I sleep with my iPhone near my bed and one morning, I shot this video:
Those of you who live with cats will understand.
Some context--my bedroom has "interior" window. They used to be exterior windows that opened onto a porch. The porch was enclosed at some point (long before I moved in) and the windows became interior. I keep my bedroom door closed at night and control cat-access by opening and closing the window. I go to sleep with it open and Tabitha (the cat) will usually enter the room some time in the night, usually before I fall asleep. In the cold weather, she'll get under the covers and sleep by my feet.
Between 4 and 5am (sometimes it's as late as 6am!), Tabitha gets restless and leaves the room. Sometimes, if she's acting crazy, I'll put her out. Then I close the window. Some time later (between 6 and 7am), she'll come to the window and meow. Less and less frequently she'll bang on the window. UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES do I open the window! This is why she only bangs on it a few times a week instead of every single morning.
This is life with a cat.
Grateful for: Tabitha.
