Highly effective too!]
Or, you know... Whining and pawing at the closet door, then when Mommy or Smeat-giver wake up and throw a pillow at them...they jump up on the bed and whine some more until they achieve some chin scratches. Of course, this is followed by the master of the household laying JUST out of arms reach and continues to whine.
Then they get the boot.
Kitties are great.
