Can cats eat Butter?  TheWellthieone

If the butter is opened and on the counter, your cat is all over it, right?

Many people think that cats are obligate carnivores, which means that they require a diet that is primarily or exclusively composed of animal flesh. However, while it is true that cats have some unique dietary requirements, they are actually classified as obligate omnivores.

This means that they are able to digest both animal and plant material, and that they require nutrients from both sources in order to stay healthy.

Can cats eat butter?

So, can cats eat butter? The answer is yes! Butter is a good source of fat for cats, and it can help to keep their coat healthy and lustrous.

However, it is important to give butter to cats in moderation, as too much fat is not healthy for your kitty.

In addition, some cats may be lactose intolerant, so it is best to introduce butter into their diet gradually. Overall, butter can be a healthy part of a cat’s diet, but it is important to feed it in moderation.

What are the nutrients in butter that are good for cats?

Butter is a dairy product that contains many nutrients, including vitamins A and D, calcium, and phosphorous. In particular, butter is high in vitamin A. It has up to twice as much Vitamin A and Vitamin D, which is a significant source of the nutrient for cats as milk.

Butter also provides good amounts of both calcium, about one-third of the recommended daily allowance (RDA) and phosphorus (one-eighth of the RDA).

Some people believe that feeding cats butter may help them maintain a healthy weight or reduce the risk of certain health problems, such as obesity or heart disease.

So go ahead, let your cat lick some butter on a spoon, you’ll make her day!
