i made them dinner and breakfeast

i ran out of catfood yesterday and it was easter so i wasn't about to drive around looking for an open store with felidae :P

I made my cats some dinner then breakfeast. Only temporary, but was this okay?

a bit of regular white rice, mixed with egg with bacon and ham added.


an ommlette. egg+a bit of cheese and bacon and ham.

they liked it and aren't farting or pooping too much so i guess it was okay? Is there anything i need to know that they would possibly be alergic too? i only plan to do this if i run out of catfood because these guys expect breakfeast and dinner with no exceptions. they will follow me around meowing and biting me and going crazy if i dont feed them breakfest and dinner.

The only issue i see really is the bacon & ham. More so the bacon. Its processed and can have a lot of salt added. Not sure what kind of ham used, but the same thing, it could be smoked.
Please please please give Maggie the steak! Its not too big for her little mouth!

Their impression of power is remarkable. They give one the feeling of immense reserves of energy, of great reservoirs of knowledge, of tolerance of disposition, obstinacy of purpose, and tenacity of principle. They are responsive, and they have a lot of quiet, good sense.

My parents are the meat eaters. It was a hatfield ham steak. it was pre cooked.

i had 4 cats climbing up my pants (thats what they do when they want food) and so I just took whatever meat there was in the fridge and just tried to make something.

the bacon wasn't pre cooked though.

i would personally never feed bacon to my dogs, even as treats. it is super fatty and loaded with salt and nitrates - ham is no better IMO. cheese is also very high in salt. If you need to feed something, just the eggs will do, if you can add some drained, de-salted canned fish that is even better.
