1. I am happy, with the info learned, give my Cat- named D.O.G. (De^o^gie) cricket’s,, and she enjoys the chase, of it all! Thank you,, Nita Ortiz

  2. Very glad to find this article because I just got home and one of my girls was acting odd. I noticed that there was a cricket in the immediate vicinity and wondered if she’d tried to take a bite of it. Her continued behavior made it clear it was just her way of being a show off and to brag about her hunting prowess to me 😆 Still, it put my mind at ease for future knowledge that she’s not making herself sick in the process.

  3. I have two tarantulas that feed with live crickets once a month. I order an extra dozen cuz Joe Bob the cat loves the chase (and to eat them). These crickets are purchased from a reputable shop that supplies feed to small critters, so they are not exposed to pesticides (cuz that would be detrimental to my spiders). Anyway, I give Joe Bob a cricket or two a day (while they last), which isn’t long. Thanks for the post Abigail!

    1. It’s great that you’re taking precautions to ensure that your tarantulas and your cat are not exposed to pesticides. It’s also important to keep in mind that crickets may not be the best source of nutrition for your cat. While it’s fine to offer a cricket or two as a treat, you should also provide your cat with a balanced diet that includes high-quality commercial cat food. This will ensure that your cat is getting all of the nutrients that she needs to maintain good health. It’s also a good idea to keep an eye on your cat when she is chasing and playing with the crickets, as she could potentially swallow one whole, which could lead to an intestinal blockage. If you have any concerns about your cat’s diet or her overall health, it’s a good idea to consult with your veterinarian.
