Sunrise over the Med. Yes. Sunrise. I’m getting to see lots of these (don’t choke Col) – I see all of them in fact.
The Spanish mostly don’t do curtains. Instead they have heavy wooden shutters that eliminate all light completely. One can sleep 24 hours around the clock without ever being woken by daylight. But we are cat sitting.
Breakfast is important to Sushi and she has a built in alarm clock. By 7.30 a.m. she is sitting on my head, doing that kneading number with her claws and purring like a Honda. If I don’t respond instantly, those needle claws are extended to inflict serious pain. Works like a charm. Once I have flung myself out of bed in agony and found my feet, she herds me down to the kitchen. If I don’t move fast enough I am once again given the claw treatment. I have learned to sprint down the stairs.
I wouldn’t dream of shutting her out. She could do serious damage to the door.
TL sleeps ’til 10 a.m. unmolested. This cat has my number.
