While cats may try to eat dragonflies, it is best to not allow to eat them due to potential toxins and digestive risks.
Cats are natural hunters and may occasionally try to catch and eat insects such as dragonflies. While small, nontoxic insects are generally safe for cats, it is important to note that dragonflies pose a potential risk. Dragonflies can be carriers of toxins or pesticides that may be harmful to cats if they are swallowed. Furthermore, the wings and exoskeleton of dragonflies can be difficult to digest and may cause digestive disorders or constipation. It is best to discourage cats from eating dragonflies. Consult a veterinarian if there are any concerning symptoms after ingestion.
