10 Human Foods Cats Can Eat
For You To Enjoy Together


10 human foods cats can eat

Meat

I’m betting that out of all the foods on this list, meat is the least surprising. It’s no secret that cats are carnivores. 

Meat contains most of the essential vitamins and protein a cat needs for optimal health. A diet lacking in adequate meat intake could create a deficiency of taurine, vitamin B12, vitamin A or essential amino acids.

For our cat-kin, this can cause debilitating or life threatening conditions such as heart, lung or liver disease to name a few.

We also begin to see signs such as these:

🐾 loss of fur or dull in color

🐾skin irritations/allergies

🐾problems with hearing and/or eyesight

Human bodies and cat bodies aren’t much different in this way. Even mild deficiencies in certain nutrients can cause major complications.

is raw or cooked meat better for my cat?

The most important thing to remember? If you wouldn’t eat it, don’t feed it to your cat. When in doubt, throw it out!

If you could get food poisoning from eating spoiled meat, your cat could get dangerously ill too.

Always serve cooked meat. I know, there are many advocates of a raw meat diet for their felines. I don’t intend to offend anyone with this post.

Advocates for the raw meat diet believe that it most closely resembles a cat’s diet in nature. I understand their reasoning.

I’d rather be safe than sorry, personally. Raw meat contains pathogens that can make you & your cat very sick.

Cooking the meat mostly eliminates this risk entirely.

Even the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) recommends against the use of raw meat diets due to their risk of illness and cross-contamination.

so what kind of meat is best for my cat?

The best options for sharing your meaty meal with your feline are:

♥ Boneless, skinless chicken breasts cooked plain with no seasoning

♥ Turkey breast

♥ Beef

♥ High quality deli meat in small amounts

Our Dizzy knows the sound of our meat drawer in the refrigerator opening. If it’s the time of day she knows I am making Bill’s lunch sandwich, she will come sit patiently at my feet for her favorite lunch meat!

That’s not to say she will always eat it though! It is most important to prove the point she can still get her way regardless…. 🤣 Such is the life of a cat, right?!?

Don’t even try to tell me we are the only ones experiencing this! I probably won’t believe you 😊

Raw or cooked bones and fat trimmings are a big no no and should be avoided!

Bones can pose a real choking hazard for cats. They can also splinter inside a cat’s belly and cause rupture or possibly fatal obstructions.

Fat trimmings (even when cooked) on the other hand are known to cause vomiting, diarrhea and other intestinal conditions. That makes for one sad kitty!


fruits cats can eat

Fruits 🍉

I’m sure you know the saying: “An apple a day keeps the doctor away.”

While this may hold true for us silly humans, apples and some other fruits are also good for cats as the occasional treat.

Fun cat fact: Cats are unable to taste sweetness. A genetic defect in their taste buds is to blame for this anomaly.

Even though our cat-kin may not be able to taste the sweetness as we do, many still enjoy the texture or smell of certain fruits.

A few benefits of adding the occasional pea sized amount of fruit to your cat’s diet would include added vitamins, antioxidants and fiber. 

Thankfully, most quality commercial cat food brands have already added in the fruits offering the most benefit to your feline.

If you are thinking of feeding fruit as a treat, it’s important to slowly introduce any new foods. 

Doing this helps you know if your feline can handle this new food and how much of it.  Just because it’s considered “safe,” doesn’t mean it’s good for your cat.

Any sudden changes to your cat’s diet can cause digestive distress, vomiting and/or diarrhea. Ouch!   

fruits that are generally considered safe for cats

♥ Apples in very small pieces

♥ Bananas 

♥ Blueberries

♥ Peaches

♥ Cantaloupe

♥ Cranberries

♥ Mango 

♥ Orange

♥ Pear

♥ Strawberries

♥ Watermelon

♥ Raspberries

♥ Pineapples

♥ Apricot

Note: Feeding fruit on a regular basis is not recommended due to the high amounts of naturally occurring sugars.

If you feed your cat any fruit, vegetable, meat, cheese or other food – please be sure it is cut into very tiny pieces. 

Fruits you should never feed your cat:

🍇 Grapes (can cause kidney failure)

🐾 Raisins (can cause kidney failure)

🍒 Cherries are highly toxic to cats

🍋 Citrus fruits like lime, orange, lemon, grapefruit and persimmons

You don’t want feeding a treat to turn into a heartbreaking loss.

Vegetables

If you were one of the millions of kids told to eat your vegetables before your dessert; now you can tell your cat that too!

I’m sure you’ve seen at one time or another, a cat munching on grass. 

Cats primarily need roughage for fiber and as an aid in digestion. Their actual need for the nutrients in vegetables is very minimal.


Even though cucumbers and other veggies are considered as a “safe food” for most cats, some hilariously adorable YouTube videos say otherwise!

Ahhhh!  It’s a SNAKE!! 


A good reason to add some leafy green goodness into their diet? If your favorite houseplants seem to be falling victim to your cats, consider adding a small amount of cooked and finely chopped veggies to your cat’s plate. 

The added fiber intake may be just what the doctor ordered.  

Onions, garlic and other seasonings are toxic to kitties, so be sure your vegetables are plainly steamed.  You’ll avoid the risks and get the benefits.

Personally, I love to grow cat grass indoors.  Every time I’ve grown this stuff, my cats have enjoyed every bite.

All natural, organic and non-GMO are our favorites.



Beware: Cats eat grass in order to dislodge hairballs and other tummy troubles. 

You may notice an increase in your cat throwing up right where you would least like them to. Especially that lovely carpet or rug!

I know, I know, it always seems to be right in the walk path!  Tell me we’re not the only ones! 😀

what vegetables are “safe” for my cat?

  • Cooked spinach (only if no pre-existing bladder or kidney trouble)
  • Steamed broccoli 
  • Asparagus 
  • Pumpkin 
  • Peas
  • Green beans
  • Cooked and finely chopped carrots
  • Zucchini
  • Winter squash
  • Cucumber
  • Bell peppers (red, green, orange and yellow)

cheese cats can eat

Cheese Please

Most cats go dairy crazy.  We’ve all seen the images of happy cats lapping up a delicious bowl of milk or stealing some ice cream. 

But the truth is, cats can’t break down and digest the sugar in dairy, called lactose.

What this means for most adult cats is a very upset tummy.  Even when we aren’t fully aware of the consequences, this can spell misery for your four-legged best friend. 

The older your cat, the more likely they will suffer from worsening lactose intolerance.

The silver lining here is that some cheeses are just fine in very small amounts.  All the better if the cheese of your choice is considered lactose free.  

Some healthy choices for a cheesy cat treat would be a low lactose variety:

♥ Swiss

♥ Cheddar

♥ Cottage cheese

♥ Parmesan

Plain, low fat yogurt is another option you might consider.  The added probiotics can be very beneficial for your cat’s gut health.

One or two tablespoons is more than enough.    Please be sure there are no added sugars, flavors or additional ingredients as this can be very dangerous for kitty.   

Xylitol for example, an artificial sweetener found in many foods, is highly toxic/deadly for cats when consumed. 


10 human foods cats can eat

Whole Grains

My husband Bill rescued a very malnourished feral kitten named Kat. She loved corn on the cob!  He would bring it in the house and before you knew it, Kat had devoured a couple ears of corn.

The evidence was all over the floor!  He couldn’t keep it in the house without her going wild about it.

Kat wasn’t alone.  Many cats love corn and other whole grains.  Even though they don’t enjoy the sweetness as we do, they still love the texture and smells.

It is worth noting that of all possible food allergens for cats, corn ranks as the least likely to cause an issue. 

Most commercial pet food, unless specified grain free, will contain corn to complete the nutrient profile.

A study done by Veterinary Dermatology discovered out of 56 cats participating, only four were allergic to corn.  Contrast that to the 45 cats who suffered from allergy to fish, beef and dairy!  That’s quite a contrast, isn’t it?

It just goes to show that we can’t automatically assume we know what is right for our cat’s health. 

Instead, we need to take notice of their individual condition, seek medical advice from our local Vets and make adjustments when our feline isn’t acting like him or herself.

We are unique in our physical needs.  Our cats are too.

A mistake many well meaning cat parents make is to assume what’s bad for them is bad for their cat too.  Not always. 

Gluten/ grain free, vegan and raw meat diets can all negatively impact the health of your feline if these dietary restrictions aren’t medically necessary.   

If blood work has determined your cat has a food allergy, consider adding a nutritional supplement to make up for what they lack in their diet. 

safe whole grains for your cat

♥ Cooked corn

♥ Couscous or millet seem to be a cat favorite

♥ Mashed sweet potatoes

♥ Breadcrumbs

♥ Plain oatmeal


eggs for cats

The Incredible Edible Egg

Eggs are a super-food in so many ways.  How else did they get their nickname, “the almighty egg?”  🙂

This nutrient dense food is not only safe for your cat but also recommended from time to time. 

When cooked properly, eggs provide protein easily digestible for your kitty.  High amounts of amino acids also help protect their muscular health for lean, strong bodies ready to take on the kitty kingdom!

We all know this is the cat’s world and we are just privileged to share it with them.  They don’t even try to keep this one a secret!

Recently my family member’s cat, Trixie, was suffering from very poor health.  A mysterious tummy trouble was creating a situation where Trixie had no desire to eat. 

When she did, she would get very sick. This never ending cycle was creating increasingly poor health and it was feared she would soon need to be helped to the rainbow bridge. 

Being a farmer for over 60 years, my family member decided to give Trixie some cooked eggs.  This was the only food she was able to eat and it kept her alive, in reasonably good health, for just over another year. 

Eggs really can do wonderful things for your cat’s health.  They are naturally high in taurine making them a welcomed snack.

Eggs are also an excellent, high quality source of the building block amino acids and protein. An all around great addition to your feline’s diet!

Moderation is the key.  1 egg equals 90 to 100 calories, making this a very calorie dense food.  On average, most healthy and active cats only need around 200 to 300 total calories per day. 

Curious how many calories your cat needs to maintain optimal health?  Have a look at this calorie calculator for cat health  

Important note: Please do not feed raw eggs to your cat. They contain harmful bacteria and a protein called avidin. Avidin can block the absorption of vitamin B and cause major health problems. Please consult with your own Vet for best results!


fish for cats

Fish

Let me bust a big myth here…Not all kitties like fish!

My “Shug” would gag even at the smell of fish. She was having no part of it! I must admit, the hubs and I share her aversion. 😲

Quality fish, though, does have amazing health benefits.

Omega 3’s are the primary reason fish is such a healthy food. Omega 3’s protect ours and our pets’ brain, eyes and joints, plus reduce our heart disease risks and so much more! 

Have a dog or cat suffering from joint pain or skin irritation? Omega 3’s from fish oil like this one from Omegease can make all the difference. I have personally witnessed amazing transformations.

In our home, we take a burpless Omega 3 supplement to ensure we are getting optimal amounts of this powerhouse fatty acid!  Both Bill and I have had noticeable and medically proven improvements in our overall well-being.

If you are considering making a change in your health care routine or that of your pet – as always, please consult a medical professional for your individualized care.

When it comes to our furry feline friends, it turns out Omega 3’s are just as beneficial.  Omega 3 fatty acids create shiny, healthy fur and protects those beautiful ‘peepers!’

Raw fish is the only exception to this fishy rule. A diet for cats with raw fish can create a B1 deficiency, also known as thiamine.

Thiamine is responsible for many of the critical functions in your cat’s body.

When thiamine levels become too low, there are severe consequences like stomach pain, weight loss, neurological issues and weakness. Extreme cases can even cause heart failure.

Another primary concern with feeding your cat fish are toxic levels of mercury and magnesium building up in their blood. It is possible to have too much of a good thing and that rule applies to vitamins and/or fatty acids too!

Fish for cats should be given in careful moderation and only when cooked properly.


oatmeal for cats

Oatmeal

Hooray for oatmeal!  Not everyone enjoys the texture or taste of this food choice though – myself included.  

If you are someone who does love the taste and texture of this nutrient dense food, I’ve got good news for you! 

You and your cat can enjoy breakfast (or dinner) together!

Oatmeal is rich in vitamin B.  Vitamin B12 for example is crucial to the health of your cat’s immune system, nervous system, and digestive tract.

Your cat may not go wild over oatmeal, but hey, it’s worth a try right?  You might find a new way to make your cat-kin smile! I’d say that calls for a long cat nap in the sunshine! What do you think?

Just remember – formulated for health cat food is the most important ingredient your cat needs.  These tasty treats are just that… treats.

A perfect example of how oatmeal can be added to your cat’s diet for optimal health is this food made by Simply Nourish: Natural Made Simple – Indoor Chicken & Oatmeal Recipe. 

Simply Nourish has created a food that is delicious, nutritious and focused on top-notch quality.  Many of the healthy ‘people foods’ from this list are already included in Simply Nourish’s formula.

By-product meal and ingredients you can’t pronounce?  Not in this food. It’s packed full of everything your cat needs to be healthy for many years to come. 

We buy our food from Chewy.com and have always been 100% satisfied with their service.  They ship quickly, save you money for pet care and time. Highly recommended.  If you have any questions about them, I’d be glad to help!

Amazon Prime also offers this very same food.  At this time, Chewy’s price is significantly lower. (We often find this is the case with all of our cat care purchases)

Around this home, we like saving money anywhere we can! Hopefully I can help you do the same here at Cat Care Solutions. That was always my goal, helping others in any way I can.


can cats eat baby food

Baby Food for Cats: Believe It Or Not!

That’s right, some baby foods are safe for your cat too! 

In fact, there are some medical reasons this food choice would be beneficial.  Though it is great for emergencies, a regular diet of baby food is not typically recommended. 

Senior cats, sick cats and stubborn cats who need to take medication are all great reasons to feed baby food. 

Added ingredients can seriously harm or kill your cat.  Carefully check labels for ingredients on the do not feed list. 

If your baby food has any of these ingredients, please do not feed it to your four-legged baby:

  • Onions
  • Garlic
  • Salt
  • Any added sugar or sweeteners of any kind
  • Milk (dairy products) 
  • Oils
  • Fruits or vegetables (because not all are safe!)
  • Cornstarch IF your cat is diabetic

The general safe rule of thumb is to consider options with only a few ingredients such as pureed meats and water.  Cornstarch is generally considered safe if your cat is not diabetic.

A little goes a very long way.  1 teaspoon or tablespoon is a great start.  🐾

  2. Gerber 2nd Foods Meats, Chicken & Chicken Gravy, 2.5 Ounce

pasta for cats

Other Yummy In My Tummy Safe Cat Snacks

Pasta!

I kind of chuckled when I read this as my imagination went to an Italian speaking kitty who couldn’t live without their pasta and works pure cat magic with it! 🙂

Next time you’re cooking up some plain spaghetti noodles and feel like sharing, you can! Just make sure it is a tiny amount.

Pasta is loaded with carbohydrates and can cause feline obesity and other digestion distress.

It is also possible for your cat to be gluten intolerant. This could make your cat’s stomach do back flips and nobody likes that, now do we?

♥ Whole Grain Bread (in small amounts)

Here at our home, we feed a lot of feral kitties.  Apparently the word is out that total softies for animals live here and will keep their tummies full.  We sure would love for them to have their forever homes!

Here are two of the brothers sunning themselves on our deck. Aren’t they adorable? Those are some happy faces!

We call them “Big Man” and “Lil’ Man.” Big Man is the cutie with more white and Lil Man is our “ginger tux.” 😻


It turns out that one of the ferals really likes bread, a lot.  She’s a glutton for it.

I have often wondered, “Is this safe?” Thankfully, it is.  Much like pasta – unless your kiddo has a gluten allergy, small amounts of bread are perfectly okay to share. 

Whole grain breads are preferred over white bread for their nutritional benefits.  

I wouldn’t recommend feeding bread as a regular snack in your cat’s diet, though.  In the same way large amounts of bread for us can cause weight gain and other health problems – the same is true for our cats. 

has this guide helped you?

Sharing Is Caring ♥ Thank You!

Comments

    • Aw! Thank you Sandee! Always nice to learn something new isn’t it? 🙂

      Wishing you a wonderful day too my friend. Hugs to you as well! ♥

  1. This is a fantastic list, and really interesting too! I feed Virgil a mix of dry and wet cat food, the wet usually having meat chunks or fish (I tend to go meat because I think he prefers it, as do I as I can’t stand fish!) Whenever a roast joint is cooked for the hooomans, Virgil gets leftovers, so he’ll get beef, pork or roast chicken once or twice a week as well which he really likes. I hadn’t thought of taurine deficiency but you’re right about the goodness in meat and the need to apply the same rule to our cats that we would ourselves; if we wouldn’t eat it, don’t feed it. Personally I would never, ever feed raw meat. There’s just something ‘wrong’ about it in my mind even though of course animals in the wild eat it all the time.

    I never knew cats can’t taste sweetness, how unusual! I have offered up a peeled grape or two for Virgil in the past but he’s never bothered, he swiftly shows me his bum and looks at the cupboard where his cat sticks are. Now that I’ve read they can cause kidney failure I’m very glad he didn’t eat one! That said, while I offered it to him I’ve never thought of giving him fruit as an actual part of his diet. Again, it just doesn’t ‘sit’ right with me.

    I follow the thing of ‘if I don’t like the sound of it I don’t feed it’ and tend to stick with just cat-specific food with a little hooooman proper meat occasionally. It’s fascinating to learn what is safe and what isn’t (which is hugely important!) Fantastic post, Holly!

    Caz xx

    • Sounds like Virgil is eating pretty good over there my friend! 🙂 That roast joint goodness just about made my mouth water. No wonder Virgil likes taking so many naps! 😀 I’m glad to hear someone else shares our not so loving relationship with fish! I know it’s healthy but ugh!

      I know exactly what you mean about raw meat. I share the same feelings. Just because wild animals do it doesn’t mean that it’s right for them. Evidence of this is how short their lifespans tend to be in comparison to domesticated indoor animals. There are too many ‘what if’ possibilities to make it a wise choice, in my humble opinion. I see you agree 🙂

      Hahahaha, I had a mental image of Virgil showing you his bum as he walks toward the cabinets where the REAL stuff is! They are definitely no fools! 🤣 Cute story Caz! I think the “safe fruits” can be beneficial in many ways. I just don’t personally feel it should be the norm. Some cats go wild over the option though. For them, I can see giving in from time to time. If our cats could take it or leave it, I’d certainly not force the issue.

      I’m glad you enjoyed the post, Caz. I’m curious and would like your honest opinion (truly). I’ll not be offended with your honesty. Do you think this post is too wordy or lengthy? There was so much information involved that it became much much longer than I had originally anticipated. I want to be helpful but not overload either. I wondered if I need to find a way to split this post up? Or do you think I should just leave it as it is and refer to it as a guide like I have? Your opinions are always welcome. I value your feedback my friend.

      Thank you again for always making my day with the best comments! 💕 Holly

  2. Our Najar has an ailment that she was probably born with that makes her small intestines swell when it flares up. We’ve been treating her, but she’s decided she only likes people food, and has hardly touched cat food for a couple of weeks. I give her meds that reduce the swelling and help stimulate appetite, but her appetite and pickiness has gotten way out of hand. The vet and I are very puzzled by her behavior.

    • Wow Tim, what an interesting story. I can see why y’all are puzzled by her behavior. Najar is your black kitty right? It sounds like an autoimmune/inflammatory type condition? Is the medication a steroid type drug? She was tested for food allergies I’m assuming?

      Sorry for all the questions. I’m very curious about your experience with this. (I’m a learning junkie too, sorry!)

      • I giver her Prednisolone, and she’s gotten a few other steroid shots. No food allergies. We’ve dealt with this issue off and on for the past few years, but this time it’s being really persistent.

      • I figured Prednisone but wasn’t sure. Hmm, interesting. Prednisone will definitely make her appetite soar but it’s interesting that she won’t touch her cat food.

        It sounds like an inflammatory bowel condition that has flare-ups in the same way most autoimmune disorders do? I have to wonder what her aversion to the food is though. It’s as if it made her feel bad and she hasn’t forgotten it!

        She basically refuses to eat any brand of cat food?

      • It’s off and on. One day she will scarf down food of any type, the next day she won’t touch it. I’ll have 3 or 4 cans of food open, plus cooked chicken, cooked hamburger, sardines packed in water, etc. trying to figure what she feels like any given day. Sometimes she eats a little bit of one, sometimes more of one than one, and sometimes she will have nothing to do with any of it. She’s a real puzzle for me.

      • Sounds to me like you have a full-time job taking care of that Najar 😀 She sounds like a peculiar lady who knows exactly what she wants (or think she does). Hopefully she doesn’t take secret pleasure in discovering what a wonderful human slave you are. (kidding of course!)

        That is definitely a puzzle. They are masters at confusing us, I’ll admit to that. Dizzy has a few behaviors that make absolutely no sense and there’s no way to know what in the world she is doing (or what she wants). It sounds like you have a similar situation on your hands.

        I will say this, God bless you for loving those cats so much. That truly warms my heart! They really are our kids, totally dependent on us for so much of their well-being.

      • Human slave is right (no kidding). That vet is doing a barium study on her today to see if she can determine what’s going on with her digestive tract. Poor Old Lola is in getting her wrist splined. Lola has really bad degenerative arthritis in her front paws. She managed to fracture the right paw and mess up the tendons. We have her on Gabapentin which helps with the pain, but she is so sad limping around with her broken paw. We are hoping if we can keep a splint on her, the bones will fuse back together. We’ll see.

      • Aw Tim! I am so sorry to hear about both of these cuties. It sounds like quite a time around your home here lately!

        I am hoping with you that this Vet can get some concrete answers for you guys after the barium study is complete. I still wonder if it’s inflammatory bowel disease of some form. Will you let me know what they find? I’d be very interested and might even do a post about it to increase awareness of the condition. That is unless you’d rather not, which I’d certainly understand!

        I am saddened to hear about Lola too. Arthritis is no fun at all! It sounds like she has it pretty bad to fracture her little paw like that. Bless her heart! Gabapentin is effective for pain in most cats but I sure hope they can at least decrease her pain significantly. Hoping with you for her recovery after this splint. I’d love to hear updates on sweet Lola too.

        Sending you and the whole family my love and well wishes. I pray they both get some much needed help today!

      • Lola’s in a cast. Really cute. I writing a song for her. Najar is more serious. Her blood counts were normal a month ago, now she very anemic and her white counts are low. Apparently this auto-immune issue is attacking her red blood cells. The vet sent off labs for a more thorough look into what might be happening.

      • I am looking forward to the song about Lola. 🙂 I bet she is cute!

        I am so sorry to hear about Najar, Tim! Bless her heart. I know she must be miserable and wondering why she feels so bad! 🙁 I am sorry that you received bad news too. It’s always tough when we see our kids suffering and can’t do much about it. I am hoping there is a solution for sweet Najar once the labs come back.

        I really do appreciate you coming back with an update. Keeping each of you in my thoughts and sending well wishes your way!

  3. This was such an interesting and informative post .I was amazed to know that not all kitties like fish ,was under the impression that they all love it! The fact about them unable to taste sweetness came as a surprise as well. Good information about dangers of feeding raw meat and sharp bones , I’m sure this post will benefit many pet owners on what is safe and what is not.Thanks for sharing!

    • Hi Nisha! It’s great to see you here. Thanks for stopping in as always!

      I was really surprised when my cat Sugar didn’t like fish. I too thought most (if not all) cats really enjoyed it. Guess that’s proof positive we can’t believe everything we hear and/or see, right? 🙂

      Your kind words mean a lot to me. Always nice to hear from you. Thanks for sharing your thoughts with me! 🤗 I hope your day is a beautiful one!

  4. This is a wonderful guide!! I had no idea about some of these things. My cat Oatmeal loves chicken and she will sit really close to you and just stare until you give her some. It’s really creepy. Amber could care less. 🤣

    I used to have a cat named Kit Kat that would fight me for my yogurt and peaches. I was always afraid to give her any, but now I see that a little bit was ok. Thank goodness!

    Your corn eating kitty made me laugh! I was picturing a cat chomping the corn cob like on cartoons!! 🤣🤣

    • Aw Michelle! You just made me one happy Holly! So thankful you enjoyed this guide. 🙂

      😂 I absolutely love it when you share stories of Oatmeal and Amber’s antics. I can perfectly see in my mind’s eye Oatmeal with the creepy eyes, trying to figure out how creepy she can be in order to get her way, LOL. Very cute!

      Yogurt and peaches? You’re kidding! I’m really surprised by that one. Isn’t it amazing how unique their personalities are? We could have 100 and they’d all be completely different!

      Bill’s kitten Kat would’ve definitely made for the perfect cartoon cat! 😹 She would’ve made for the perfect “Funny Cat Friday” too me thinks.

      So grateful to hear from you my friend. Your comments *always* make my day! You taking the time to share your stories means more to me than you’ll know. Sending loads of love your way today & always. I pray y’all are well. 🤗

    • Aw Kate! Thank you so much. That means a whole lot to me. I was concerned it was too lengthy or hard to understand.

      Sounds like you’ve got one lucky kiddo over there 😉 Blessings to you, Kate! ♥

    • Hi Brian! Great to hear from you here! Thanks for stopping in.

      Isn’t it funny how each cat has as unique of a personality as we do? I always enjoy seeing that and know y’all do too in your home!

      Your crew sounds like a spoiled and much loved bunch. That always warms my heart to hear. Seeing them over on your blog never ceases to make me chuckle and smile. They’re precious!

      Wishing you and all of yours a wonderful day!

    • Aww!! I love it. He sounds adorable. Pumpkin is pretty tasty. 🙂 How could we not share with those precious, oh so irresistible faces? I’m so glad you took the time to share this. Thank you! ♥
