Caturday 7

Posted on Saturday, November 12th, 2016

Dave!My cats are not adapting well to the end of Daylight Saving Time.

Jake and Jenny have an internal clock that is eerily accurate. Plus or minus ten minutes, they will let you know when it's feeding time. So when you change a clock that conflicts with their internal timing, they just don't give a shit. Which means now they are wanting food at 6am instead of 7am and 5pm instead of 6pm. This despite my best efforts to gradually shift them an hour later.

My refusal to give in to their demands (as logical as they may be) has resulted in acts of civil disobedience.

And outright theft.

This morning, after having the cats hop on my bed at 6:05 wondering why the hell I haven't fed them yet, I came downstairs to see this...

The cats have been in the pantry...

One of the cats (I KNOW IT WAS YOU, JAKE!!!) went into the kitchen where they know they're not supposed to be, opened the cupboard where they know the cat food is kept, then dragged out a bag of cat treats they know they're not supposed to have, and ultimately had to give up because they apparently don't know you need opposable thumbs to open the zipper lock.

Let's go to the security cameras, shall we?

I KNEW IT WAS YOU, JAKE!

I cut out the five minutes he spent rummaging around in the cupboard. Note how Jenny is being a good girl by staying out of the kitchen and observing from afar. She could have come up tattled on her brother, but I'm rather glad she didn't seeing as how the attempted theft took place at midnight.

Well, what can you do?

Because cats.

I tell you what... if President Obama wants to do something great before leaving office that would help unify the country... he could make the next Daylight Savings Time be permanent. No more dicking with the clocks while we have the Trump Administration dicking with our freedoms.

Just a thought.

If nothing else, he'd have the gratitude of pet owners from sea to shining sea.

    Basil (the cat) was the same – yelping outside the door to the bedroom demanding to be fed. Considering he’s normally early for food anyway – his post clock change was about 4am.
