Why My Cats Like Daylight Saving and When March Roars in Like a Lion!

Peanut is more like a lamb than a lion in personality, but she gives it her all for this blog post!

Considering we’re not even two weeks into March yet and the northeast has already been hit with flooding, severe winds, brutal temperatures, and now a major snowstorm, this month has no doubt roared in as a lion. We’ve had chilly temperatures here in Florida, ranging from 50 – 70 degrees and when you’re a cat, that can mean only one thing:

It’s window whiffing season!!

Will today be our lucky day?

I don’t know about your house, but at ours, there’s not much better than an open window that allows for the intoxicating smells of the outdoors to come wafting indoors! As soon as the cats hear the window being opened, they are drawn to it like a magnet and if they’re lucky, they might happen upon a visiting bird or squirrel!

Score! It is our lucky day!! A squirrel sighting!

I love being able to open the windows because cats can easily get bored of the same old, same old routine, especially if they’ve been cooped up all winter with no open windows. If it’s safe for you to open your windows, it’s a great way to provide some stimulation and enrichment for your cat, as they are wild by nature and this gives them a wonderful opportunity to take in all the sights and smells around them.

And don’t forget, it’s Daylight Saving today, so our clocks need to be set one hour ahead, which means more time for window whiffing! Whoo Hoo! Have a great Sunday everyone and stay safe and warm! Hopefully, our friend the lamb will be here sooner than later!

More sunlight equals more window whiffing! Whoo Hoo indeed!

    I sure wish we could have open windows again but not with Sister Gracie’s bad asthma, it knocks her for a loop. Have a fun day Sunday everyone!

    It is like that here too but now we have a new catio and everyone gets to smell the outdoors from the catio.

  3. More window time is always good!

    All my cats are sleepy today just like me 🙂

  5. my cats LOVE when I open the windows!! They get screen indents in their noses!

  6. With our strange weather I just stays in bed most of the time, and occasionally look out the window and laugh at the birds as I can go out if I want to whereas they have to be out. But as days draw out I do get to have a few more trips out. The old adage is very true it seems, and our calm start to winter here in UK has ended up a bitter nightmare….

  7. the only thing Cody likes about daylight saving time is getting fed earlier and I wish they would just leave it all alone.

    Yeah, there are window whiffers here, too, as well as squirrels and a lot of other wonderful and not-so-wonderful creatures! We’re lucky to have a LOT of windows here, and two of them have window perches. Because, you know, CATS. 😉 We’re not DST fans, but there you go.

  9. No opened windows here. It’s still too cold! At least we’re not getting the weather the east coast is getting.

  10. March roared in here also. We had the Beast from the East on the first bringing wind gusts of 90mph and feels like temperatures of 10F. Then 2 days later storm Emma arrived bringing her snow. We are not used to such cold temperatures here, and we rarely get snow. We are back to normal now with torrential rain.
    Flynn taught me well and I hibernated through the worst of the weather, and never put a foot outside the door for 3 days.
