The importance of a good night's sleep is well documented, but the way you wake up can be just as important.
While you could shell out for a designer alarm clock -- one that simulates a sunrise, or even one that stimulates orgasm -- the very best alarm clock is available for free through the ASPCA: a cat.
To demonstrate the benefits of a ‘cat alarm’ we have compiled the above video montage of these persistent but affectionate kitties as they get their owners up on the right side of the bed.
Disclaimer: Side effects may include sneezing, coughing, minor skin lacerations and cleaning up cat poop. But when you wake up to a fuzzy feline face, you know it’s going to be a good day!
