Speechless Sunday - Time Change Even Stresses Our Fur Babies

I shared earlier, the stress of having to turn back our clocks in the fall (and forward in the spring) and of course, those, among others, are all human issues! With the early evening darkness, the fur babies experience a bit of confusion as well. 

 

Time Change Woes

When I didn't grab Duke's bowl to feed him, he popped in his bed...not sure if it was time for bed or dinner or neither! Barney had his moments too and Charlotte slept all day. Ahh, the woes of time change!

Enjoy your week ahead...

We think they go by the sky - dark or light - when it's dinner time for them. Duke though, will eat any time of the day or night, if you feed him, Roy Kelley!

It really does mess with our internal clocks, doesn't it, George Souto?! I SO wish they'd do away with it - as Endre says, it's a worthless exercise!

My kitty didn't seem to mind but, she's been eating very little lately - her thyroid is still not regulated so, that is effecting her appetite. So, the boys were doing the whining with the time change and this time, it wasn't Charlotte!

Debe - Your love overflows with passion for all creatures on earth. I love that you think so much of your fur babies and that no matter how busy you are, you always make time for all God's creatures.

Hi Debe, I agree with you-- the time change really does mess with the flow of our schedule.

Oh, our fur babies are so much a part of our lives, Patricia Feager, MBA, CRS, GRI,MRP - I can' t imagine not having a fur baby here to worry about! 

Right now, I'm terribly worried about my 17-year old kitty - she's not doing very well. 😢

Me too, Rebecca Gaujot, Realtor® - I love that phrase - 'worthless exercise.' It sums this exercise up quite well!

I think we've finally gotten Duke back on the right time but, boy, I hate taking them out in the dark in the morning now! LOL

Debe - It is so hard to see our pets suffering. Yet, isn't it amazing that even when they are not well, that unconditional love keeps flowing back to the hands that feed and care for them. Are you referring to Charlotte? Your heart must be aching. I really do believe they are put on this earth for reasons even humans will never understand. Thank God for loving pet owners and Veterinarians too.

Yes, my baby girl is not doing well. She and Ray have this cute little 'bond' and the week before I brought him home from the hospital, I had to take her to the vet a couple of times. I told them they had to do whatever it took to keep her alive until the next week. They did and we were JUST commenting about how well she was doing on Sunday. 

Now, she hasn't eaten this week and her thyroid levels just won't stabalize. It's impacting her kidney function and she's losing weight by the day. 

And, YES, thank God for vets - OMG, hers loves Charlotte like she's his own. We are so lucky to have found him...some 25 years ago!

Thank you for your thoughtful comment - I so appreciate it. 😘

At least twice a year I get riled up on how outdated this process is- but nothing changes- other than our clocks and I get thrown out of wack for about a week each time.
