Many people who don’t eat meat dislike the idea of supporting cat food manufacturers who use chicken, beef, and fish in their cat food. If you don’t like the idea of killing an animal to feed your cat, scientists in Taiwan are hoping you’ll be less squeamish about letting your cat eat food made from silkworms instead.
Surprisingly cat food made from silkworms eliminates harmful intestinal bacteria—with the added bonus of reducing the odor of the cats’ own byproducts. So if you want to protect animals while feeding your cat, consider silkworm cat food. Your cat might actually like it.
