The first thing I do is call out "Twinkles!" (my cat) because:
- I want to know she's ok.
- I want to be with her.
- It is best to start the day with something good, and she is something good. :)
*Now that it is winter, every time I wake up, I discover she is sleeping on me...she weighs 4.5 kg which is too heavy for me...so me saying "Twinkles!" first thing when I wake up stays the same, but here it's in a different tone followed by trying to get her off me. :)
