Cats and Spiders


Cats and Spiders: The Ultimate Showdown

Deciphering the Puzzling Question

While the cosmos stretches far beyond our comprehension and age-old queries about life’s meaning keep philosophers awake at night, one earthly enigma eluded even the wisest amongst us: Do cats truly fancy a spider snack? Join your friendly neighborhood pest control enthusiast from Barrier Pest Control as we delve into this riveting riddle.

Cats and Their Carnivorous Cravings

Let’s untangle the truth before you plop a fluffy feline sentinel in your living room. Yes, our feline companions do sometimes snap up a spider or two. Why? Cats are natural-born carnivores. Although their diet primarily demands meaty morsels, a stray spider may occasionally satisfy their predatory instincts. But don’t be misled; cats might indulge in an eight-legged entree, but it doesn’t mean they should.

Why Cats Should Skip the Spider Buffet

Every cat owner knows that feline curiosity has no bounds. But here’s the catch – not everything they’re curious about suits their consumption. Here are three reasons why:

A Venomous Venture: Contrary to popular belief, nearly all spiders come equipped with venom. While most aren’t harmful to humans, the same cannot be said for our whiskered buddies.

Digestive Disturbances: Cats may find spiders alluring, but their digestive systems don’t always agree. Ingesting a venomous spider can lead to digestive problems, discomfort, or worse.

The Cat-Spider Paradox: Much like cats are known to chew on plants that may be toxic to them, they might be tempted by spiders despite the potential repercussions.

So, it’s best to let professionals step in in this feline versus arachnid face-off.
