Hello,
My 6 month old kitten just ate a giant mosquito! I tried to take it away but he is much faster than me! Not sure if it causes an any issue. Will it cause any problem, or is there any sign that I need to be careful of? Apologies for silly question! Many thanks in advance!

Hello, this is Dr. Linda. I hope I can assist with your concerns today.

First, there are no silly questions. You are just concerned about Alfie.

Second, no, this will not cause any problems. Cats love to hunt & eat bugs. They are, after all, a form or protein. So I am sure there will be more bug hunting in Alfie's life. My cat pounces on any fly I swat & usually eats them before I can pick them up!

Please reply with any additional questions or concerns you may have.
