Feline alarm clock

Our feline roommate is trained to respond to the sound of the lid being removed from a pop-top can of cat food. She will meow incessantly until fed.

This clock mechanism loads a fresh can into the breech every time you set the alarm. At the chosen time, a hook pulls the tab on the can.

This wakes the cat, who begins meowing piteously, which will not stop meowing until you rise and feed. No snooze button function.

       Are you trying to tell me that this is a real dog of an idea, and it won't get very fur ?

       Snooze button function:
--------------
As button is depressed a large anvil is released from it's suspension cables next to the can-opening apparatus.

       I'm going to have to clean that up, then re-load the anvil ?

       Where has that trekkie trekked off to, anyways? Someplace no one's gone before?

       //Our feline roommate is trained//   

       This is your first mistake. Assuming you can train a cat.   

       This is fully baked in the [hazel][jonthegeologist] household. Pete and Dud are very good at waking me up by sitting on my head and purring. Somehow (and rather annoyingly) [jtg] seems to be able to pretend to be asleep better than me so it's always me that gets up and feeds them.

       //Somehow [jtg] seems to be able to pretend to be asleep//   

       It's all about "Who wants it more!". You feel that feeding the cats is of higher priority than another 5 minutes in bed. [jtg] knows differently...

       We already got two of these. They seem to be permanently set for 4:30 AM though, and we haven't figured out how to change it yet.
