Buddah and I have a new game; we're going to call it Timmy's Down The Well?, and while you can play it in a one story house, it works much better if you have stairs.

This is how it goes:

One kitty stays downstairs. The other kitty runs up the stairs as loud as he can, initialing making whatever person is upstairs (and in bed, it's best if they're in bed; it's doubly best if it's COLD for the person without any blankets covering them up) think a rousing game of Thundering Herd Of Elephants has begun. Once upstairs, the kitty stands at the bedroom door and meows a lot. It doesn't matter what you say ("Hey! Doofus! Shower already!") because all they hear is "Meow! Meow meow meow meow meow!"

Then run back out the top of the stairs, and repeat. The person will not follow, because the person is inherently lazy.

Now, the kitty downstairs must let out one pathetic sounding Meow. Like: meow?

Then the first kitty runs back into the bedroom, jumps up on the bed and gets in the person's face and says loudly MEOW MEOW MEOW MEOW MEOW MEOW!!!! and heads back towards the stairs.

Now, this is critical. This is when the kitty downstairs must wail. "Meeeooow. Meeeeeooooowwwww! MEEEEOOOOOWWWWWW!"

The person will now get out of bed, saying "Is something wrong? Is he hurt?" and will follow you as you RUN down the stairs.

When you're all downstairs, both kitties must meow. You will be laughing at your person, but they won't know it. Try not to high-five each other, otherwise the person will get mad.

Now, run into whatever room the crunchy treats are kept, because surely you will be given a few for your cleverness.

(Or not...the important thing is to get your person out of bed. If they fall for it and give you treats, that's just a bonus.)

This is great fun, and one of the only good things about there being another kitty in the house.
