It’s me Nubia here today! To discuss the habit of waking up the humans early in the morning (and to blackmail my brothers of course). And I am certain that they are not the only ones doing this. 😮
Oliver: What! Me? I never do that…
Nubia: The pet camera says overwise… it spotted you at 3.59 am walking into the bed room before there was a grumbling noise from the humans!
Oliver: Bah! Bloody spying technology. :/
Nubia: Buy why is it that my fellow felines (and brothers!!!) decide to poke their humans toes or lovingly nibble on their noses (Rennie does that!!!) early in the morning?
Nubia: Do they not realise that 4am is part of our humans REM sleep… the most important part of sleeping for them to be refreshed in the morning!
Nubia: Sadly we are not the only ones with this problem and many people simply accept it as part of the deal of looking after us and having our loving companionship around. 😉
Oliver: Sister so why do we do that to our humans?
Nubia: That’s simple… our cousins out in the wild world of the outdoors have to make as many as 100 hunting attempts to catch the 8-13 small prey a day they need to survive. (See us house cats are very spoiled! Probably why we decided to train the humans so well. 😉 ) And of course we still have this same hunting instinct that is not just limited to daytime. Our bodies are basically designed to have a drive to hunt and eat small meals all day and all night. With the lack of mice and birds roaming our
house kingdom in the wee hours of the night, there is only one thing we can…. “hunt” our humans! 😀
Oliver: Is there a way to solve this?
Nubia: Of course there is!
Oliver: Like allowing me to wake up the human properly to play with me and the feather toy? D:
Nubia: No…. that would make things WORSE! Could you imagine how irate our humans would be if they had to get up and play with you at 4 am? :O
Oliver: Ok maybe not…
Nubia: But that’s fine because I’ve got the purrfect solution to the problem! See there are ways to support your felines natural hunting instinct. You can use a feeding device to hide food around your house at night. Now your feline companion can spend the night the way nature intended for a cat – hunting, catching and playing with small portions of food before eating them and you get to spend the night the way nature intended for humans – sleeping!
Oliver: Yes!!! That means I get LOADS of food!
Nubia: Only if you work for it! Remember portion control is key.
Nubia: Doc and Phoebe’s Feeder is the first and only complete indoor hunting system for cats. It was designed to recreate the natural Seeking Circuit of us feline hunters and fulfill our natural instincts. It is safe, clean, easy to use.
