A Too-Fancy Feast

As noted by our friend over at Shifting Baselines, apparently Aussie cats are consuming more seafood than their humans.

Excuse me?

That's correct. The country's cats consume on average 13.7 kg of fish and seafood, which is 2.7 kg more than the average human Aussie. And the worst part? They are eating cat food made of wild forage fish -- think sardines, herrings and anchovies -- which are important in the diet of larger fish like tuna and swordfish.

I'm a dog person myself, though I can (somewhat) sympathize with cat lovers. But when popping a can of cat food means contributing to overfishing... come on guys.
