  • They eat them in the wild,along with reptiles(lizards,small snakes) and amphibians (frogs,salamanders) meat is meat to them. If rodents are scarce,they'll eat whatever animal is available

  • Are you making the maggots become flies argument?
    If that was so,my cat Dilly would be FILLED with worms. He eats every bug that wanders in

  • Tapeworms and flies are two different species.

  • cats most commonly get tape worms from fleas ingesting, but parasites are just that, parasites. all they need is the proper host/climate for their current stage of life and they will flourish.

  • I know about the fleas but surely it cannot be good to eat bugs for a cat? Or maybe it's protein? Ick...thanks ladies.
