Saved from a virus-crippled K800. I think I'll get my mallet. (No! For the phone not for the bedbug!)

BLACKIE 22July1992 to 02July2013. A great cat and a much loved little pal.

He insisted on moving in 4 years ago (he was 11 then) and has run the place to suit his own exacting requirements.

Coming back to this, I have to say it was wonderful to wake up this morning with two similarly coloured inhabitants on my bed this morning. The feeling was so good that it very nearly compensated for their waking me up periodically through the night!

You have two of these monsters? Presumably they're either related or you have a peacekeeping force deployed. Mine won't let anyone share "his" space without a great deal of negotiation (noisy and threatening - I am not spared the treatment). But the most effective alarm clock I ever had passed away 8 years ago. He was the most charming handsome Birman (one of two brothers that lived here) and would insert just one claw up a human nostril with clinical precision.

Your old alarm clock sounds a little radical. These two are mother and son. Not actually mine, they belong to my parents who live close by. Misha (the mother) believes my flat to be an extension of her domain. When her regular human (Mum) does something she disapproves of (not feeding her enough, not giving her the fuss or the quiet she thinks she needs or cleaning the house, for example) she will yowl outside my door until I let her in. Tarka her son is also black but four times her size and ten times as stupid. He only visits when my folks are away (as they are now). It's obvious from her behaviour that Misha is perfectly happy - possibly even happier - away from Tarka. It's equally obvious that Tarka hates it when Misha's not around.

It's interesting to read the words 'charming' and 'claw up a human nostril' in the same sentence. If Misha wants me to get up early - 4am for example - she simply sits by my head and purrs loudly. It works just as well.
