I feed my kittens a scrambled egg every day because they love it so and I put no salt just fried in butter. Is every day too often?

They do put the eggs in cat food is why I thought it may be alright Bob. These are my chicken's eggs but still I don't want to hurt them is why I asked. One is Siamese and doubt she could ever get fat, I never have had a fat cat come to think of it.
The eggs in cat food are part of the protein package and accounted for in the guaranteed analysis, Jackie. To be balanced, the ingredients must be in proper proportion to each other, so adding your own nutrients can be harmful in the long term.
Thank you for that information beth! Really they haven't been eating them long; kittens 12 weeks old. They are fussy about food sometimes though 7 one day they seemed so interested in the smell of scrambled eggs I let try & they love it.
An enzyme in raw egg whites binds the vitamin biotin so it is not bioavailable. Many human foods range from harmful to toxic to cats. Feline nutrition has been extensively studied and its protocols well documented. Cat food is complete & balan
If you really believe the average cat food is complete and balanced I urge you to read the link another poster posted above me. A cat is more likely to get sick from cat food than an egg (which is natural in their natural wild enviro. before humans).
Sounds like more to this question than I dreamed. Thank you both.
I checked that link and agree with 95% of it. There are some errors. The acceptable foods they listed is accurate and a good guide. With those, you'll do well by the cat. I rep for Earthborn, BTW. Animal nutrition is a complicated science.
Thx; will ck that out later. These are my chicken's eggs, I don't know about bleached?
Bleached eggs are white, not brown. If you are getting them from your own chickens, that is way healthier.
Friskies is what I gave my cat that lived almost 20 years. She ate it dry twice a day and was an outside cat so had rabbit and birds and things. Please don't tell Aviannovice!
ok...OK!...I got you! lol
Am sure that is some very good points. Just never thought of all that.
Ask a vet...great idea! Thanks
