Yes, cats can eat waffles occasionally in small amounts.
Waffles contain wheat flour, eggs, and milk proteins.
Waffles also contain sugar and oil.
An occasional cat can eat waffles that are not overweight or diabetic; these cats should only be fed waffles as a treat (it is important to restrict the intake of treats).
However, if your cat has been diagnosed with one of these 2 conditions, it is best to not feed waffles as a treat or supplement.
Logically, if your cat is overweight, diabetic, or otherwise ill, he/she should only be fed specially formulated therapeutic diets from a veterinarian.
Sometimes, when feeding cats waffles, the waffles can get stuck in their mouth or throat and cause choking.
This can be especially true if an owner has not properly cut the waffle into bite-sized pieces before offering them to their cat.
Choking is a serious issue with cats and should always be taken seriously.
If a cat is choking, he/she can experience pain and discomfort and its airways can be blocked which could lead to death if not treated quickly by a veterinarian.
Cats should only eat waffles that have been cut into small pieces or should be given in moderation (small bites offer less of a choking risk).
