2 AM Last Night

Why do we have Daylight Saving Time? At 2 a.m. last night, we turned our clocks forward one hour, marking the beginning of Daylight Saving Time (DST). Switching over to daylight saving time, and losing one hour of sleep, raised the risk of having a heart attack the following Monday by 25 percent, compared to other Mondays during the year, according to a new U.S. study. So, why does it still continue?


Try convincing your cat that it’s bedtime, when he can see the evening sun streaming through the window. Turning out the light is a key part of going to sleep. Pulling down the blackout shades just isn’t the same thing. I hate… I hate… I *hate* DST!

  1. She’s a ……… cat , get up same like humans she wants some one to slab and pull down her face, to say mewoooo, or someone to pull her from her tail

  2. Its an outdated tradition that needs to be abolished! In protest we shall tip over the water bowl and let the kibble fall were they may. 🙂

  3. We’ve already gone through the switch to DST in the US. I was tired for three days. Not a fan either, Herman, but at least it hails spring in all of its glory.

  4. We finish our daylight savings here in Melbourne next weekend..already the mornings are darker..some states in Australia refuse to have it…so we have different time zones from Perth and Queensland..i hated it when my kids were little..try getting them to bed when it is still light….arghhh 🙂 hugs Fozziemum

  5. Our DST started a couple of weeks ago. Mom likes it. As long as breakfast is no later than 8:30 a.m. and dinner at 6:30 p.m, we don’t care what’s going on outside. Hope you adapt quickly. Enjoy your easy. XO, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

  6. Oh dear Mr Bowie, I would suggest a little kitty cat eye mask like this one I wore on the way to Maui…LOL

    Or, think of it as an opportunity to be in the garden later!

  7. The whole thing messes my mind and body up for almost two weeks every spring and fall. I’m like pre-industrial man, I fall into the planet’s rhythm. I wish governments had the same respect for our bodies that they do for efficiency.

  8. Just when it was starting to be light when we got up we went to DST. Now it’s still dark and because of the weather it’s not any lighter in the evening, just clouds and more dark! It takes a lot to depress a cat but this did it.

  9. It’s all a conspiracy. When you’ve just adjusted to daylights savings time, it’ll be time to move the clocks back one hour to standard time.
