How come Storm can do this so easily?

When I wake up for work most mornings at 2:00am I’ll be a blathering mess for the first 30 minutes as I attempt to transition from asleep to awake.  Just think of a stroke victim stumbling around the house with a bit of dribble coming out of their mouth while preparing breakfast. Yep, that’s me.

However Storm will see the door open and wake up straight away as soon as I walk out. It seems he can go from completely asleep to completely awake in less than one second. It’s distressing for me because he throws me a tennis ball but I’m still so comatosed I start eating it, thinking he passed me a delicious apple.

What’s his secret to waking up so easily?
