Mama says she is puzzled and frustrated. And tired. She has asked me what is going on, and I just don’t know what to tell her.
For the past week, I’ve been getting her up really early. Like, before 4 a.m. Every morning.
I scratch on the closet door in the hall so that it rattles and makes a noise. A big noise. Mama calls out, “Stop, Connor.” Then I go and stand beside Mama and purr. Then I go back and rattle the door.
At first, she thought I was just hungry. She got up and fed me and the girls. But when she went back to bed, I started rattling the door again. So it’s not just hunger.
Papa has a hard time sleeping, so Mama just stays up with me after she feeds us. If she stays up for at least a while, with the light on, I settle down and seem content. I even let her lie down again to get a little more sleep.
I’m eating and playing and jumping and purring and having fun. Everything’s the same except I get Mama up early.
Mama is getting more writing done because she’s getting up so early. She does her back stretches, meditates, and then writes. Sounds like I’m helping her!
Mama says she’s not mad at me. She just wants to understand me.
She says she thinks I get lonely because the girls are usually sleeping then, but I’ve had enough of everyone sleeping and want some company.
But she wanted me to ask you what you thought. Does it sound like loneliness? Do you think I’m going through a phase?
