I miss Melina getting me up. her method was sweet. she'd jump on the bed & creep quietly toward me. then she'd extend her paw which she'd gently brush against my face till I woke.
now I have birds who've made a nest in the courtyard outside my bedroom. they begin to chirp at abt the time of morning Melina woke me. the chirping is loud & constant enuf to get me out of bed.
