Foster Cat Chats

Inside Buddy Foster's World



kat sämnēə

NOUN inability to sleep due to persistent pawing of face by an adorable kitty, usually occurring between 3:00 a.m. and 8:00 a.m.

synonyms: ailurosomnia; sleeplessness


Mommy is suffering from catsomnia. I should not be happy but I cannot help but feel smug.

You may remember in People Training  I posted that I had not manged to get Mommy out of bed in the morning.   Well, I have succeeded!  I have caused Mommy’s catsomnia.

Mommy's Room

Mommy’s Room

Persistence is the key.  With the man away, I was alone in the mornings and did not get breakfast so I had to be determined.  I slept in one hour segments. I began jumping on Mommy’s bed at 3:00 a.m. She is rather sleepy then and I get a few pats and a “Hi Buddy”.

At 4:00 a.m. she is slightly more awake and reminds me of the time.

At 5:00 she quickly comes downstairs and gives me breakfast before going back to bed.

Not satisfied, I wake her again at 6:00 a.m.

Finally at 7:00 a.m. she gets up, ready to start her day.

Causing insomnia works only if you are a lovable cat with a mommy that adores you and does not get angry with you.   That is my situation exactly.

    What an excellent plan! Princess 👑 Mila and wake our Mom every two hours during the night, or more if we can, by getting under the covers for warmth or play-fighting with each other. Sometimes we wake her by jumping from a tall chest of drawers onto the bed. Other times we sit on her neck. As you said, the human’s level of affection is very important. Being loved makes everything OK. We like your post very much!

      Thank you Princess Pickles. Mommy actually likes catsomnia because she gets so much more done in a day. Aren’t we cats wonderful?

    haha! oh dear, this is my life exactly!! I’m lucky with Lucia though – she loves to get me up ten minutes before the alarm will go off, she wakes me by washing my face and if I put the snooze button on she will snuggle into me and call it a morning in bed 😉 a flexible approach to cat-somnia 🙂 !
