HiYa, Ducky here. Oh, it has been so nice around here the past few days. The hots and muggies are gone and lots of open windows. So nice! Me and mum have been enjoying it day and night! Yep even at night, why, cuz that makes sleeping better.
Which brings us to this weeks retirement topic - Sleeping
Now when beans retire they don't really have a set schedule to live their life by. So they don't HAVE to get up at a certain time. That is nice for them, but sometimes things can get way out of whack.
We know some of our blogging buddies have retired beans that choose to keep different sleep schedules. They stay up late, get up late and for us kitties that can create problems. You know we like to get fed on reasonable normal and usual schedules. For me, that isn't a huge problem, mum always has enuf crunchies out for me to eat. But other kitties that get gooshy foods, well their little tummies must be empty. You have my OK to jump, meow, sing or do what ever you need to do to get your beans out of the sack to feed you.
A few nights she has stayed up later, playing too much on the puter, then she does sleep a bit later than usual. Although only three times since she retired has she turned on the noisy box by the bed to get up by. Twice were for racy car days so she got there on time. The other was this week as a furiend wanted to meet her for breakfast! Well, thankfully for mum, not a really early breakfast. But mum didn't want to miss it, she hadn't seen this furiend in a while.
I sit on mum at night so she stays in bed. Once she falls asleep, I can go to my own sleepy spot or if the window is open, I jump up there. I can keep watch in case she tries to get up and wander off! No she does not sleep walk.
So, hopefully you and your human can get a sleeping pattern that works for both of you. But don't you be letting them miss meals!
Next weeks topic - Play time.
Happy weekend all. Long holly-day weekend her in Mericky. Drive safe if you are going somewhere.
