Motion Detector

~My theme for this month’s Nano Poblano challenge is Motion~

As we all know (at least those of us with fur kids), breakfast is THE most important meal of the day (followed closely by dinner.  And snacks.)

Normally, I feed my two kitties once I’m up, vaguely functional and have had my coffee.  Umm, that’s 7 a.m.- ish. Maybe 7:30. Sometimes 8. Not any earlier.

My husband and I were out of town all last week and their caregiver fed them breakfast…umm, around 5:30 a.m. every day.

My first night back, I’m woken from a really cool dream by, “Mrowww-chirp?”  I try to ignore this – OMG, it’s the middle of the night. I am sleeping.



And there is made my crucial mistake.

I moved.


That was the signal that Mom was alive, and therefore, capable of making breakfast.

Immediately, two little hairy bodies burrowed under the toasty blankets like maddened gophers, chirping and fussing and complaining and sticking cold noses into warm places.

I checked the clock – Yep. 5:36 a.m.


Now we have to re-train each other.  It’s going to be a rough (and early) week.
