I'm at my friend's and he's just told me he's going to cook the cat egg on toast. This isn't a joke, this literally just happened. I thought he was joking. No. He's ran out of tinned cat food and apparently the cat loves it. Have I drifted into a parallel universe? Am I going mad?

I've heard of people feeding scrambled eggs to their cats, but not toast.

Eggs yes

Toast no

I thoughy cats are mostly just protein. Don't have cats so no idea, but is it ok for a cat to eat toast?

My cat and my dog love scrambled eggs! I used to feed it to my dog when she was ill as the vet said it was easy for her to digest. The cat used to polish up any leftovers.

Cats ate mostly protein grin

My cat used to love toast, eggs, tuna, ice cream, tomato soup, Weetabix....pretty much anything. She was as much of a dustbin as my dogs are. I met someone whose dog literally had 'dinner' with them every night and ate what they did at the same time as them. I found that a bit unusual, though presumably the dog didn't sit at the table with a plate...grin

Post op my vet recomended feeding the cat scrambled egg. Cat was like this hmm when presented with it.

Toast? Well there is quite a lot of cereal/grain in run of the mill, cheap cat food but yes cats are general better on high protein foods.

Oh and she'd launch herself at you and walk down your body to get at the ice cream. Bloody rude. She was half-feral and knew how to take care of herself. When DH got up in the night for a wee she would climb into his bit of the bed and lay there....they hated each other to start with! Bloody loved that animal.

Mog (in the Judith Kerr books) always liked a boiled egg or two...

Mine loves custard hmm

WanderWomble Wed 15-Jul-15 13:08:03

One of my cats will eat anything she can get her mouth around. Included bread if you turn you back on it. She's not starved, I promise!

Haha ok, so seems like I ABU grin

My cat loves scrambled egg! She's all over me like a rash whenever I have some, I always give her a bit, sometimes on a saucer so we're both eating off a 'plate' at the same time. (crazy cat lady alert)

I've never made it specifically for her though, maybe I will now, sounds kind of cute smile. She loves mash potato too.

One of ours really, really liked ginger cake and Baileys. I suspect her of being a Great-aunt Sheila in the making. hmm

My cat used to love it if you picked the buttery "skin" off toast and fed it to him.

I think he thought it was chicken confused

TheReluctantCountess Wed 15-Jul-15 16:01:12

We give the dogs pasta and gravy if we run out of dog food.

Crosbybeach Wed 15-Jul-15 16:01:58

Mine loved Chicken Tikka Masala - had to be locked out of the room if we had it as I'm sure it wasn't good for her.

badtime Wed 15-Jul-15 16:06:07

My sister's cat eats spaghetti bolognese. I once fed a cat chicken and vegetable broth, because it seemed very hungry and we didn't have anything else.

hotfuzzra Wed 15-Jul-15 16:07:12

I thought he was cooking a 'cat egg' on toast. I wondered WTF he had that he thought was a cat egg and WhereTF it came from grin

NothingDuck Wed 15-Jul-15 16:10:32

My cats like raw egg. My vet said it was fine to give them that. Would save your friend having to wash up a pan. Anything they could eat in the wild is good for them: raw chicken with bones is good for their teeth, not cooked though as the bones splinter. Not sure they could catch chicken tikka masala in the wild...

I've given our dogs scrambled egg and rice if they've been a bit ill in the past but not the cats. Just make sure it's not too often because cats do need to eat meat or they go blind (whereas dogs are omnivorous and can live perfectly healthy lives on a vegetarian diet as long as it's got a good balance).

Our dogs had leftover cold Chinese takeaway for breakfast this morning. They were thrilled.

Local pet shop owner confesses has given up on pet food for own pets. She just cooks another portion of what they are having. That way the pets don't complain, leave their own food to hold to waste, look at you with soulful eyes. Eat at same time. Don't eat the veg.

ancientbuchanan Wed 15-Jul-15 16:12:59

Go, not hold.
