I Think My Cats Can Count
OK. I have about a dozen clocks, of which six chime. I get home from work between 7:00 and 7:30 am and the first thing I do is feed the cats. I then go to bed and set my alarm for 7:30 pm. I have noticed over the past several days that after 7:00 pm, (after my clocks have chimed seven) my cats descend on me and wake me up before my alarm can go off. My black cat Guinevere pokes me in the back or touches my arm. My crazy calico Willow stomps up and down on top of me, and my precious Ginger rubs her head against my face. Sarah is already out sitting next to the food bowls. And they won't leave me alone until I get up to feed them. Seems cats don't have snooze buttons. So, can cats count or am I imagining things?
