Your Cat Is Totally Allowed to Eat These 7 Human Foods — We Asked 2 Vets to Be Sure
Every cat owner knows that cats are curious creatures. And, it's the curious character of cats that makes them often take a keen interest in our food. It can be hard to not spoil your lovable furball with a special treat off your plate, especially when they're begging. Their winning personality can make it near impossible to resist.
But some human foods are toxic to cats, since they have different nutritional needs than us — which is why it's important to know what foods are safe for your cat to eat and which aren't. Remember that cats are obligate carnivores, meaning they thrive on a high-protein and low-carbohydrate diet.
