Sure thing. Cicadas are insects and insects are on the domestic cat's menu. In fact, they are quite a popular part of the domestic cat's diet. So, it is fine. The reason why I asked the question because here is a video of a couple of Maine Coons messing around with a cicada while thinking about eating it. I don't think they do. They are quite big insects. There is a faint possibility that a domestic cat with a sensitive stomach (a Siamese?) might irritate their stomach if the ate one. The Maine Coon is not known to be predisposed to having a sensitive stomach unlike the Siamese. It is said that Siamese cats or Siamese crosses are genetically at higher risk for developing food allergies. But unlike commercially prepared pet foods, insects are natural foods. I'd have thought that insects were less likely to prompt an allergic reaction than pet food.



Note: This is a video from another website. Sometimes they are deleted at source which stops them working on this site. If that has happened, I apologise but I have no control over it.
