I think if I ever get another pet I need to be shot. My sleep is so interrupted by these animals that sometimes it's a wonder I can function. Our dog had 2 bladder surgeries for bladder stones when she was younger and it left her with the inability to hold her water (so to speak) for more than a couple of hours. So I am usually sound asleep around 3:30 ish and she wakes me by shaking all over ( I am a very light sleeper). So I get up and take her out to do her business, then she has to get a small drink (very small) and then I have to go do my business and then I get back in bed. She usually wants in bed with me. So she comes to our bed and snuggles under the covers for a while. But usually only lasts about 15 minutes before she is suffocating under the blankets. Then she wants down off the bed. I have to lower her down. It's too high for her to jump without hurting herself. Finally she gets back in her bed and I lay there. I turn over and get comfortable. A couple of minutes later I readjust. Then I am thinking, hmmm did I pay that bill for Direct tv? Then another thought pops into my mind, before you know it an hour or more has passed and Chloe is sound asleep as is my hubby and I am wide awake. So I get up and turn on the computer. I take care of any bills that need to be paid and read up on my blogs that I follow and any email that's accumulated. I read various things I usually check on and finally after a couple of hours, I start to feel sleepy. So I recline my chair since now Chloe is beside me sleeping. I shut the light out and just start to fade away when Molly our oldest cat starts poking around behind me in the window and then she goes to the back door off the kitchen and starts meowing to go out (and she's an indoor cat). I yell at her to shut up and that does no good. I am in and out of fitful sleep for the next half hour and then I finally give up and turn on the tv. I start to watch the news and realize it is suddenly quiet in the house. I am the only one awake. I really need to go sleep in our motorhome on mornings like this so nobody disturbs me. Only it's so cold out there. There is something to be said for having no pets. But I love them, even though they drive me nuts sometimes.
