emperor and ones which we should remember! Ahh… delightful photos of your photogenic cat, a professional model perhaps? What a lovely way to wake up, albeit too early! 😀 Hope you’ve had a great weekend, Jennifer!

  2. No problem, mom. But you are getting up. Now. Right? I love this, Jennifer. Piper walks all over us until we have no choice but to rise and shine! Parker sits back and lets Piper do the dirty work. 🙂

    1. Maisie is our Parker, Lois. She’s not so in-your-face as her sister, although they both like to sleep on our bed. But when Vivian’s ready to get up, everyone has to. Another thing she does is hitch her claws in the bedroom carpet until we scold her – and then get up. She’s no fool. 😀

  3. Cats are on their own schedule and they want what they want, don’t they? I love that quote too because it’s such an important reminder. Came at a good time for me. Hope you’re enjoying a warm spring day, Jennifer 🙂
