Q:

Can cats eat pork?

A:

Cats can safely eat pork. A cat's diet should mainly consist of meat, as they are naturally carnivorous. There is harmful bacteria present in animal meat, so it is best served cooked.

Owners must avoid feeding cats smoked por,k, such as bacon or sausage, as these can contain harmful chemicals.There are differing opinions on whether uncooked animal meat is safe for pets, as there are about raw eggs and fish. Some vets argue that the extra nutritional value of uncooked meat is beneficial to pets. Too much fat in a cat's diet is not recommended, as it can cause diarrhea and obesity.
