Friday night at the movies

Every night at 10.30pm, I have to remind mum and dad to go to bed. I have a very strict routine and I expect them to follow it.

First, I tell dad it's time for bed. Then I stand on the cord for his mouse and his headphones on his computer, so they pull away from him. This encourages him to turn his computer off. Then I go and sit next to the coffee table, waiting to play the red dot game. I play this until I get tired and throw myself down on the ground. Then we must go upstairs, and that's where the excitement really begins.

My bestest friend Zimmie sent me Mr Mouse a while back. For a while he was my bodyguard but he didn't do a very good job so I changed his job description to "bedtime mouse". The following movie demonstrates what happens every single night at bed time.

Looks like a great routine to me, Huffle! You, Dad and Mr. Mouse having fun together.

I have a 10:30 bedtime too, but my Mom is a night owl. So, at 10:30 I asked to go out for last call, and then she knows. So she starts getting ready herself. But it takes her FOREVER! I swear some nights it is almost midnight before she comes in. Terrible!

Kisses,
Stella

Every night I'm using the computer with my mom, until bedtime. After, I'm guarding the house (someone needs to do the job, right?)

KILL IT KILL IT!!! Oh sorry, I got all carried away there.

Your ability to control the schedule of your humans is just one of the reasons why you are a coveted HULA member. Great job.

What a cute video! That looks like a lot of fun. Mr. Mousie makes a much better bedtime mousie than bodyguard.

Sweet Praline said...

Suka said...

hey Huffle Mawson,

You sure have your humans trained well! And what an exciting bedtime routine! But, what does Mr. Mouse think of his demotion? Being batted around like that must be tough after holding the illustrious position of your bodyguard! You look very cute on film, by the way.

You have your bedtime routine down to a science Huffle!

Kari said...

What an excellent bedtime routine.
Bet you're all ready to settle in for the night after all that play.

The Whiskeratti said...

That is a very good routine. Toby doesn't care about the night but he is very strict about early mornings!

Poppy Q said...

Huffle you have trained your dad well.

I usually go to bed at 7pm, and sometimes my mum is in bed before midnight. If it is coolish I go and lie on her legs, and pin her to the bed.

Cyber-sibes said...

No wonder woo want to go to bed! That looks like great fun. Kinda like when I play with my husky-head out in the yard, except that I do that in the mornings, I'm not a cat, and its not a mouse, but woo get the idea!

a-roos to yous,
jack a-roo

Madi and Mom said...

Mr. Mouse makes a better playing around on the bed guy than he does a bodyguard. Storm said something about that's more like ME, too... ha roo roo roo!
Play bows,
