My cat ate a lizard

I found my cat eating a lizard. He already ate half of it before I stopped him. Will that harm his health?

Answer by Kate
probably not, he may get a tummy upset but it should be short lived.

Cats eat all sorts of things and so have a pretty strong digestive system.

I know that some frogs in some parts of the world can have a poison on their skin but this is there to stop animals from eating them as it tastes bad. I wouldn't think that the lizard had such a defense as your cat obviously thought he was rather tasty.

Just kep an eye on him over the next few days and if you do seem some strange symptoms then contact your vet.

Best wishes Kate
