If you’ve ever wondered whether or not it’s safe for your cat(s) a.k.a Si Comel to consume human food, we can tell you that many of the foods we eat are perfectly fine and actually healthy for them to eat! We know that cat owners always want what’s best for their furkids, up to the point of serving them food with fine dining quality, but which of these foods are okay? And which of them will your cat actually like?

One thing to note is that cats have far fewer taste buds than humans and can’t taste anything sweet. Before you go off making a gourmet meal for your cat, here are a few types of foods we eat that they will enjoy too:

1. Salmon is a safe and healthy option for Si Comel

Cat Salmon

Just like chicken, salmon is also a good source of protein for your cat. It’s also packed with Omega-3 fatty acids which have anti-inflammatory properties that are great for cats that suffer from allergies and dry skin. Beyond that, your cat will have shinier looking fur and less shedding thanks to the benefits of eating salmon.

Serving suggestion: Salmon must also be cooked before being served to your cat as they could get sick from eating it raw. We recommend baking the salmon on parchment paper, to retain its nutrition.

 

2. Bonito flakes are a great treat for them

Bonito? Bueno!

Cats love the taste of bonito flakes and often find them irresistible! Bonito is a bony fish that comes from the tuna family. They’re considered healthy for cats because of these benefits:

  • They’re high in protein
  • Low in carbohydrates
  • Contains taurine, which is an essential amino acid
  • Has low sodium content
  • Packed with fish oils, which are good for fighting feline urinary tract infections, reduce hairballs and promote healthy skins & coats

Serving suggestion: Your cat can eat them as is, straight from the container or crumbled and sprinkled over their food while you look like like a bonito version of Salt Bae. It’s best to buy bonito flakes that have no preservatives or additives, to give your pet the purest benefits from it!

 

3. Crab meat is considered safe and beneficial for their health

You might want to get the crab meat out first

Crabs are considered a treat for many Malaysians, and cats can enjoy them too! Crabmeat is protein-rich and packed with essential amino acids and Omega-3 fatty acids. Aside from that, they’re also full of other vitamins and minerals that are required by cats and other animals.

Serving suggestion: Take out all the crab meat from its shell and make sure there are no small pieces of shell left that could choke your cat. Steam the crab meat and it’s ready to serve! It’s important to remember that crab meat is pretty high in sodium so make sure they’re given as treats and not as a full meal!

 

4. Chicken is a good source of lean protein, and more! 

Cat Chicken

Cats are carnivores and there’s no changing that (and don’t put them on plant-based meats, sorry vegans). It’s in their genes to enjoy and consume meats, which provide them with the much-needed protein and energy they’ll need throughout the day.

High-quality chicken meat is also rich in Omega-6, which helps maintain healthy skin, fur and muscles. Additionally, B complex vitamins found in chicken also helps support and strengthen your cat’s immune system!

Serving suggestion: Always serve the chicken cooked instead of raw, as that could make your furbaby sick. The simplest way is to steam or boil the chicken! 

 

5. Tuna is also the ultimate treat for Si Comel

Cat Tuna Refine

Believe it or not, cats can get addicted to eating tuna. They just love that strong fishy smell and flavour and will gobble up any type of tuna you put in front of them. It’s even possible to spoil your cat with tuna as they might begin to turn away from their regular food if given too much of it.

Tuna contains lots of protein and is low in carbohydrates too, just like many of the foods mentioned above. They also produce Omega-3 fatty acids which contribute to:

  • Overall skin and coat health
  • Improving inflammatory conditions like allergies and arthritis

And if you’re the type who’s looking to treat your Si Comel to a fine dining experience, opt for white tuna instead of red tuna. It offers a richer, fatty taste which your cat will appreciate!

Serving suggestion: Remove all the bones and bake the fish in parchment paper and don’t add any other additives to it as tuna already has a very strong taste.

Alternatively, if you want to skip out on all the prep work but still let your fur baby indulge in the finest white meat tuna there is, check out REFINE, Fine Dining For Cats!

But, why is Premium White Meat Tuna better for your cats? Well for one, it has less fat than red tuna, meat and poultry and the texture is akin to firm chicken breast meat which cats love! They’re also a great source of other vitamins and minerals such as:

  • Iron
  • Potassium
  • Vitamin B6
  • Selenium
  • Iodine

Your cats also deserve only the Finest Chicken Meat, rich in protein and low in calories. High-quality chicken meat is also easier for your cat to digest and as mentioned before, it’s packed with Omega-6 fatty acids which helps maintain healthy skin, coat and muscles.
