Can Cats Eat Fries?
In this article I will answer the topic “Can a Cat Eat Fries?”
Before I deep plunge into the subject if a cat can eat fries, I want to look into the health benefits of potatoes and French fries.
How many times do we gaze in our cat’s pleading eyes waiting for some of the food we are eating at a specific moment? I guess countless times is not exaggerated, right?
Well, the question often remains, is the food our digestive system has not a problem coping with of the same as our cat's digestive system? Unfortunately, no!
Since our digestive system and the cat's digestive system is different, let’s see if that has an effect in this case if we feet the cat French fries.
First, let us take the french fries you either buy from a fast food restaurant or any other related restaurant. How do you eat them?
Fatty and salty, right?
French fries are deep fried and come with lots of empty calories. Cats' little stomach do not need many calories. A cat is a carnivore by nature, ergo, the ground diet of a cat should be meat biased. Meat has key nutrients as taurine, which is essential for a proper cat’s diet.
Fries contain saturated fats and lack essential fats as Omega 3 and 6 fatty acids.
Just imagine a small portion of MC Donald’s fries has 138 milligrams of sodium. More than 3x the amount recommended for cats. Feeding you cat French fries is almost as feeding your cat poison.
Your cat can get
- Urinary problems
- Kidney damage
I am sure the last thing you want to do is pay an unnecessary bill to a veterinarian, right?
This paragraph is actually obsolete, still, I want to answer the question “Can cats eat mayo or ketchup?”
Mayo and ketchup alike contain sodium. Therefore, both can cause the same problems as I have listed above.
