Four year study reveals cats' eating habits.
It only took four years to do this study and I'm not sure they are finished. They just discovered that cats eat more in the winter and less during summer.

They ate about 15% less during summer, apparently because they tend to rest more. Sounds pretty complicated, eh?
How to Help Animals
Always remember to check with your local shelter
to see what they need. Your donation will go directly
to the animals, in sharp contrast to some of the large
national groups, whose donation income goes toward
large administrative salaries and other expenses, not
necessarily for animals.
