Feeding human food to your cat may be tempting, but should not be used as a substitute for a well-balanced, nutritional cat food. Your cat needs a mixture of proteins, grains and nutrients that scraps from the table do not fully provide.
Cats may enjoy a table scrap or two, but a lot of the time they’ll be uninterested. That’s because most human food doesn’t provide the balanced diet cats need.
Ask your veterinarian if these extras are ok for your cat. In general, table scraps are not good for your cat and we recommend avoiding them.
We hope this gave you insight into how important a balanced diet is for your cat.
