DH & I have noticed that Sophers does not like to get up in the morning....its so strange and we are not used to seeing that.  Our prior kitty used to get up bright and early and want to be fed.  With Sophers, I get up and she is still in her widdle pink bed.  I go put her food down and call her but she doesnt show up.  I go and  check and she is still curled up in her bed with her head tucked under and her paw covering her face.  Sophers is not a morning girl at all!  Does anyone else have a kitty that doesnt like mornings?   Undecided  Sometimes she doesnt get up until 9ish or so!

 Cheesy   That's so cute about Sophers.

The 4 over here pretty much sleep until I get up (thank the kitty gods), but if it's too early, Chami will stay curled up on my clothing on the top shelf of my closet (that is if she hasn't knocked all the clothing down  Angry    lol).

So cute!   Grin

All mine seem to like to get up when (or earlier than) I do.  But I have noticed that they all very much have their own time schedules of napping, eating, playing, interaction, napping, napping, napping...  There has to be a big, major, noisy event in order to divert them from their habitual patterns.  And one of them (Kalahari) is such a deep sleeper that it would take something cataclysmic to wake her up when she's determined it's sleeping time.  (No she is not deaf at all.)  Kalahari is a very active kitty, so I figure she wears herself out and that is why she sleeps deeply.  She covers her face with her paw when she doesn't want to wake up, too.

Most of mine are early risers, waiting for food since they aren't free fed. Some sleep most of the day and are up most of the night.  BJ sleeps in a lot.  Some follow daylight savings time schedule.   Roll Eyes

Is food left out for Sophers overnight?  Maybe she has a full tummy in the morning already or just likes to sleep in during the winter.

LOL well she finally decided to get up...mainly because her dad is cleaning her litterbox and she wants to make sure he does it right....lol  she hasnt eaten a thing yet though.  I do leave some food out at night for her but she has always had the weirdest of appetites.  Sophers just doesnt feel like she should do things the way most other cats do them...sigh....I think she wants to be an enigma.

By the way, Im loving these stories of other's kitties routines, its interesting to read!

LOL JustMe!  I think Sophers must have somehow already read that article except she is forgetting to add the gorging part to her routine.    

Right now DH is underneath the sink....had a teensy leak going on....Sophers keeps bringing her toys to him and dropping them right next to him and then meowing real loud....the nerve of him to not stop what he is doing to play with her...

Sandi, Jack is just like Sophers, he doesn't do mornings.  I always think of the Garfield cartoon with the caption of " I don't do mornings" with Jack.  He is my big lazy boy.  He spends the majority of his day doing nothing but sleeping.  I considered posting a thread of Jack and his day in life.  Only prob, it's just different poses of him sleeping. Grin  But he's especially NOT a morning cat.

Next time you need to take pics of Miss Sophers helping daddy work!

Sandi,
     Sophers and I would get along very well when it comes to sleeping habits (but not so sure of some of her others habits)!   Grin  While raising 3 kids and working in a hospital as an RN, I spent most of my life getting up very early.  So, now in retirement, I do like to sleep until about 9 am when Mandy allows me to.  I am, at heart, a nightowl!   Cheesy  Before her treatment for hyper-T, about 6 am seemed like a good time to her to get me up, as long as she had her midnight snack!  Otherwise, 3 am seemed reasonable to her!   Cheesy  However, now she is much more cooperative, and some days I even get to sleep until that desired 9 am.  Most days, however, she will wake me between 8 and 9 am by sitting next to my head and loudly and persistently meowing until I get the idea.  After she has her breakfast, she promptly finds a comfy spot to go back to sleep.   Roll Eyes

I'm with the nightowl brigade!  Eppie & Otto are quite good, in that they dont tend to stir until they see I'm at least part conscious - and accept me having a quick bathroom trip around 8am, returning to bed for another couple of hours!  Eppie just comes & snuggles up to me (but she's not food-oriented anyway, she prefers going out for a quick reccy before she even thinks of eating). 

Otto does start playing up & down the landing which can get a bit loud - got up yesterday to find one walking boot the other end of the landing to where I'd left it - how he managed that - and without waking me - I'll never know (OK I'm only a size 4, but they're heavy leather boots  Grin Grin)

Max was different - his meeooowalarrrrrm would start anytime from 6am on.  Worse when Mark was here, cos he was less able to master pretending to be deeply asleep - he'd always give Max some attention.  Which caused escalation of the pestering of course - Max would walk over the pillows, paw our heads (& claws didnt stay in well at his age - I'd often sport a scratched nose) and lick Mark's face (notice he didnt get clawed as much  Grin).....Mark always pointed out that he was glad for every bit of time they could share, and he's glad now he never ignored him, esp in the last couple of years  Cry Cry Cry   In Max's last couple of months I did use to go down & feed him a little c.8am since it helped his stomach not to be too empty & build up acid which lead to vomiting if fed late.
