Post 1330: breakfast at 1:00 AM…

Daylight Savings Time change is a miserable time for me. The kitty boys want breakfast some time between 1:00 AM and 1:30 AM. In the Spring time change, then, they pester me to get up and feed them at a time my body still regards as between 12:00 midnight to 12:30 AM. More about this later….

Though I don’t get up that early to feed them, they come around to pester me till I give in. Dougy walks around and over me, swishing his tail on my face, kneading my shoulder. Andy just sits there by the bed, staring, staring, staring. Creepy! Then I give in and get up.

This will go on for a few weeks till we all adjust to the stupid change that doesn’t benefit us in any way.


Yesterday, Andy ate first and Dougy snoozed in the guest bedroom.

When the kitty boys don’t eat at the same time, the cat eating first tends to eat all of the kitty food, leaving none for his brother. Then I have to prepare a second meal as soon as the last-to-eat kitty finally makes his entrance. The first-to-eat kitty has to be discouraged from eating again so the last-to-eat kitty gets a meal. This is a common problem during the transition to Daylight Savings Time.

This morning, both kitties were in the kitchen waiting for me to wash their dishes so I could feed them. When I put the kitty food out, Andy held back while  Dougy pigged out on the two servings.

Things continue to be messed up! Andy must have eaten some dry food when it was stomach time to have kitty food. He eventually ate some wet food.

Makes no sense. Wouldn’t cats used to eating sometime between 1:00 AM and 1:30 AM during standard time be eating sometime between 2:00 AM and 2:30 AM after the change to Daylight Savings Time? I’m too tired to figure it out.
