Good Morning Tobi!

Tobi playing with her favorite toy: Spurgeon's tail.

Typical day in the Archer household from 6:00am-7:00am. Its not as impressive as an hour in the life of Jack Bower, but I realized this morning the humour in it. Tobi is on what Clint and I nicknamed..... ODF "Owner Directed Feeding" because she had a weight problem for a while. :) So now her feed times are 7am and 7pm. But an hour before her feed time she tries any lengths possible to get you to feed her early.....especially in the morning.

6:00am - Tobi starts purring loudly to wake us up
6:10 - Tobi crawls towards Clints face...reaches though the covers and pillows and bats it with a big "whap"
6:15 - Tobi bats Clints face again, Tobi gets shoved off bed by Clint
6:16 - Tobi finds anything that can be batted around our room....and bats it with great fierceness and noise in her 3rd attempt to get us out of bed.
6:18 Tobi bats Clints face again...this time with claws
6:30 - Tobi climbs on my bedside table, and with one fowl swoop knocks off my lamp, my Bible, my Nalgene, and my photo frame with a great "clerclap plunk plunk"
6:32 - Tobi rolls around my Nalgene...good thing its indestructible...and runs it into anything that makes noise
6:40 Tobi knocks the key to our door off my nightstand (clever girl!)
6:42- In her last attempt she starts chasing her tail...over our feet, our legs, and even our heads.
6:45 Noah wakes up
6:46 I scrounge around looking for the key....sleepwalk toward our door (Tobi is going ballistic at this point) feed Tobi.
7:00am Feed Noah....Tobi purrs on my lap in full contentment while I'm feeding Noah.
You'd think it'd be easier to just feed Tobi at 6am....but we do this every morning.
