Cats are known for being finicky eaters. When their everyday food just doesn’t seem to be cutting it and you want to give your cat a bite of something special, the “people foods” listed below are safe options. Just know that all of these foods should only be given in moderation.
1.) Broccoli: Although cats are carnivores and they depend mainly on protein for sustained health and wellness, the occasional veggie won’t hurt. A small portion of steamed broccoli might hit the spot for a cat that’s been attempting to munch on plants around the house.
2.) Melon: This is another non-meat option if your kitty has been snacking on grass or plants. Honeydew, watermelon, and cantaloupe are all safe in small amounts as an occasional treat.
3.) Eggs: Serve a little portion of scrambled or hard boiled eggs to give your cat a punch of protein. Just be sure not to use butter or cooking spray to scramble your cat’s eggs.
4.) Tuna: A little canned tune is sure to make your cat’s mouth water. Again, a small portion is important to avoid over-ingestion of fatty acids and magnesium.
5.) Beef: This may not seem like an obvious choice for cats, but most felines go wild for a taste of beef. Give your kitty a little bite of cooked beef (avoid the fatty portions) for an extra special treat.
