Yes, they can. But not all foods. In general, it’s safer for your cat to live off high-quality cat food. However, if you can’t resist the urge to give your furry friend some scraps from your table now and then, here’s what you need to know.
As far as eating goes, cats are classified as “obligate carnivores”. Which means they need meat to live. You can feed your cat home-cooked meat, just be wary that too much fat can give your cat a stomach ache. Try feeding your cat skinless chicken, liver meat, or lamb meat.
As for fruits and vegetables, those can be healthy and tasty for your cat too. Bananas, blueberries, peeled apples, peas, cucumber, and cooked broccoli are all safe for your cat to eat. Make sure to remove all seeds from the fruits that have them.
