Now I know what I'm doing this weekend. This sounds like the best toy evah.

The last time people tried to elimate free roaming cats it resulted in The Black Plague.

My cats LOVE the crickets, too. It's interesting to watch them since each of their hunting styles are so different. Azalia likes to stalk and chase and so does Sasha. Lacey likes to smack them around like little soccer balls and Egypt, the killjoy just smashes her paw right on top of them, scoops them up and eats them. Egypt also enjoys the ocassional roach or caterpillar that may wander into the house every now and again, but she draws the line at ants...too small to bother with, I guess.

I feed my kitten a diet of raw + supplements. How often would a frozen mouse be recommended? My understanding is that it is very good for their dental health, as well as their health in general. Right now I am trying to figure out the logistics of it all.

It never crossed my mind to feed my cats crickets, but now that you mention it....

They really enjoy chasing and catching unfortunate flies who find their way in my home in the summer...
We do have a store that sells reptiles and food for them here in my borough...so I'm guessing they also sell crickets, my question is: where do the crickets come from? Are they pesticide free? How can I be sure when I purchase them?

I'm sure my cats would LOVE to have this supplement to their diet, as well as the chase that comes with it!

I will go inquire to the store as to where they get their crickets from, and if it's up to par, well I will let you all know how it went! Along with a video of my babies going at them!

Tonali, Elphin, Stibule, Gino, Katla, Airell, Rasta and Chipcat-Filou. All rescued cats!
