    We used to have a battery powered alarm clock that gave a little tick a second or two before it started ringing. Fledermaus several times woke up, late for school, to find the alarm clock on the floor with the battery knocked out. She figured she must have knocked it over fumbling around half asleep, and then fallen back asleep.

    One morning she woke up before the alarm and was lying quietly in bed.

    The alarm clock gave its ‘click’.

    The cat got up from where it was snuggling with her, batted the clock onto the floor, and settled down to continue snuggling.

    We got a new alarm clock soon after.Report
