According to a recent study of around 9,000 British pets by pet insurer Animal Friends, the number of  cats diagnosed with diabetes has skyrocketed by  1,161 percent over the past five years.

(The fact is people who feed cats human food are shortening their lives. In addition more than half of the cats kept indoors are dangerously overweight.

I’ve never understood the idea of an indoor cat. Spooky and Moose would never have stood for it.)
