30 Human Foods That Are Safe to Feed Cats

28. Chicken

Cats are meat eaters, and they need a diet high in protein to be healthy. They love eating chicken, and it’s a healthy, safe protein for them. Chicken breasts are best because they contain the least fat.

You can often add chicken to cat food formulas, and remember: you can’t go wrong with sharing chicken with your feline friend.

Make sure it’s well cooked, though. Remove any bones, because they can splinter easily and get stuck in the throat, or the sharp splinters may damage the digestive tract. If a chicken has been cooked with hot spice, it may not be suitable for your cat. Keep it bland and remove any fat and skin.

If your cat is suffering from diarrhea, offer him or her a small bowl of boiled chicken and rice instead of cat food and continue with this until diarrhea passes.
