Can cats eat bologna?
I'm not sure if it was in this or a previous thread, but I read a post on the internet that made me wonder. Someone said that cats can eat bologna and have not gotten sick. I'm not really sure of the validity of this, but wanted to see what other people had to say.
Cats can eat just about anything. Some of the stuff that is said to be inedible to them may be okay, but if they are not trained properly, some items are not good for them. Bologna is a prime example. When I was growing up, my mom used to put out bologna in the house for my sister and me to eat. I had a problem with it from time to time. The bologna was fine to eat, but the breadcrumbs on the top were a pain, and I would often end up on the floor vomiting. My sister didn't have a problem with it, but my mom was not happy when we were eating bologna for dinner. She did not want us eating it, and I know she was afraid of the possibility of us getting sick. So it is possible that cats can have a problem with bologna, but they may be fine with it if the cats are trained properly.
Yes cats can eat any thing they can catch in the wild. They usually eat whatever is easiest to catch, which is often meat based. Cats in the wild usually eat small game animals, birds, fish, frogs, lizards and other things which are easy to catch. When they are given the choice to eat any thing in the house, it is often easier for them to catch something in the house, especially if it is meat. Cats usually do not eat any kind of vegetables or fruit, only small game animals and birds.
I am currently feeding my kitten the same food as a kitten in a local pet store. It is the same food that the pet store has to offer, and I know that it is good for kittens. I feed it to her in a baby food dish which is good for small kittens. I know that they are not supposed to have it at first, but I am giving her the option to eat it, which she does. I know that she is happy to eat it and she has not gotten sick since.
I think bologna might not be good for them at first. If your kitten does not like it at first, then I would not worry about it. It is possible for them to get sick from bologna, but I doubt they would get sick from it at first.
I'm a cat owner for a very long time and have always been a supporter of all my animals. However, if my cat had any problems with a product of mine, I'd be really surprised if it was something I'd eat. I think it's perfectly safe for a cat.
I think the problem may not be the bologna, but the way it was made. I have always made my bologna in a way that it is edible and safe for my cat. It was the breadcrumbs on top that I found to be a problem. I would just cut up some bologna, put some of the bologna meat in the breadcrumbs, and then bake the bologna. If I remember right, my mom had a bologna maker in the oven. The bologna would bake in the oven at a low heat. The breadcrumbs would be cooked along with the bologna. My sister and I ate the bologna without the breadcrumbs. But my mom would not let us eat bologna that way. I would not worry if your kitten likes bologna. I have had cats eat my bologna and they have never gotten sick.
I have not personally heard of cats getting sick from eating bologna. I have read about it and cats do have problems with it. However, it was not the bologna that caused the problem, it was the way the bologna was prepared.
The first time I was ever given bologna by a vet (it was about 14 years ago), it was as a gift for my cat. At that time, he had a mild form of kidney disease. The vet gave him a piece of bologna and told me that it was the best thing he had ever eaten. My cat ate about 1/3 of it and the rest was given to me. About 30 minutes later, my cat's face started to get puffy, and I noticed that it had formed a little crust on the side of his mouth. Within the next hour or so, the entire upper half of his face got crusty, and we knew he had had a mild case of bologna poisoning. He had lost his appetite, and he did not have any symptoms.
My friend told me that he has had cats have problems with bologna in the past. The cats will have a reaction and go through the typical symptoms. It is the breadcrumbs that will make the bologna toxic to the cat. The breadcrumbs could be any kind of bread, and I do not remember exactly what they were. I just remember that they were breadcrumbs. I know that bread is not good for them because I have seen their tongues when they eat it.
The symptoms that cats get from bologna include vomiting, diarrhea, and even seizures. They can get kidney problems from bologna poisoning, and they can even die. I know my cat was lucky, because he did not get any other symptoms. The cat just got crusty on the sides of his mouth, and then he started to lose his appetite.
I know that some cat owners will be afraid to give bologna to their cats, but I do not think they should be afraid to give it to them. It is not going to hurt them. And they should not be afraid that they might get sick from it.
We had a cat who used to eat bologna for breakfast. That is the only thing I gave him. And I never had any problems with him
