When my alarm went off this morning, I pretended I didn't hear it. Then, I trudged to the bathroom and back to the bedroom, to grab shoes and socks. I got my socks on. Then, Stinky (who has taken to sharing the pillow with me) got up and stood up on my shoulder and rubbed her head on my head and I fell over and went back to sleep. A bit later, when Phenom got up he asked "aren't going for your walk?"
I stuck a foot in the air and said "I tried. I got my socks on but then Stinky held me down."
Then there was some muttering about how blaming the cat wouldn't stand up in a court of law.
