You’ve all heard humans say that it’s so hard to find something that kitty likes to eat. Or that kitty used to eat (whatever) food all the time, but now she won’t touch it. Or kitty will only eat one variety of a certain brand.
We would like to suggest that maybe kitty isn’t the problem. Maybe it’s the food. Would most humans like to eat the same food every day.? Do most humans like diet food? Do most humans appreciate it when someone else changes their diet?
Most humans know that cats are obligate carnivores , and we have to get some essential nutrients from meat. Commercial cat food is prepared to be the most balanced diet available for cats. But that doesn’t mean that we wouldn’t enjoy a healthy treat once in a while.
A lot of kitties like the occasional veggie snack. Particularly popular are spinach, pumpkin, peas, and green beans. Cats can also have asparagus and broccoli, but it must be steamed before it is served. We don’t have any teeth to grind the fibers in them. They do make excellent toys.
Do you have a yen for something a little different? Fruit is an excellent choice for a treat. Fruit-loving cats usually like apples, bananas, blueberries, cantaloupe, and peaches. Just because we can’t taste sweet flavors doesn’t mean we won’t enjoy fruit. Maybe it’s the weird skin.
A few other foods that some of our furry relatives like are eggs, oatmeal, cheese, and bread. Remind Uncle Leo that his human should only serve him cooked eggs. Scrambled and hard-boiled are good options.
A lot of us are sensitive to dairy products, so cheese is not always recommended. However, for the rest of us it can be an extremely yummy treat.
If some of these snacks sound good, tell your human. Humans can be extremely difficult to communicate with sometimes. If they don’t get the message the first time, keep trying.

Our very loved Robin, our 6 pound Tortie who raised three boys for me, ate corn, peas, and scrambled eggs. Her breakfast, besides her cat food on Sunday, was a helping of scrambled eggs along with the rest of us. Some suppers had her with a tiny bit of roasted turkey, some peas and some corn if we were having that. Tiny helpings.
Sounds awesome. It would be like making a plate for a toddler. A small furry toddler (cuter and farrier than most)
Furrier. I hate it when I miss autocorrect
Because of his problems, Louis Catorze tends to have the same food continuously. He is allowed the odd bit of jambon de Bayonne and, erm, medium-rare fillet steak, but not much else. He hasn’t had Dreamies for about 18 months.
Louis certainly gets energy from his food and thrives on it
I’m not sure: I think his energy comes from somewhere darker and more sinister. 😈
My Maine Coon Zeke will try anything!😺
A cat after my own heart.
I’m exceptionally finicky – I only like the things I like, MOL
You guys pretty much hit the nail on the head. Me I do like to eat out a lot, and after that human food really doesn’t appeal.
Love your thinking. And eating local is always better
I had a kitty that liked steamed broccoli, but only for a few brief months.
Sounds like a small child. 🐸
We had a neighbour kitty, that thought he was living with us too ♥ he ate effurything and he liked it too 😀 😸Pawkisses for a Happy Caturday🐾😽💞
Appreciative diners are always welcome
My late boy Jelly Bean was crazy about fresh green beans! He’d come running if he heard them snap from across the house!
Must have figured that if it was a fellow bean, it must be good
Yeah, a good-sized pizza crust on occasion is very tasty!
