How to prepare eggs for cats

Raw eggs aren’t safe for cats, but you can offer cooked egg whites as an occasional treat.

Avoid daily egg white treats to prevent excess calories leading to obesity.

Consult your vet before feeding egg whites, especially if your cat has health issues like diabetes or GI problems.

Don’t add seasonings like salt and pepper; feed the eggs plain.

For a healthy cat, an occasional cooked egg is fine, but ensure it’s cooked to at least 160 degrees before serving.
