How to scientifically feed eggs to cats
Cats can eat eggs, but not too many.
- Give the cat raw eggs or boiled eggs?
Eat boiled eggs. Eggs are rich in nutrients such as protein, vitamins A, B6, B12, D, and E, riboflavin, folic acid, niacin, iron, zinc, calcium, omega-3 fatty acids (hair-beautifying effects), and antioxidants.
You can get salmonella, E. coli, and Campylobacter from eating raw/undercooked eggs. Especially for kittens, there is a risk of diarrhea and vomiting.
- Egg yolks or egg whites for cats?
Eat the egg yolk. Protein is prone to diarrhea. Egg white/egg white contains albumen, which can destroy the structure of vitamin H in cats if eaten too much. Give the yolk to the cat and the egg white to yourself. Remember to break the egg yolk, or you will be afraid of choking.
- Can I give my cat eggs every day?
2-3 a week is enough, don’t eat too much. If you eat too much, your cholesterol may rise, and you will get inflamed. If the cat is losing weight, it should eat fewer eggs.
A 4.5kg cat should eat an average of 246 calories a day, and an egg can eat about 74 calories, accounting for 1/3 of the cat’s total daily calorie intake.
- Can egg be used as a staple food for cats?
Not allowed. Eggs are nutritious, but cats are carnivores, and there are many nutrients that need to be ingested from meat!
