 The New York Times recently posted an article on hyperthyroid cats

It says that hyperthyroidism in cats only became a thing after the 1970s and might be related to some chemical common in our homes that is disrupting their endocrine systems. 

It further raises the question of whether the cats are "canaries in a coal mine" and eventually these same chemicals will disrupt human endocrine systems. 

There is a profile of a New York City veterinarian who specializes in treating hyperthyroidism in cats. 

I am posting this link to see if this community is still active; it seems very quiet but it's hard to believe there is not strong interest in cats on Dreamwidth. I was thinking of starting another cats community but did not want to reinvent the wheel nor divert people from an existing community. What does everyone think?
