Has your cat come home yet? How is he doing?
I am sorry to hear that he has been gone for so long. Most cats don't actually eat the dragonfly... they just play with them.
I know it's breaking your heart to have him gone.
I have seen them take off for up to a month and then come home. I would post fliers and keep ads in the paper and post his loss on http://www.petfinder.com/. Be sure and visit your shelter to look for him daily because, in many counties, strays only get a limited amount of time.
Let me know if you still have questions.
The Dragonflies are non toxic to animals. In fact Dragonflies are actually a help since they eat mosquito larva and keep the mosquito population down. It is not unusal as Tammy has said, for a cat to wandering off. There is even possiblity that a child has seen your baby and picked him and taken him home. I have seen that all too ofeten, especially if your baby was a friendly and loving Kitty. Joan jav917
Fireflies are highly toxic, but not dragonflies. I had checked with the agricultural extention office just to be sure. Joan jav917
