That’s just like me as a teenager trying to wake up on a school day, except I’d wake up to hit the snooze button on the alarm every 5 minutes for 2 hours or so.
Stage 1: Somewhat aware of your surroundings but just about to drift into dreamland.
Stage 2: Eye movement stops and brain waves become slower with only an occasional burst of rapid brain waves. Cuteness persists.
Stage 3: Deep sleep, feel free to poke gently.
It’s actually a little known fact that cats breath through their ears, as shown in the photo.
Now with added bandana for extra cuteness.
Right so he grew up, moved in with his girlfriend, still comes back, strolls in and takes food at will… Sounds like a teenager to me.
After falling down a chimney and into a seaside home, Mr Pooh the seagull was destined to become a very confused young bird.
The herring gull was adopted by June and Steve Grimwood, who found him as a soot-covered baby in their fireplace – and now appears to believe he is actually a cat.
The couple brought him up with their cats, providing a basket from which he acquired a taste for Whiskas.
Three years later, Mr Pooh has left the family home, but only as far as a nest on the roof with a female partner. And he can’t resist returning-three times a day for his favourite-food, announcing his arrival by tapping on the door.
The Grimwoods, from Shoreham-by-Sea in West Sussex, found him as a baby after he popped out of the chimney three years ago covered in black soot.
Mr Grimwood, 52, said: ‘His parents were long gone so we looked after him in the garden for a few days. We have three cats and at first they were a bit wary of him but after a week or so he was eating cat food out of a bowl with them.
‘I think he thought he was a cat.
Now Mitzi, Gus and Henry let him share their food when he flies down from the roof, where he has nested with a female.
June Grimwood, 50, said: ‘He comes to visit three times a day for breakfast, dinner and tea and makes himself known by pecking on the door to come in.
‘He doesn’t try to attack us because he is used to us.”
At first the cats were quite wary of him but after a week they were eating out a bowl together. He’ll also often wander in and help himself to cat food.
”He’ll often just wander in and help himself to cat food or the cats’ biscuits.
‘He also knows the sound of the fridge door opening and he’ll come in for that as well.
‘He’s just like another pet in the family and even comes when he is called.
“Meow, I’m having a sleep over, will you stay for breakfast?”
I keed, I keed, these two really are best buds and wuv each other vevy vevy much.
They say you should let sleeping dogs lie. Luckily there’s no such adage regarding cats.
