My new organic alarm clock – a cat.
At around 6.30am each morning I am woken to meows. My alarm clock, once it knows I am awake, purrs and then rubs its head against me. This alarm clock makes sure I never fall asleep again.
It all started when I felt sorry for the cat Pebbles, they would get fed by their owner late in the day, meaning they was hungry all morning, so I fed her a small snack in the mornings. Pebbles is now my best friend, a friendly face waiting for me to come home, or waking me up early in the mornings. It is interesting to watch the complex range of body language a happy, secure and trusting furry alarm clock will express to a person who feeds it. Amazingly my new alarm clock keeps perfect time in waking me up in the morning.
