I have cat that wakes me.
At night when she wants a pet
She determines when it's time.

Why does she choose the time?
I'd like that time to be chosen by me.
When I have to pet.

A cat that determines when it's time to pet.
I think she thinks she owns me.
I think she owns everyone's time.

She does own me cause I pet her on her time.

    Very true. I think a few times is all it takes, and they never get broke of it.
