Dog & Cat Reveille

Cats and dogs can’t play bugles, but they don’t lack for ingenuity when they want to wake you up. Parakeets get in on the act, too.

One thing your pet turtle never bothers to do is to try to wake you up. Our cat Buster used to sit on the pillow by your head and bat the shade–bat-bat-bat– either until you were ready to scream, or, on rare occasions, the shade flew all the way up with a rattle and a bang.

Yeah, that’ll get you up.
