Make way for the bird! The main event of the Thanksgiving meal, turkey is also the item on the menu you can feel most comfortable sharing with both your cat and dog. Cats are carnivores, so the meat on the table is the most natural thing to feed your feline. Opinions differ on whether raw or cooked meat is better for pets, so consult your veterinarian if you don’t feel sure. Either way, feed your pet lean, white meat instead of the fattier dark meat, and try not to go overboard.
