Insomnia and it's many reasons

I FINALLY fell asleep some time around 3:30 ..

and my cat TWITCH decided it was time to be done sleeping at 5:30.

I thought he was hungry, or thirsty, so I got up to get him fed/watered so I could go back to bed.

I come out here ...full bowl of water & Food.

He's standing next to me purring so loudly I can hear him from the floor.

He then goes and sits next to the computer chair as if I'm supposed to go sit in it. DUMB CAT! IT's 5:30 in the BLESSED A.M.! (yes, that's a M*A*S*H* Quote)

"I'm going back to bed"

Twitch "NO" (meowed, in a clear, yeaowlering, no) Twitch

Me "yes"

I snuggle back into my blankets ... and the smart cat that he is, I'm wondering if he'd gotten me up because, well, I was drenched in sweat. Did he know that?

I'm trying to give him the benifit of the doubt, so, I take off the top blanket. It really was more comfortable. I hadn't quite realized I'd woken up drenched in sweat till I started to try to figure out why he would get me up.

So, he comes back on the bed.
He always seems to know when I'm hurting too badly to be walked on ...
so he walks around me tonight ....

up to my head ...

and around my head ...
and his head

goes under my shoulder
and he again



Twitch!! I grab him, turn him around and cuddle with him,
I pretend to fall asleep

and he works his head under

and starts to push.

For a full hour this goes on.

Till ...

I give into his majesty and get up ...

and go into the living room, and he's now asleep on the living room floor.

I did get up and go back to bed, but he heard me and started it again.

He wants me here ... stupid cat. (ok, smart cat stupid human)
