What is Caviar?
Caviar is a type of salted fish roe, typically from wild sturgeon, that is considered a delicacy and can be eaten as an appetizer or garnish. It comes in many varieties including beluga, ossetra, sevruga and lumpfish caviar. Generally speaking, caviar refers to the eggs taken from the wild sturgeon species but it has become increasingly popular with farmed sturgeon roes as well. It has been around since ancient times and remains a luxurious dish throughout the world today.
Can Cats Have Caviar?
Cats are generally not recommended to have any type of caviar due to its high fat content which can lead to digestive issues such as diarrhea or vomiting if consumed too much. Additionally, some types of caviar may contain parasites that could be harmful for cats so it’s best to avoid feeding them this food altogether. While cats may find the taste appealing due to their love for seafood-based flavors, they shouldn’t eat any quantity of caviar on a regular basis or even occasionally given its potential health risks associated with consuming this luxury item.
