In the United States, daylight savings time forces everyone to move their clocks one hour back (in the fall) and one hour ahead (in the spring). The rationale behind daylight savings time is to allow most human activity to occur during the day when the sun is out, thereby saving electricity.
The problem with daylight savings time is that it messes with people’s sleep cycle. Even worse, it also messes with the sleep cycle of cats. Apparently cats all over the country weren’t too happy about losing an hour of sleep this past weekend.
