OK so the past week I have been getting up at strange hours of the night and have been barking at the front door. It's been 11pm, 1 am, 2am, 4am, etc. It wakes the hoomans up. Momma gets up tells me no one is there and then lets me out to go to the baffroom. I don't really have to go, but I do it anyway. The hoomans don't understand why I keep waking them up. Well we finally have a cause of my night time disruptions.
10:00 PM: Time for bed, I go outside to tinkle one last time. The kitties are put downstairs so that I don't chase them unsupervised, kitty door is closed. Momma and Dad go to bed.
1:00 AM: I barks at front door - Momma wakes up. She is grumpy.
1:03 AM: I goes outside and pees to make Momma feel better about getting out of bed.
1:05 AM: Momma goes back to bed, Dad is grumpy now too.
1:06 AM: Instead of sleeping on my couch I is scared so I climb into bed wif Momma and Dad.
1:07 AM: Momma grumbles that I is stealing the covers. We all go to sleep.
2:10 AM: We all wake up to a kitty meowing at the foot of the bed!
2:11 AM: HBO words are used as Momma scoops up Vader and realises that he has escaped the downstairs to wake us all up.
Evidently recycled kitty brother Vader has discovered how to open doors! Since we have long handles instead of door nobs he has learned to reach up and pull the handle down. It takes him a few tries and we have witnesses him doing it. So, the pulling of the door handle made me think that there was someone at the door. When it fact it was Vader trying to escape his nighttime confines. The easy solution is the lock the door so that he can't open it. I just can't believe he's been tricking me into thinking someone is at the door knocking at night. Does this mean he is smarter than me? I sure hope not. I've gots some sleep to catch up on.
