Home Spun comic strip #525
It was Chase's cat, Merlin, who first learned the secret of waking the boy. He would walk along Chase's dresser and knock things down, starting small and moving to more breakable objects, until Chase finally gave up and got out of bed to feed him. This gave us many early mornings for learning adventures. And then, the inevitable happened.
Chase learned how to lock his door.
It is the saddest thing to see Merlin mournfully mewing at his boy's door. Mainly because when he gives up he comes into our room. And he knocks things off of our dressers. He also taught Dusty how to do this. Dusty doesn't like to wait for her morning meal, so she's been forcing us out of bed earlier each morning.
If it's Dusty, it must be 6am. Or earlier. Depends on her mood. I'm so sleep deprived...
