Alarms? Don't ask! When we are setting off on 'an adventure' necessitating an alarm clock, I always wake up before the alarm. However, I would never trust this 100%, in case I failed and missed a flight, so I always set a 'just in case alarm'.
Now, the cat's mother will set an alarm - which is good. However, she then has to have a 'lie-in' for a half hour or so.
It is for this reason that we then end up tear-arsing down the motorway to the airport or whatever.
Possible fix. Let her do things at her speed and dodge the flight. Have an alternate plan in place for something you want to do for when it unfortunately *cough* goes sideways due to her pissing about.
She might get her shit in one sock after the fourth or fifth time it happens.
