2:07 a.m. - Awake to Thor meowing.

2:10 a.m. - Let him in as instructed by vet.

2:11 a.m. - 2:34 a.m. - Alternately whisper, "shhh, lay down and go seepie" and "ow!" as fingers are licked and chewed.

2:40 a.m. - Fall asleep with purring sack of fur stretched out along side.

2:45 a.m.- Wake up to sound of glasses being knocked off bedside table.

2:45 a.m. - 2:50 a.m. Grope around under bed for glasses.

2:55 a.m. - Get thumped by a suspiciously well placed Jason elbow.

3:00 a.m. - Wonder if shaking just felt was an earthquake or Loki joining the party.

3:05 a.m. - Smile sleepily at Thor's attempt to use a "quiet" meow.

3:06 a.m. - Wonder if Thor's new meow sounds strangled. Begin to obsess that maybe he ate a spider and it bit his vocal cords on the way down and even now, his little throat is swelling shut and all this hand licking and biting is just a way for him to try to desparately get your attention as his oxygen levels plumment and you don't really want to wake up to a dead kitten, do you??

3:10 a.m. - Give up. Get up. Discover that what Thor wants is for you to lift his hind legs while he pretends to climb the wall and attack the attic door pull-string.

3:11 a.m. - Consider strangulating him yourself.

3:12 a.m. - Worry some more about his hoarse meow. Pick up the tape measure he knocked off the desk. Catch the calculator before it hits the ground.

3:15 a.m. - Feed the horde in attempt to make them go back to sleep.

3:20 a.m. - Make hot chocolate and peanut butter and jelly sandwich.

3:25 a.m. - Faciliate rise in blood pressure by reading on-line news.

3:30 a.m. - Let Thor up on lap. Allow self to be sucked in to forgiving him by the sonic boom level purrs and the cute squinchy eye face.

3:35 a.m. - Give up on sleep.

Sounds like my own night life, but on my end it's the kids, not kittens, who keep me awake...
