My cat, Shen, is 18, and he is my boss. All of this is so completely true. The Shen-alarm wakes me up every morning between 530 and 730 for his food. (depends on how hard HE tied it on the night before. He hates it when I have company… especially romantic company. He has been known to jump on the backs of men I am intimate with… (but if I lock him out of the room, he does the siamese death howl until he is let in, so its a trade off!!!) He has to drink my bathwater while I am in it… I am his favourite teabag… its crazy! He is a monster… but I love him!
