Some bugs and lizards can be harmful to our stalking cats

Dear Dr. Doug,

I am new to the Keys and am a cat owner. I have an indoor-only cat, but he does love to chase any bug or creature that gets into the house. I have seen him catch lizards and the big cockroaches. Is this anything we should be worried about? Also, should my cat be on heartworm prevention? Thank you very much. Gerta, Big Pine
