Daylight Savings from a Cat's Perspective

KATIE:  So if we have to set our clocks forward this weekend, does that mean breakfast will be earlier or later? I don't know, this daylight savings stuff is really going to mess with my mealtime.

WAFFLES:  We have a daylight savings account? You mean like at the bank? With an ATM card and everything? 

KATIE:   Waffles, there's no savings account. No ATM card. Daylight savings means we're going to LOSE an hour this weekend. 

WAFFLES:  Uh oh. Did we bounce a check? Is that why we're losing an hour? Are we in trouble with the daylight savings bank?

KATIE:  Waffles, there is no bank. 

WAFFLES:  No bank??? Did someone rob it?  What about all our daylight savings? 

KATIE:  Waffles, now listen to me. Forget the banks. There's no such thing as a daylight savings bank–

WAFFLES:  But where does everybody keep all their daylight savings? What, are we supposed to keep it under our cat bed???

KATIE:  Waffles, daylight savings time is the practice of advancing clocks during summer months so that the evening daylight lasts longer. Don't you read Wikipedia?

WAFFLES:  Boss, it's not spring. There's still snow and stuff. This sounds fishy.

KATIE:  Whatever, Waffles. Every year on the second Sunday in March we turn our clocks forward by one hour. That's what we have to do this Saturday night.

WAFFLES:  But if we change all our clocks, how will we know what time it is? How will we know when it's time for dinner???

KATIE:  Oh, we'll know.

Don't Forget!
This Saturday night we'll be setting our clocks ahead by one hour. We sure hope Glogirly remembers to get up and make breakfast. Just because our clocks are messed up, that doesn't mean our breakfast should be messed up too.

Clearly whoever invented this daylight savings stuff was NOT a cat.


  1. Waffles is right. It is fishy... :)

  2. I am not down with losing an hour

  3. My human loves Daylight Savings Time and the extra hour of light! She's crazy, isn't she?

  4. Aww Waffles I guess you did try to understand.Love the photos of you and Katie. Hugs and Purrs.

  5. Our mommy wishes they would keep the time the same way all year long.....

  6. Not looking forward to losing an hour.

  7. Waffles, we wish you were right about the Daylight Savings Account. Z-girl said something about having to play with time for us so that we don't get ahead of ourselves. We didn't know that time could be played with or we'd be doing it constantly! Katie, are you going to sing a new song for your breakfast on Sunday??

  8. mom is not a fan either....she would like to see this idea go away. far far away

  9. Mum says she hides the hour in the clocks, that way she can find it easy when she needs it on the other end when the hour comes back.

    Plus it is Daylight SAVING time, no S on the end of Saving. So no savings to put in the bank for Waffles and Katie.

  10. We hate the time changes because breakfast and dinner don't come at the right times...

  11. I'm with Waffles - where do we keep all of this daylight savings?

  12. Very cute and entertaining reminder!
    We must say whoever borrows our hour and gives it back in the Fall, owes us interest, at least.

  13. Cats always score in the spring-ahead, because they get fed earlier! When it's spring-back, that's when there is no explaining to a hungry cat that it's not time yet! Ha!

  14. Don't worry Waffles, it confuses all of us just as much. I say we need to get rid of it

  15. We don't like it when the humans start messing with the time. Our meals get messed up too!

  16. On those 2 days a year that we have to play with the time we always get very confused.
    Just when we get used to one of them it's time to change again!
    Oh well, have a wonderful weekend...

  17. We don't like it either. It happens last Caturday of March here. Purrs

  18. We would like it to always be light in the evening for as long as possible. Is that too much to ask? Purrs from the Zee/Zoey gang!
