The Daily Cat Quote

“I am what I am. I would tell you what you want to know if I could, for you have been kind to me. But I am a cat, and no cat anywhere ever gave anyone a straight answer.”

Eeeuuu... Black Fly Larvae Cat Food?

Will food containing insect ingredients soon fill this cat's crystal dish?

Here's something to put at the very top of your Eeeuuu List: black soldier fly larvae as an ingredient in cat food.

If just the thought gives you the creepy-crawlies, the good news is that cat food containing black soldier fly larvae probably won't be showing up on your pet supply retailer's shelves anytime soon.

EnviroFlight, the company that's producing the ingredient, began construction of its plant just last month. It expects production to reach capacity in the first quarter of next year, and the first taste testers will probably be poultry and farmed fish. That gives you some time to get used to the idea of your cat eating fly larvae that came from a factory. Eeeuuu...

In Pet Food, It's All About Sustainability
