Human Foods that Cats Can Eat

It may be hard for you to resist your cat with a special treat from the dinner table. There are various human foods which are good as well as nutritious for your feline friend. Here are some human foods which can be given to the cats without any hesitation:

fishFish
Boneless boiled fish like red snapper and salmon are excellent for your cat. Apart from this, canned tuna is also good for your cat but in small portions. Fish is a good source of protein. You should remember that your feline friend’s diet should never solely consist of canned fish.

Boneless meats – chicken, beef, turkey, ham
Boiled boneless meats can be a tasty and nutritious treat for your cat. But, you should aware of any sort of preservatives, flavorings, and other seasonings as they can be detrimental to your feline’s health. Cats can eat normal bone-in meats, but cats which are accustomed to chow will find it difficult to deal with the bones in meat. Therefore, it is recommended to go boneless. Further, any minced meat will be fine.

Broccoli
The diet of a cat is dependent on protein, but sometimes she gets a craving for veggies. If you notice that your feline friend is chomping on your house plants, try feeding her a small portion of steamed broccoli. It could satisfy her desire for greens and keeps them away from the potentially toxic house plants. Eating toxic house plants can cause poisoning in pets.

Cheese cheese
Cheese is a good source of protein for your cats, but since many cats are intolerant to lactose, larger portions can cause some digestive issues. You should try to feed your friend low-lactose cheese or cottage cheese before attempting anything richer. It is important to make cheese a special surprise, not an everyday treat.

Eggs
Give your feline friend a real breakfast by serving up some delicious eggs. Hard-boiled and scrambled eggs are excellent for giving your cat a dose of protein. Be careful not to use any cooking spray or butter during the preparation of eggs that you are planning to hand over to your cat. While there is not a consensus, most veterinary doctors recommend staying away from the raw eggs, since the same food-borne illnesses that affect humans can also upset pets.

Bananas
Frozen bananas are a safe snack to feed your feline friend if it has that craving. As with the other non-meat products on this list, bananas should be fed only in small portions to your cat because cats are natural carnivores.

watermelonWatermelon
Cats love watermelon. It is fine for your cat to ingest small amount of watermelon. You should make sure to remove the seeds of watermelon before giving it to your cat. These fruits can help you cat with the digestive issues, but these should be offered only occasionally because cats are carnivorous animals and their bodies cannot digest large amounts of fruits.
