Cat-O-lympics: Late Night Human Wakeup


I'm honored to be hosting a Cat-O-Lympic Event here in my Neighborhood!  The one that I'm hosting is my personal favorite -- Late Night Human Wakeup.  It's a sport that takes skills, bravery and purrsistance.  Over the next few days I'm looking for the world's best competitors.  Sometimes it's difficult to capture those late night antics on film, so I'll accept stories as well.  Share your stories or pictures either on your blog (be sure to send me the link) or in the comments.  
 
The competition is sure to be fierce as the cats of the cat blogosphere are the smartest and most skilled felines in the world.  Good luck to all!

This is a photo of some of my late night antics.  Last night, I crawled under the covers and waited.  When my human went to bed she thought I was just sleeping under there.  I waited until the very moment she began to drift off and then I attacked her feet!

  4. Great form, Tuck!

    This one is a good category for us! We are pretty skilled at waking up mom and dad in the middle of the night with such techniques as: repeated and persistent meowing; tapping their noses with our paws; and walking on their heads. :)

  14. Great event, Mr. Tuck.

    We'll post our "story" tomorrow/Friday morning at 4 a.m.

    Unfortunately, there won't be visuals because none of us can get to the camera when the antics are going on. It would break the ambiance!

  22. This one - I am an expert. I like to go out at 4.00am for a quick patrol and then as soon as I hear the first alarm go off in the bedroom, I start meowing at the window - my aim is to make them get out of bed before the next alarm - they sometimes hit that snooze button three times! So I make sure I am nice and L O U D!

  28. Harley is definately a runner in this event. He plays in the bathtub with toys he has hawled in there and sometimes there are no toys. He also will go into the kitchen and meow real loud like a big baby. Oh, then maybe in the master shower he will sit in and meow. LOL.
