She’s Gotta Have It

Posted on Thursday, October 3rd, 2019

Dave!It is easier to set my Alexa alarm to 7:04am than to reset the clock on the cat auto-feeder which has been gaining time and drifting a little bit later and later every day. So that's what I did last night. There's no sense messing around with the feeder until stupid Daylight Saving Time ends on November 3rd.

This morning Jenny was NOT having it.

At 7am ON THE DOT she was on my bed meowing her head off wanting breakfast and was very cross indeed that Alexa hadn't chimed in on that. Can you imagine what my life will be like in November when I have to set the clocks back and she has to wait ONE HOUR?!? No extra hour in bed for me... I can guarantee that. Actually it will be two weeks of no sleeping in, because I change their clock in 15 minute increments over time until they are off DST. Apparently it helps them adjust easier...

Jenny laying on my bed forelorned with a paw and claws out while waiting for the Alexa alarm as I scratch her belly.

In other news... I was very nervous testing my blood sugar this morning. After all the potato salad I ate last night... and the huge bowl I had just before bed at 1am... I was sure it would hit 300. But nope! My spleen totally had my back and was a chipper 117 this morning. IT'S A POTATO SALAD MIRACLE!

Not a bad way to start my Thursday.

I am celebrating by having a bowl of potato salad for breakfast.

    I still can’t bring myself to get any of those Alexas or Dots. The amazon overlords! I mean, Amazon already seems to have my bank account and all my books, so I’m holding out.

    I’m not looking forward to the time change either because of the pets. Without their freaking out, it used to be the BEST time change – more sleep! Kids and cats change everything. 🙂

    Can’t you have the auto feeder feed them at 6, after the daylight savings time switch. No point in forcing daylight savings time on kitties. It’s bad enough it’s inflicted upon us.

    Have you tried setting a bowl of very bland, weight control formula, type cat food out so if they are that darn hungry they’ll eat it? But it’s to bland and boring to eat otherwise? Maybe even a weight control dog food, as I believe that’s less flavored?

    I don’t know much about feeding animals on a schedule. As every animal I’ve ever had has had unlimited access to food. I don’t want them to ever feel that hungry.
