ok to feed a little turkey?

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Just curious if there is any reason Zero can't have a little taste of the leftover turkey.

I am well aware that he will probably be addicted and that I will probably get in trouble with my girlfriend for doing it, but... I can't help it!

BTW, every once in a while I give him a little sliver (very small) of turkey or recently roast beef deli-cut lunch meat, is this very bad for him?

Not at all as long as they are only once in a while treats.

I saw one lady that cooked ground beef for her cats on TV. That was a while back. Did that make sense healthwise? I'm sure they could use the protein and they would be eating something like that in the wild...

Now I'm picturing a pack of DSH attacking a cow!!!!

I give Em turkey all the time. I share my sub with him and on Thanksgiving this year I brought him a little bit from dinner I had at my parents' place.

Anything in moderation is fine. I also boil the bones after they have been picked pretty clean, and then freeze the broth and add it (warmed of course) to the dry food for the cats outside.

I think Turkey itself is better than sandwich meat. Less additives, etc.

Good to hear... HE LOVED IT! I'm now also using it to stuff the little bit of medicine in that the vet gave me..

I guess my kitties are spoiled Aiko & Zeeb get flakes of ham, or flaked tuna with their hard food. The breeder I bought Aiko from used to give them meat all the time, so of course when she got to my house, she was looking for the same treatment! I add a bit of Vitamin E in it for their coats too.

Cats are meant to eat meat! There's no problem with giving it to them. I've heard chicken/poultry is bad for dogs, however...
