Is it a good thing or a bad thing to feed cats table scraps? I guess it depends on who you ask and whether you are considering their health or their behavior. The most basic and complete answer is no, it’s not a good thing.
Canned foods also contain high amounts of water, which cats are meant to ingest with their meals. Most wild prey contains 75% water, making canned foods much more natural to the cat.

You want to avoid fillers, so if you see the words “animal by-products” “bone meal” or “animal digest” on the ingredient list, you should choose a different food. Preservatives should also be avoided, so do not select foods that contain BHT, BHA or propyl gallate.
Catnip has a strong reputation for a plant. Considered the standard marijuana for cats, there is of course a natural controversy that stems from it use. So, what is catnip? After all, if we’re going to argue its use or disuse so vehemently, we should in fact understand it and its actual affect on kittens and cats before taking sides.
