Is it Safe For Your Cat to Eat Bugs?

Saturday, July 19, 2014
posted by Jim Murphy

CAT BUGCats are natural predators so it is natural for him to eat bugs. When I let my cat Molly outside with me on our porch, she goes for all of the spiders that she can find. Don’t be alarmed if you see your kitty chowing down an insect. Most are harmless. If your cats eat a lot of them, he could wind up with a little gastrointestinal upset. Bugs with exoskeletons, like beetles can be rough on your cats gastrointestinal tract. He may vomit out the pieces instead of digesting them.

Some types of insects may be poisonous to your cat. He may experience severe intestinal problems after swallowing the bug or may have problems if they are bitten by the bug.  Figuring out which pests are safe and which ones are hazardous can be difficult. If you see a certain type of insect lurking around your basement, try to catch one and have an exterminator inspect it.
