Routine Routine Routine—Pets are Family

It’s Friday at 7:00 am and I hear a little “meow” on the side of my bed. It’s my cat Millie telling be “it’s time to get up.” As I get up Millie goes over to the bedroom window, turns around and “meows” again. She wants me to go over to the window and give her a little pet. She then leads me down the hall and gets up on her cat post and waits patiently for me to give her some wet food that she only takes a taste or two of. Nevertheless, she has to have it. At 12:30 pm she signals me with another”meow” meaning that it’s time for me to take my shower. After my showers, Millie is outside the bathroom door waiting for me to brush her. I finish up, get dressed and follow her to the chair. I brush her at the same time in the same place every day. It’s evening and she is sitting beside me as I pet her. She gets up, goes to her bowl and stares me down. It’s time for her snack. I get up and place a few snacks in her bowl. She then comes back over, jumps on the chair, lies next to me and expects more pets. After about 45 minutes, she gets up once again, walks over to her bowl, stares me down and expects more snacks. I give in as usual. This continues several more times throughout the evening. At about 12:00 midnight while I’m watch Colbert, Millie is looking at me “meowing” once again. This time she’s signaling me to go to bed so she could have the chair to herself. I usually get up and turn in for the evening.

As you can see from this routine, I’ve  been spoiling our little Millie but cats do love humans and have a set routine everyday. This is one of the reasons why I don’t like leaving her and that our travel is very limited. Pets are like kids. Parents usually don’t like to leave them for an extended period of time.

Remember, pets are family!
