Despite what you may have heard, some table scraps are good for cats. Everyone needs fresh food, cats included. Just make sure your leftovers don't contain onion, which can cause Heinz Body Anemia in cats. Here are some "people foods" that are safe for cats to eat.

Raw or Cooked Beef, Chicken and Turkey
Because the transit time through a cat's intestines is relatively short, cats are unlikely to develop salmonella or other kinds of food poisoning from raw meat, according to veterinarian Lisa A. Pierson, a noted feline nutritionist. Raw bones will not splinter if chewed. If you cook the meat, remove the bones.
Boneless Raw or Cooked Fish
For a real treat, defrost some frozen, uncooked shrimp for your cat.
Deli Turkey, Chicken and Beef
Most cats love turkey, chicken and beef fresh from the delicatessen department. Meat with added flavouring or preservatives is not good for cats.
Milk gives some cats diarrhoea. But if your cat can tolerate it, a little saucer of milk will be a healthy treat.
Meat Baby Food
Most cats enjoy a saucer of meat baby food. The label on the jar will state whether the food contains onion or onion powder.
Foods that Are Toxic To Cats
In addition to onions, never let your cat eat chocolate, cooked bones, apricots, cherries, peach pits, almonds, apple seeds, avocado, grapes, raisins or macadamia nuts. Just a tiny amount of alcohol, coffee or tea can be lethal to cats.
