training in survival , never eat things alive in tact

if you can't decapitate before , you learn to crush it before you swallow ... crunch crunch swallow

[worms/ants] never chew , you won't like the taste , it is the protein you want the the flavor

That matters not. The soul has reached its pinnacle before then. Or basement, as in the case of this wretched soul. I can't go into details, but suffice to say, we have known for a million millenia that his soul was lost to less than divine providence.

The least they could have done was to cook them first.

Agreed.

Cat loves it though, regards roach as a tasty snack.
Only Grasshopper has a higher cat food approval rate.

Have a nice day: Ag

Anything that can thrive living in a sewer would be the natural winner. Immunity breeds arrogance.:-/

Grasshoppers (& locusts) classical fare for desert cats of Egyptian ancestry. Siamese & Van ancestry probably also responsible for taste in locusts.

Cat lived to age 18.

Was rather strange though.

Fur went from black & white to Chocolate brown & white at age 6. Was very intelligent,(not many self aware cats out there), and able to open a locked cat flap @ any time.

@ age 15 she lost both lower canines & looked a bit vampy from then on. A definite insectivore, did also like birds, but not much for mice & rats (unlike her sister).

Definitely missing that one.

Have a nice day: Ag

ps.
Still got no roaches,(11 years on), but back yard lawn full of grasshoppers in late summer nowadays assuming weather good enough to enable initial small wingless hoppers to grow.

Actually, those roaches and worms were food for the reptiles. In hind sight, they should have remained so.
