People Food Your Cat Can Eat

While it’s usually best to give your pet food that’s specially formulated for their diet, a few treats of human food are fine! You just don’t want to accidentally feed your cat something that will hurt them. Stick with these people food treats to reward your cat.



Cats are meat eaters, there’s no two ways about it. Cooked beef, chicken, turkey, and small amounts of lean deli meats are a great way to give them that. Raw or spoiled meat could make your cat sick. Remember, if you wouldn’t eat it, don’t give it to your pet.

Whole Grains

Oats have a lot of protein per calorie, and they’re easy to make. Many cats like corn, and polenta, a coarsely ground cornmeal, has a good texture for them. You can try brown rice, barley, and wheat berries, but you may need to mash them first. Cats tend to like smaller grains like millet and couscous. Just make sure any grains you give are cooked so your kitty can digest them fully.


It’s not just from cartoons -cats love fish.¬†Fish have a lot of omega-3 fatty acids, which help your cat’s eyes stay sharp as well as help with arthritis, kidney disease, and heart disorders. Canned or cooked fish is fine for a treat. But don’t give them sushi — raw fish isn’t a good idea.
