    LOL - that is HILARIOUS! Our cats do this to my husband. They used to try to wake me up like that, but I am such a sound sleeper that they gave up and moved on to my hubby.

    i would throw that cat in to a wood chipper... i dont have wood chipper or know anyone who does. anything that i could throw the thing in to and have it come out in 4 or more pieces and dead or near death would work. so many ideas, the only good thing about all the moronic cat videos/pics that show up on here is imagining ways to kill them.

    the only thing good about jebler`s comments is imagining ways to kill him....

    now onto the vid.
    i liked it, i like cats since dogs always seemed so stupidly attached and they depend on you for everything, while cats kind of know they can live on their own but know w/ u its better, still have to earn their affection tho

    How totaly, awesomely adorable!!!

    It`s so true! I can really relate to that. My cat does the same thing every morning... Minus the baseball bat.

    It`s amazing how the maker of this film captured the true essence of a housecat in the wee hours of the morning!!

    Am I the only person in history who`s cat does not wake them up on a regular basis??? my cat likes too sleep as much as I do. My problem is getting asleep because 2 am is when she`s bugging me to pet her and feed her and crap. I`ll wake up around noon after staying up all night and she is right next to me sound asleep.

    But still, this video is awesome! reminds me of my friends cat! All it wants is food!

    I have to admit, that was both funny AND the cat was cute.

    My cat does the same thing to me every morning at 5:30 or so. If I had a baseball bat in the room I wouldn`t be surprised if he used it :[.

    My cat has an alarming tendency to sleep on my face. I wake up in the middle of the night with my nose and mouth full of fur.

    I loved how they managed to get so many facial expressions out of a very simple drawing. It was adorable.

    GREAT clip!! That`s my cat to a tea, but when the baseball bat comes out, thats when she usually gets on my headboard adn knocks my water glass and alarm clock on my head to get me up. Half the time its just to see me get up!!!!

    If my cat did that, I`d throw it against the wall, get out of bed, pick it up again--this time by its tail, and throw it out the window as hard as humanly possible, pick up a piece of broken glass, run after it, slit its throat with a piece of broken glass, slam it down on the ground on the middle of a street and stomp on it until it`s entirely flat.

    Not really--I wouldn`t do something like that, my cat does that now and them. It will sleep on my face with it`s claws out after scratching the fu­ck out of my covers and the carpet. I just simply turned around, then it left.

    When it is a 25 pound bangel cat, it doesn`t need a baseball bat.
