Is it safe to feed cats scrambled eggs and raw eggs.

I am interested, is I ok to feed cats scrambled eggs and raw eggs? If feeding scrambled eggs is it ok to mix butter into it to scramble the eggs because I am guessing using milk is a no, no as cats are lactose intolerant?

I am sorry for asking this question out of the blue but I am still learning. Plus which part of a raw egg is best to feed a cat, the egg white or yolk or both?

Thnk you for your replies and advice.

re: Is it safe to feed cats scrambled eggs and raw eggs.

As far as I know it's fine to feed eggs (whole raw) or scrambled - not all cats are lactose intolerant and I don't think the small amount of butter and milk used would matter - you could always use goats' milk and butter if lactose was a problem.
Mine sometimes get an egg yolk if I'm making meringue but aren't that keen
Oh, edited title for you too

Re: Is it safe to feed cats scambled eggs and raw eggs.

Yes it's safe to feed eggs, both cooked and raw. However there are some studies that suggest uncooked egg white should not be fed to cats. There is nothing wrong with feeding a small amount of butter either, it's a good hairball remedy. You could also scramble the eggs in olive oil for some omega 3 fatty acids.


My 3 cats are on a raw homemade diet that includes raw egg yolk in the mince.

Any reason why raw egg shouldn't be given?

Re: Is it safe to feed cats scrambled eggs and raw eggs.

great link TT, thanks, very informative website,

i'd definitely want the freshest free range eggs possible, apparently the ground shell is good to feed as well, my cat has never liked cooked or raw eggs but bf's dog has eaten a few raw eggs every week all his life and he s 16 yrs old atm and still bouncy
