Cats, as carnivores, are considered capable of consuming fish with the utmost naturalness, unlike their humans: not even the bones seem to prevent them from tasting it both raw and cooked, while we have more scruples. There are many people who give them fish, but the fishbones however, they raise quite a few concerns. It is true that cats can eat them without problems?
Fish is considered good food for a kitty, but it should be good only a part of its diet: its ancestors were not exactly large consumers of it (apart from some wild species) and therefore its development does not depend significantly on it. The excessive amount of phosphorus and the low amount of calcium, sodium and iron it contains do not make it exactly ideal for a daily meal.
As for the bones, the most widespread opinion is that they go removed completely and carefully as they can seriously damage the cat's throat and gastrointestinal tract. If you told us that your cat can swallow a fish in one gulp we would believe you, but the risk is still present even after years of "practice". And in case of injury or obstruction thorns can be very treacherous and difficult to remove even by an expert.
It is also strongly advised to serve the cat alone cooked fish. In fact, the raw one contains an enzyme that cancels the effect of vitamin B1: an insufficiency of this vitamin causes serious neurological problems with symptoms such as anorexia, dilated pupils, movement coordination problems, aggression and seizures. Most of the cats diagnosed with this disorder had eaten large quantities of raw fish such as carp, herring, pike, cod and more. Raw fish can also transmit parasites to the animal.
In general, a very practical alternative is frozen fish, available on the market already without bones and bones and easy to prepare boiled or steamed for our cat.
However, there are some people who support a thesis radically opposite: catfish should be given whole and preferably raw because the thorns, not being oxidized by contact with air, are for him easier to shred and consume and should not pose a problem to your digestive tract. The bones of cooked fish, on the other hand, can lose splinters and cause damage to the esophagus, so it is necessary to eliminate them all before serving it to the animal.
The short answer is: yes, we can give the cat fish skin . Everything of animal origin, in fact, contains essential proteins for the nutrition of our four-legged friend. It should not be forgotten, precisely, that we are dealing with mainly carnivorous animals, which need the correct amount of taurine.

Cats can eat cod ? As we know, Micio loves to eat fish, after all it is a purely carnivorous animal and feeds mostly on proteins. But also the fish must be given in the right way, choosing the appropriate types and always cooking it well. When we want to give him something different, we consult the vet, to understand if that particular food can hurt him or not.
