    No, I sure haven't.
    But I have read here of some odd things cats have eaten.

    One time I was out of bait and was walking back to the truck and saw a dead baby bird with a few feathers on it and I thought it was worth a try. Stuck a hook in it (Without touching it, Never know about them wierd diseases!) And threw it out. I got a pretty good bite but the bait came off my hook. I couldn't make my self put a live bird on a hook though, I just couldn't come to it. There is plenty of other bait that will work fine.

    I know some people who have a large lake on there property, just so happens there are also some large bluecats inside. When the canadian geese come in and lay there eggs, they said they have seen the blues come up and eat the chicks when the are very small and swimming with the other geese. Kind of sad but pretty neat..:crazy:
