Babysitting Rocky

I wonder if any of my students noticed how exhausted I was today! You see, I am babysitting a cat for a friend of mine. The cat is totally adorable, but he is kind of nocturnal. He was up all last night, running around and making funny noises. His favourite noise is "mrrrrrr mrrrrr". Sometimes he just goes "meOW MEoooow". Last night, one of his preferred games was to play "attack the toes". Everytime my toes stuck out from the sheets on my bed, the cat would pounce on them and try to chew them. After this happened about ten times, I tried putting the cat outside of my bedroom and closing the door, but that just started up a slow wailing sound "mmmmmeeeeeeeeooooooooooowwwww" until I let him back into the room. He was good for a while then, but I woke up in the middle of the night to find two eyes glowing 1 cm in front of mine. It freaked me out, and when I freaked out, the cat freaked out and jumped on my head to escape. Anyway, I woke up this morning exhausted to find the cat sleeping peacefully on a pile of my clean laundry. I hope he is enjoying his nice relaxing day at home so that he can stay up all night again attacking my toes and jumping on my head.

Happy Birthday :)!!
Many years ago, I also had a cat and his favourite game was exactly the one you mentioned!!!! I remember my first nights with that cat were terrible - I was even afraid to go to bed because my kitty had really sharp nails, unfortunatelly :(
He also would like to jump out of some secret place in the dark hallway on someone's "walking legs". I just hated that!!!

And ohh no!! Cat on the clean laundry!!! I hope he's trained and knows where the litter box is :)

I think the cat has liked you too much. As you are not at home in the morning, it doesn't sleep in the night. It just wants to play with you in your free time.
