Don't be surprised if your totally flips out this Sunday when we all fall back for Daylight Saving Time. Why do they do this?

The last time I checked, cats don't have to be to work at any particular time. For that matter, cats pretty much do what they want, when they want. So what's the problem? Why are cats affected by the time change?

What's wrong? Don't cats get enough rest with their usual 18 hours of sleep per day? Apparently not.

Canadae.com maintains a cat's routine is something which they would prefer to be written in stone. Events that alter their schedule can be a bit perplexing to some cats.

According to Catster.com, there is no need to panic. Any effects experienced by cats when they "fall back" are negligible. It would be one thing if your cat experienced a major time change like flying from Denver to Munich.

If your cat acts more strangely than usual this weekend, don't get too concerned. It's normal. Then again, given the defiant attitude displayed by most cats, who would even notice? Remember to fall back one hour this Sunday morning.
