We study non-autonomous rational difference equations. Under the assumption of a periodic non-autonomous parameter, we show that a well known trichotomy result in the autonomous case is preserved in a certain sense which is made precise in the body of the text. In addition we discuss some questions regarding whether periodicity preserves or destroys boundedness.
