If you are new cat owner, this is probably one of the first questions you will ask. Many cat owners want to make their feel cats feel they are welcome and loved. They express this by giving them sweet treats. But cats are carnivores so they do not eat fruits and vegetables. Some cats may show interest in these foods but generally, they prefer meat diet. So you should not give them anything that has fruits in it. There are types of fruits that are not good and sometimes toxic to cat and that should be enough reason to never give them fruits.

You probably love giving your cat with some treats including human foods. While some of it is perfectly fine for your cat to eat, most of the foods you regularly eat are not advised for cats. There may be certain health conditions your cat will develop if you allow them to eat these foods on a regular basis. Consider also that your cats may have allergies to certain foods which are considered safe for them. You may want to ask for the advice of your vet to find out the examples of food that should not be given to cats.

The safe foods for cats include canned fish like tuna but make sure to serve it in small portions only. No meat food must be served in smaller portions. Cats may also be given cheese as long as it is in small amount. When it comes to veggies, cats may eat steamed broccoli but before introducing them any vegetable, check if your cat chomps on plants. If not then a diet with vegetable is not suitable for them. Cats can also have cooked eats and lean deli meats. Peas can make great snack for cats. Spinach is also good for them but again, in small portions only. Beef is also good for cats.

If you want to give your dog some fruits, melon and bananas are some of the best types of fruits you can give them. Melon should be given in small portions. When serving bananas, freezing it would be a perfect treat and again, like most of the food you give your cat, the serving should be small, just enough for your cat to eat. Some cat owners also give their cats with canned baby food. This is great for cats suffering from health problems.

Now that you know the safe kinds of foods your cat can eat, it is also important to know that there are foods unsuitable for them. Even just trace amounts of chives and onions are not good for cats because it can damage red blood cells. Uncooked eggs are also considered not safe for cats because it can expose them to salmonella. Never ever give your cats bones because it can choke them. Caffeine may cause increased agitation and heart rate so do not give them anything that has caffeine such as coffee. Be careful what to feed your cat, there are some fruits that cats can eat and there are other that aren’t, have the hobby to learn all of them before feeding your cat any foods.
