On Cats and Annoyances

Outside my bedroom window is the roof of the house. Just off the edge of the roof is a tree.

My cat Galahad likes to climb the tree, get on the roof, and miaow at the window.

At five o’clock in the morning.

He’s been doing this for about a week now.

He’ll miaow. He’ll whine. He’ll even rattle the screen.

There are things in the world I do not like to see. Five o’clock in the morning is one of those things.

I try to ignore him. I don’t get out of bed. He keeps at the screen, though. For an hour, even.
