My cat isn't allowed in my bedroom and he knows it because there's nothing I hate more than laying down to go to sleep and having cat hair tickle my nose. He'll sit right at my door, but he will not come in unless I'm gone. Occasionally I will come home and catch him in my bedroom and I make a "pssssst!" sound and he runs out and sits outside the door.

Anyway, about the alarm clock. Every morning between 5-6AM if I'm not awake, he will sit outside my bedroom door and meow in all kinds of different tones until I get up. Even if he already has a full bowl of food and water. Never fails.

Now if I could just get him to make coffee I'd be set.

Haha, have to love the pet alarms. Cat's have such a lovely vocal range. I'm sure that's quite pleasant. O_o

I have a 10-month-old choc. dapple dachshund that gets up every morning at 5:30. The other is a little older, so he likes to sleep in (in comparison). They sleep in the bedroom in on a huge dog bed, so they have run of the room. Once he gets up, he goes to my wife's side and whimpers until she says 'No, oscar, not yet', and then he'll go out and occupy himself for a bit. He returns every 15 minutes and repeats the process until we decide to give in. He's persistent if nothing else. :)

There's a happy ending for me, though. When we move into our house next weekend, the dog bed gets moved to the utility room!

I have a yorkshire terrier who's about a year and a half old. Since the time I got him, he's been my alarm clock. Everyday at 7am he never fails to jump on my bed, lick my face (not calmly), and jump all over my stomach. It always ends the same, he wakes me up; in my half sleep daze I push him off the bed (it's only a foot and a half off the ground), and he jump back up to do it again. Eventually I get annoyed and get up to play fetch or tug of war with him and his favorite toys.

Oh man, that makes me happy to own weenie dogs, haha. No chance they're getting on the bed. They can peek over the edge, but they can't get up.

Man when I was a kid we got my grandmothers Yorkshire Terrier when she died and it used to do the same thing. Anyone who left their bedroom door open was woken up by a licking dog in the morning.

Never underestimate the power of the morning thunder (aka flatulence).

Unfortunately, the wife would become victim of the thunder as well. It probably wouldn't work as a repellant, but I bet it would be a sure way to land myself on the couch the next night. :)

At the end of the day, you cannot control it.

Great alarm clock though, although it has no set time.

Ahh that's so sweet. My cat however is pretty much useless other than kill a display. She sometimes sits beside the television and would look like a stuffed toy and killing cockroaches. Every morning I always see a dismembered cockroach by the garage.

My cat is no good as an alarm clock all it does in head butts the door of whatever room I happen to be in at the time, I'm not even the only person in the house there are 3 more people but she likes me. And she mugs me for food (my food not hers).

My cat is a bit funny to be honest, he sometimes comes in the wake me, jumping on the bed and headbutting me with soft moew's to get me up. Otherswise he's pretty content running around the house playing shadow games with absolutely no one...

And then there are work mornings, where he is KO'd on my sons bed lol
