    Default Our morning routine

    When I wake up, once I feel read for it, I just say "Goodmorning Banjo" and she will come and snuggle up to me for cuddles. Then the cat will join in. Not for smooching, but to attack the dog's wagging tail. Which makes me laugh. And the more I laugh, the more the dog wags her tail and the more frenzied the cat attacks it. Most of the time Banjo will ignore her. When the cat digs her nails or teeth in too much, she will just give her a pretend nip and go back to ignoring her.

    Then I get up to get my coffee and feed the cat (I once left the kitchen without feeding her at this point and she ran after me and hung onto my ankle). Now the dog is lying on my feet with the cat snuggled up against her belly purring madly. This was after Banjo cleaned the cat's face to lick off any leftover cat food.

    Banjo would get on with most cats. But this cat is very rapidly becoming a foster failure. I don't think I have the heart to rehome her anymore. She'd be fine adapting to new humans. It's the dog that she would miss like mad.

    Mine starts at about 3am
    1. Wake up to cat meowing loudly, wanting to go out.
    2. Open window slightly so I don't have to get out of bed. Tell cat to '**** off then'
    3. Go back to sleep
    4. Half an hour later (3.30am) wake up to dog pawing the bed and my face.
    5. Open window further for dog to climb out as I am not getting out of bed
    6. Fall back to sleep.
    7. Wake to alarm at 6.15
    8. Put on undies and shorts, put bra on under pj top, ignore hair looking like a birds nest and the taste of sleep in my mouth and take dog to beach

    Then I get home, get ready for work and leave for work at 8

    1. 5am wake up because the dog decides that it is too lonely in his bed and that he wants under our duvet
    2. 5.20 wake up again because dog decides that it is too bloody hot under the duvet and a lonely bed is better than this effing sauna
    3. 6am waking up a third time because OH's alarm goes off (luckily he would never expect me to get up for him to make coffee!!)
    4. 6.30 official wake up call when OH leaves and kisses me good bye - I'm supposed to get up now
    5. fast asleep with dog back under the duvet by 6.33am
    6. 7am it's too bloody hot under the duvet and the dog snores like hell so I give up and make coffee
    7. 9am dog still under the duvet, snoring like a truck driver
    8. 9.30am I have already been working for about 2 hours on my computer when the dog is finally ready for his walk

    He is definitely my dog - not a morning person

    Well, I have no scheduled wake up at the moment, I am loving the sleep ins, until my girls head back to school in a week,

    but usually I wake up, go to the loo and come back to bed with my fur son in my spot...push him out of the way , slip back into my spot and have him either sit on top of me or bf or squeeze (as he gets bigger lol) under the bed!

    Haha, Banjo often takes my spot when I go out of the room for a minute. But all I have to do is click my fingers and she'll move. She is very aware of the things I am not willing to share: mainly my spot in the bed, my food and my uninterrupted sleep! She has also learnt quickly not to bother me too much before I've had my first cuppa. My old dog knew this too.

    Yes dogs seem to know what they can and can't do in our space
