Slideshow People Foods Cats Can Eat

The majority of your cat’s diet should be nutrient-dense cat food, but you can give them a little something from their plate from time to time. You just need to know how to choose cat-friendly snacks with the nutrients they need. And if you give them fish, make sure it’s not raw.


Cats are meat eaters, plain and simple. They need to take protein from meat for a strong heart, good vision and healthy reproductive system. Cooked beef, chicken, turkey and small amounts of lean deli meats are a great way to give them this.


Fish contain lots of omega-3 fatty acids, which help keep your cat’s eyes sharp and also helps with arthritis, kidney disease and heart disorders.


Eggs are a great source of protein for your cat. But make sure they are ripe. Like raw meat and fish, raw eggs can also harm your kitty. Therefore you should take great care of your cat.


Not all cats like vegetables, and very few cats like fruits (cats cannot taste sweet tastes). But they are a rich source of vitamins, and they are rich in fiber and water to help digestion.


Cheese is a high-protein snack that is fine for your cat in small amounts. But the proteins in cheese are less “complete” than those in meat, fish and eggs. Whole wheat breadcrumbs are OK, too.

Whole grains

Oats have a lot of protein per calorie and are easy to prepare. Many cats like corn and polenta, which is coarsely ground corn flour, has a good texture for them.
