My boyfriend loves to give my cat a small piece of apple because my cat loves it and is all over him when he is eating. I was just curious if it was ok to feed him apples and what other foods were ok for cats.

My cats love yogurt! But I only give them plain yogurt, about a tsp for a treat.

I try to limit the people food that we give our cats, but once in a while they have gotten treats from us-they love cold turkey or ham lunch meat-

The only "people food" I give my cats is tiny pieces of chicken or fish. Sometimes they eat it, sometimes they just play with it.

If I were you I would stay away from all people food! In dogs and cats people food can really harm their organs! They can develope pancreatitus! I work at an animal hospital and see things like that all the time. It just isnt safe.

I would stay away from apples, seems like it would be hard to digest. I think cheese would be alright.

Chocolate is deadly. I give my cat licks of yogurt, milk from cereal bowl and a speck of cheese as treats but he has had these since he was a kitten. He is allergic to chicken and most foods and treats contain chicken. I would ask your vet. Just remember to keep their weight in line and if the apple upset his belly then don't give it to him.

I am a firm believer in feeding cats and dogs ONLY cat and dogfood and cat and dog treats. Feeding them people food upsets their digestive system and makes them fat. This especially true for inside cats.
