  • No. Gross as it seems, it is food.

  • No it will not harm her but it doesnt taste all that good. If she is crawling or still young, put the food up out of reach.. Cats are really good jumpers so the cat will be able to eat.

  • No my son is 16 yo has eaten many strange things over the years and never gotten sick from pet food. Heck he STILL eats dog treats when we buy a new brand to see what it is he is feeding the dogs! LOL

  • She shouldn't unless one of the ingredients disagrees with her. Did you know that the way they determine if pet foods are palatable is to have people taste them? Yep, they make pet foods to appeal to the owners, not the pets!

  • No, she may get a tummy ache but will be fine. My son ate dry dog food at about 18 months old. I called they doctor and he laughed and said, "that dog food probably has better meat in it than what you are feeding him, he will be fine." He is now 13 and I still tease him about it.
