Can Cats Eat Egg Yolk
In this article I am going to answer the question if a cat can eat egg yolk and if he/she benefits any gain eating it.
You know that the cat is a born carnivore, ergo, needs primarily protein as his/her essential daily food intake. Let’s see if an egg and the egg yolk actually does meet the requirements to a cat’s daily food intake.
First of all let me dig a bit deeper and lay out the benefits of an egg in general.
These are the questions I am going to answer in this article:
- What are the Benefits of the Egg and the egg yolk?
- Can a cat eat Eggs (yolk)?
- If so, how does the Egg (yolk) benefit the cat on a nutritional basis?
- How, if a cat can eat eggs (yolk) how does it fit best into his/her daily or sometimes diet plan?
Before I actually start answering the question, I want to clear up a long time and significant PR problem that find its root back in the 70s and 80s, that eggs- or at least the egg yolks were considered as cut down dangerous if not to say hazardous when eating more than one or two a day or even a week. Many parents my mom included, told me to mind eating too many eggs a week, and especially a day, because of the incredible amount of cholesterol it contains. How did she come up with her knowledge since she was and still is no doctor or specialist in that field?
Well, because of the myth everybody was believing in without further research. You know how we are. Somebody (who supposedly is an expert), starts a fire, the fire quickly spreads out and at the end eradicates vegetation and even lives. Due to this date the fire (myth is still burning and continuing to spread out). I want to quench the fire at this point and eradicate the myth that eggs and especially the egg yolk does not lead to heart attacks, ergo, you can (if you happen to love eggs as much as I do), with the sane belief that egg yolk is more than edible and do not have to be cut from the egg white and thrown either in the waste bin or maybe given to the cat without knowing if we actually do a cat any favor feeding him/her egg yolks, since their digestive system is so much smaller and sensitive than ours.
However, thank god for living in modern times where we have the advantage of looking and investigating questions on the World Wide Web and find an answer or even being able to bust some myths that we still be believe, because we heard them from somebody who heard it from somebody and it made its way like the wildfire I have already talked about.
In this case busting the myth that eggs and especially egg yolk is bad for you or at least eating eggs on a regular basis, because you might ending up dying on a heart attack due to overeating on eggs that is still floating around.
However, due to modern or whatever you want to call it, research shows that it is not dietary cholesterol that causes human heart disease as much more blood levels of “bad”cholesterol in people tend to go up when eating too much of everything and at the end do not any kind of exercises. Eggs de facto are safe for humans to eat.
