How Time Change Affects Your Cats

Daylight Savings Time officially ended at 2 AM today. (Don't forget to turn your clocks back an hour!) For most of us that means we get an extra hour of sleep and relaxation before starting the day. Did you know that pets can be affected by the time change as well?

Cats don't use watches, but they can tell when there is a change in their owner's behavior.

Much of a cat's behavior is linked to our schedules. Your cat might get up when you do and watch you prepare for the day. They might get used to eating at a particular time, or adjust other behaviors to yours. (One client of mine, a domestic shorthair named Bo, runs to the bathroom at the same time every morning so he can hang out while his owner showers. Aren't cats funny?)

Domestic cats rely on us for food, water, and companionship. Our schedules dictate when they get those things. When our schedules are disrupted it can cause changes in their behavior. An extra hour in bed for you might mean your cat wakes up at the same time wanting to play or to eat breakfast. Cats are very smart, and chances are if you're not up to feed or entertain them they will solve the problem for themselves!

Keep a close eye on your cat for any changes in their behavior after the time change. If they seem to be more anxious or irritable, try getting up an hour earlier and seeing if the behavior continues. Of course, you might get lucky and have a cat who will appreciate the extra hour of sleep, too. Don't forget to turn your clocks back!
