Black Friday Sleep

Years ago, I decided I’d never step foot in a mall on Black Friday, if I wasn’t working retail there. I had the day off with not much planned, so I decided to sleep in. My nap buddy, Inky, had other ideas.

Inky woke me up at 5, chewing on a plastic wrapper, alerting me that breakfast would be two hours early. No. It won’t. Go back to sleep. I am taking the wrapper away. No, she wasn’t eating it, she just makes noise with it so we’ll investigate. She’s done it for years, not chewing enough to get a bite out of it. Just lots of noise.

I went back to sleep and managed to ignore her until it was close to regular feeding time. She sang until the food hit the bowl, and it was quiet for a while. I went back to sleep.

Normally, if she sleeps with me, she’ll climb on top of the bed and settle in on my hip. She started to do that, then, I guess she decided it was cold and pushed her way under the blankets and fell asleep under my arm. She started snoring almost immediately and kept it up for two hours. Those two hours were some of the best sleeping hours I’ve had in a while. The feline heater worked great, once it settled down.
