Usually his claws are out but not enough to scratch me. I don't feel like that is his intention. He doesn't get too far before I wake up.
I am a mouth breather at night (better a mouth breather by night than by day...)
Is he trying to wake me up?
Or is he checking for breathing?
Or is he saying my breath stinks?
Or "stop breathing on me"?
He is 5 years old. The Alpha mammal in the house (over all humans and pets). He also still "makes biscuits" (his name is...Mr Biscuits). Other than that he is a pretty typical extremely lazy cat .
Has this happened to anyone else?
