There’s something about cats, isn’t there? Somehow they seem to rule the roost, get their own way in all things, and the whole household revolves around their wishes and desires. This morning was no exception. We all seem to have our household routines, and I generally make our bed after breakfast, while Robin attends to the dishes. But not today. Muffy was fast asleep on our bed, and I didn’t have the heart to disturb her. Bed making can wait a while, I decided, we can’t disturb the cat.
Now Muffy is getting into her twilight years, she seems to be quite restless and wide awake during the night. She often jumps on and off the bed and can’t settle. And if I get up for a nocturnal walk, she is always wide awake and meowing and needs a cuddle to settle down again. No wonder she is worn out once morning arrives – she needs to catch up on her beauty sleep.
