Got one of those cats who wakes you up in the morning? This is mine. Tiger aka Tiggy Wiggy aka Fuzzy Orange aka Orange Nightmare. Like all my cats, he's got a story. We took in a pregnant feral mama cat when she was trapped and brought to the humane society and they wanted to have her pregnant spayed (killing each near term unborn kitten individually in the process). The person who brought her in refused and took her back home (he does TNR), and we ended up fostering her until her babies were born (her feral colony was almost all gone). I walked into the room where she was set up, about 4-5 days later, and a tiny kitten was in the middle of the floor instead of the birthing box. I picked him up and put him back with mama. That was the first time I met Tiger. We adopted him (all of the kittens out (all the kittens were adopted) but we had to take him back because the person I adopted him out to turned out to be an irresponsible person. He came back with an eye infection and ear mites, and was very depressed. We had to quarantine him while being treated and that's where he met a kitten we also rescued that day, also being quarantined. Tiger and Lucy are still best buddies today.

Tiger has become the loviest, love demanding, total love bug, love-hungry little fiend. I have to fight him off every morning when he notices that I've started to wake up. He rubs on me, pokes me in the face, bites my chin, just insists on LOVE!!! I didn't know anything or anyone could LOVE that much!!!

What a lovely cat. For some reason, your story reminds me of an old study that made a correlation between how married people tended to have a lower IQ as a result of their partners waking them up so they don't get enough sleep. -

Sounds like an awesome kitty.

I love your story, and I think my Bobby might be a relative with the same tendencies and behavior. They even look a little alike. Bobby climbs up on my chest in the morning (I sleep on my back) and starts by chewing on any arm or hand left out of the covers. Not enough to cause pain but enough to wake me up. He weighs over 14 lbs. so he is almost keeping me from breathing too. Meanwhile he keep talking to me, more like muttering obscenities about his lazy human.
