I gave in.
You may recall that we recently made the decision to leave our Maxx’s automatic feeder on Central Standard Time so that he didn’t have to make the ridiculous adjustment we humans must. (Click here to read it if you missed it.) We made that decision based on the assumption that he could continue to eat when his biological clock told him it was feeding time.
It seemed like a good idea at the time, but it turned out that he keys more on what we are doing than what the clock is saying. He would “forget” to eat at some of the times his feeder was putting groceries in the bowl, but he would stand on my bathroom vanity and look at me when I got dressed in the mornings, because he associated that activity with food appearing in his bowl.
Just add one more clock to adjust this Fall when we “fall back.”
See you next week, Dr. Randolph.
