Falling Backward

Did you turn your clocks back an hour Sunday morning?

In case you haven’t already figured it out, dogs, cats and other pets don’t use clocks. Because of that, they tend to get confused when our human "spring forward" and "fall back" time changes disrupt their feeding schedules, or the times when you used to take them for their daily walks.

Bear with them. It may take your pets a week or so, but they’ll eventually get used to your new schedule until we spring forward again next year.

By the way, are there any interesting or humorous pet problems out there that were caused by the time change? My two manic felines, Tut and Newman, are still griping about getting fed an hour late on Sunday.
