What Cats Can Eat?
When you first get your cat, I am sure you are puzzled about what can cats eat.
When you are choosing a diet for your feline friend, remember that all cats were originally carnivores. That’s right. Bottom line? Cats are meat eaters. They need meat for its protein. Meat is good for their hearts, their vision, and even their reproductive organs.
So, cook beef, turkey, chicken, and even small amounts of lean deli meats for your pampered puss. But, there are also other cat-friendly protein-rich foods.
Make your cat a dish of cooked oats—just like your morning porridge. Cats also enjoy corn. Make your cat a dish of polenta, coarsely ground cornmeal. Try brown rice, barley, and wheat berries. Be sure to mash the wheat berries. Cats also like smaller grains like millet, quinoa, and couscous. Occasionally, try sprinkling your cat’s food with whole-wheat breadcrumbs
Cats like fish. It’s full of omega-3 fatty acids. That is great for helping cat’s eyes stay sharp. Fish also helps fight arthritis, kidney disease, and cardiac problems. Use canned tuna or salmon or cooked fish. Raw fish is not good for your fat so avoid sushi.
Cooked eggs are also a great source of protein. Avoid raw egg.
When it comes to fruit and veggies, not all cats are fans. However, it is worth trying to tempt them as fruit and vegetables are a good source of vitamins, fiber, and water. Good ones to try are cucumber, cantaloupe, asparagus, and steamed broccoli.
