Both cats and ferrets have similar dietary needs as carnivores. But even in this case, it’s better to avoid feeding ferret food to cats on a regular basis.
This type of food is slightly different from the nutritional needs of a cat. It typically contains higher levels of protein and fat than cat food.
Cats also need protein on a daily basis. Unlike ferrets, felines also have a constant need for taurine, which can be found in a well-balanced cat food.
Feeding your cat ferret food daily is not recommended, although it will not cause immediate harm. When giving regularly this substitute can lead to nutritional imbalances in cats.
Feeding your kitty a food that meets all its needs will help it stay healthy and live a long, happy life!
