Cat food Moroccan style. The photographer is Eugenia Burgo. Nice picture. Well done.

This raw fish is food for a Moroccan cat. If this sweet looking white cat eats this raw fish all the time she’ll end up with brain damage and possibly some obscure disease.

Raw fish should not be fed to cats. Raw fish contains an enzyme that destroys vitamin B1, which is thiamin. If a cat is deficient in thiamin she will eventually suffer brain damage¹.

Also fish is deficient in vitamin E and carries diseases. This information is strange because people think cats can and should live off fish. Lots of feral cats at harbours around the world feed on raw fish. Perhaps they eat other foods to maintain a balanced diet.
