When I feed my cat Tuna, I only give her a bit over half of the daily amount recommended and then half a can of Tuna. I dunno if it's smart to feed them tuna daily though, because I heard someone say it can do harm to their kidneys.
Yep. I've heard this before. That's why I give them only a little bit when they see I'm opening a can...

It's okay to feed your cat tuna, but it should be in moderation. Tuna is specifically beneficial for cats with arthritis. Tuna oil contains Omega-3 fatty acids that can be very helpful and beneficial in arthritic diseases.

For Omega3 better feed your cat with sardines (not too much, though), they are healthier than tuna.

Or put some omega 3 capsules in their food I'm doing it 3 times a week now, thanks to Irene.

We occasionally feed our cats tuna, we only buy tuna that's in spring water. About once a month or so they get grilled fish (mostly cod or halibut), but for daily food they get cat food. My vet says that tuna is okay, as long as it is packed in water, and given in moderation, same goes with fish.

I also give my kitty tuna in water when I give her tuna. Which is really not often. Maybe once a month.

My cats are not so crazy for fish?? They like other normal flavors but not the fish. The only thing bad about giving our cats people tuna is the added salt! I wonder why they put it in the tuna anyway- people don't need added salt either !! I have another great tip to pass along! If you put their food dish of food (any food dry or canned) into the microwave for just 4 or 5 seconds -the heat releases the smell and makes it extra tasty!

I think the tuna needs to be in water, not oil or gel.

Blueeuenvey, do you let it cool off first then? Cats are not supposed to like hot (or cold) food. There may be exceptions though.
I also think they add salt for the preservation. Most (if not all?) canned products contain a lot of salt because of that.
