And this is how it starts! On the cream leather chair, Spike will silently appear at the side of the sleeping "victim" and will usually begin the process of removing said victim by a soft lick somewhere near the neck. That is usually enough to elicit the opening of one sleepy eye. This is quickly followed up by a paw poke by Spike - which will typically dislodge the existing occupant, leaving a nicely warmed up sleeping spot.
When Spike wants the cat bed on the coffee table emptied for his use, he simply starts with a paw poke, followed by another..and then another..until the spot is his.
