The Daily Cat Quote

“Human beings are drawn to cats because they are all we are not — self-contained, elegant in everything they do, relaxed, assured, glad of company, yet still possessing secret lives.”
― Pam Brown

Flying Into The Future With Insect-Based Cat Food

Coming soon to a pet supply store near you: insect-based cat food.

Cats love to eat bugs, but will they like insect-based cat food?

Cats love to eat bugs, but will they like insect-based cat food?

So your cat just caught a moth and ate it. Eeeuuu… But it turns out that cats like the taste of bugs, whether they’re on the fly or in insect-based cat food.

Researchers recruited 20 taste testers and offered them food that contained either black soldier fly larvae meal or oil. Ugh…

The cats ate both, although they seemed to like the kind with meal better than the food with oil. 

In a world where our cats dine on white meat chicken and fresh caught fish, pouring insect-based cat food into their bowls may seem to fly in the face of convention. But our planet is running out of the resources it needs to feed animals and humans. And if nothing else, insects are plentiful and leave a teeny carbon footprint, if they leave a carbon footprint at all.

The Daily Cat Quote

“I realized that cats make a perfect audience, they don’t laugh at you, they never contradict you, there’s no need to impress them, and they won’t divulge your secrets.”
–Elle Newmark, The Book of Unholy Mischief
