I used to have a cat that would catch mice and play with them before finally killing it. I've also seen other cats do it. It's just what cats do. Sure it's not exactly very nice of the cat to do but it's their nature, otherwise they wouldn't do it.<br><br><br><br>
As far as the cricket goes, losing a leg isn't a big deal. In fact it is a defense mechanism for an insect to easily lose it's limbs. Those legs can pop off with the slightest pull and don't hurt them any. This allows the insect to get away from a predator. The predator grabs the leg, the leg comes off, and the insect can get away. Granted, a cricket can't move away as easily if it's missing limbs but it still has a fighting chance. Also if the cricket is not an adult, meaning it hasn't fully formed wings yet, it can regenerate new legs by the next time it molts. The insect will just be more vulnerable until it molts.<br><br><br><br>
Hope this helps.
