Okay, now that we got the naughty list out of the way, we’re ready for the fun list, the list of foods you can give your cat… with just a few more caveats.
Besides pleasing your kitty, real, whole, natural foods can help add healthy vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, enzymes, and fiber they may be missing in their normal cat food.
However, please keep in mind, that just as with people, moderation is key. Cats require a specific balance of nutrients. You should not attempt to replace all your cat’s meals without the assistance of a veterinarian. You should also be aware that just as some people have food allergies, some cats do as well. Always take caution when introducing a new food to your cat’s diet. Overall, let’s use common sense people.
As carnivores, your cat probably shouldn’t have a large proportion of grains in their diet, however, it is perfectly safe for your cat to eat grains on occasion. Most cat foods and treats use grains as a binding agent, but most prepared cat foods and treats don’t use high quality whole grains. Besides, if your cat enjoys it, a little human-grade brown rice, oats, quinoa, or whole grain flour can add healthful fiber to their diet! Just remember – experts recommend yeast dough products make up no more than 5 to 10% of your cat’s diet and you should never feed your cat raw dough.
