i'll tell you about our morning routine but i'm not a morning person AT ALL so hubby does it all. he wakes up at 6, 6:30, opens the crate in the adjoining bedroom and heads to the kitchen to make coffee/feed cat.
Lola then slowly crawls out of the crate and jumps onto the bed and snuggles with me for about 30 minutes, we're both sawin logs. Until Ben comes in for the big scoop..he has to pick her dead weight body off the bed and carry her out of the bedroom, closing the door behind him (key step here).
They go out for morning business in the backyard, and then he attempts to feed her breakfast. She's not food motivated. NOW if Ben hadn't closed the bedroom door on the way out, Lola would be back up on 'big bed' before he could come back out of the kitchen with breakfast (grub). They might play fetch for 10 minutes.
I begrudgingly wake up and come out, possibly feed Lola breakfast. Maybe some 10-minute fetch? And we take turns showering for work. Lola likes to get hand fed some water out of the tub while it heats up for each shower. While i'm in the shower, Lola hops back up on big bed and waits for me to get out. Eventually, while I pull my hair up or put make up on, she ends up back sitting in the crate waiting for peanut butter in kong and some water in her hamster bottle. We say goodbyes, and head to work.
Lola has earned the right to roam the house, although as soon as PB is gone, she is back asleep on big bed until lunchtime when hubby bikes home for a (lola's) bathroom break and a bite.
