One of the Mysteries of the Universe

Why is it that my cat can sleep at the foot of my bed for hours, stay settled during the time I crawl into bed and read, but the moment I shut off the light and snuggle down to sleep she decides it's the perfect time for a bath?

Breeann is not a quiet bather. She snuffles and snorts and licks and squirms. I shoved her with my foot several times, earning a pounce or two and hoped that I'd distracted her from her task.

No such luck.

And, dear readers, this happens every blasted night. I don't suppose it would be so bad if I didn't get up at the crack of dawn, but I need every minute of sleep. And it doesn't matter what time I go to bed.

Maybe she likes the privacy that the darkness gives her?

Cats. (...I say in disgust and head off to the kitchen for another cup of coffee...)

Ah yes. I have nocturnal cat issues too. I have two, one a teenager. as soon as I go to bed the two of them are ripping around the place, always ending up under my bed wrestling. Every night. No, they couldn't do this when I'm at work.

Hows the NaNo coming?
