    I just wanted to post a warning. Our cat had tapeworms. As a result, he ate chicken feed because he was hungry all the time and had access to it in addition to his regular food. I treated him for the tapeworms. A month later, he died from a urinary tract obstruction. I'm betting it was from the extra calcium in the layer feed, though I have no proof. BEWARE, keep your cats from eating chicken feed!
