Saturday Morning Sports Center!

Oh Dog! Happy Saturday!

Saturdays are the BEST!

Saturdays are the BEST!

We have a game here at the Rumpydog household every weekend- see how early we can wake Jen up to feed us!

It’s so much fun….. well, not for Jen. But the rest of us have a blast!

In fact, it’s so much fun, I wrote a poem about it. I call it,

Its a race to see who can get to the cat food first!

It’s a race to see who can get to the cat food first!

Saturday Morning Sports Center

It’s morning, and we want to eat,
but the human is still sound asleep.
So we’ll whine and we’ll cry,
then we’ll pat on her eyes.
Fed early on Saturday. Sweet!

Yeah? Whats so sweet about it?

Yeah? What’s so sweet about it?

What about you? Do YOU play this game with YOUR humans?





About Jen and the Furries

Hello and welcome. I’m a 50 something woman who’s probably awake when she should be sleeping. Oh, and there are animals, because who doesn’t have pets?

  2. I just renamed our Rottie the strawberry alarm clock because he wakes us the second a bit of sun illuminates the sky. Our Rattie loves to sleep but the big guy wants to go! Loved your poem!

  5. In our house we (the humans) are early risers so there is no problem. In fact, Mollie (the cat) is usually sleeping when her breakfast comes. The rest of the cats wait patiently. If I am late (like I don’t feel well) all 4 cats pile onto the bed and purr. That will wake the dead.

  6. The only one that ever dared wake up Mum was Bozie, my adopted Daddy cat. Sid and I don’t dare. Happy Caturday!

  9. The cats here aren’t effective enough so I like to chime in with a special cry I’ve developed that is so high pitched that people think there’s a small, young dog hidden in the house. It is VERY loud too, because I have a deep chest. I bet you could get an excellent high yoddle going to help the cats Rumpy! They’re cats. They need help.

  12. Our two cats play that game at our house, too — only their aim is to wake up “Mama”. Hugs to you, Rumpydog! 🙂

  13. Actually, my pets are pretty good with that!
    Thankfully they are patient when it comes to feeding times! Shocking I know!

  14. We play, “whine till they take us to the dog park” and “whine till we go for a walk” and then there’s “whine when we want snacks, especially what they’re eating” and oh yeah, don’t we can’t forget, “a SCREAMING whine whenever company comes and they put us outside” – how rude is that!!! Happy Saturday, wag wag, Max & Bella

  17. That’s fun! And it sounds so simple. I never wake Mom up. She always gets up before me and calls me lazy!

    Love and licks,

  19. There are times that BJ decides he needs to go out at 2 or 3 in the morning. He comes over and hits me a few times. If that doesn’t work, he pulls the covers off me. Remember, I’m in an apartment in a city. I need to get dressed put shoes on and take him out. Grrrrrrr

  20. Love the poem and photos. Our two cats are used to being brushed first before they’re fed. But, yes, they do nag for us to get up early and take care of their needs. They have Part 1 – some wet food. Then, we have wait about a half hour for Part 2 – the dry food. Otherwise, they’d gobble it all down in a nanosecond and might get sick. 😉

  26. When I initially commented I seem to have clicked the -Notify me when new comments
    are added- checkbox and from now on each time a comment is added I receive
    4 emails with the exact same comment. Is there an easy method you are able to remove me from
    that service? Kudos!
