Actually, a lot of ferals live on/supplement with insects. We don't have water bugs inside here, but I've seen them around, so the cats must be eating them.(BTW, just read that insects are the healthiest meat humans can eat, as they are low-fat and animal fat is hard on humans.) On Sat,

Lisa, You were lucky because 9 1/2 years is a long time for a FeLV cat, especially if he had it as a kitten. Most cats that had FeLV as a kitten don't live past 3 years. Many live less than a year. If you were giving him interferon then maybe that was it. I have heard of some that lived

Yum!  It's lunch time here.  So glad I'm a vegetarian and don't have to face a plate of meat after that tidbit of information.  But yes, cats do eat the whole animal and I won't get into the things that they have so generously given me after they caught a bird or lizard but they don't eat cows

That is especially true of my Harley, he will chase, catch and eat anything that moves. He was chasing a moth one night an it flew to the ceiling. He jumped and hit his head on the ceiling. I didn't see if he caught the moth, I was laughing at him. Had the funniest look on his face.
