This is pretty normal behaviour for cats to hunt. It may happen that he/she will sometimes eat a bug. Most of the time, it can do no harm. A regular fly, worm, moth, butterfly, ladybug or spider, is no problem for cats. These insects are not poisonous and the cat will have no problem digesting it. but sometimes you can’t even identify the bug.
I am Bonty and I am 21 year old female. I was born in a small town, somewhere behind a shop. My mother told me that just before we were born, a lady who worked at one of the shops saw her, and started to feed her. Two weeks after that we were born. I can’t remember much, only that the lady took me to her home after six weeks.
I met the other cats in the family. In the beginning they did not like me very much, especially the Matriarch, Schampi. She ignored me for a long time, swiping me in the face if my human mothers did not watch. But luckily after a while we became good friends. I know she was the Matriarch. The second in command Silky, a black and white female never liked me very much but with the sweetest guy, Seun , I became very good friends. He had another name but most of the time he was called Seun. And that is where my journey started with the two ladies whom I love and adore. Join my 21 year old journey of laughter,joy,pain,happiness,sadness and adventure .
. We first lived in the country, a small mining town in a house with a swimming pool and a big garden. A big garden with lots of insects and moths to chase. And snails.
My big brother, as I called Seun, loved chasing the snails, getting my Moms very upset. My mom Ally had read somewhere that if you put beer out in your garden, the snails will come and drink it, and die. I do not know what my brother was thinking. He started drinking the beer out of the saucers that was being put out for the snails. I went up to him, cautioning him that this golden fluid is not fit for feline consumption, but he ignored me, licking every drop of the saucer. I ran into the house, looking for my mom’s and Scampi to tell them about Seun and what he was busy doing. They were in the swimming pool, Scampi and Silky watching them. I went up to Scampi telling her what happened. She told me to let it be, he will bear the consequences of his acts. So I also sat down watching…..
