Feeding cat Haram food

 

Question:

asalamualaikum
Do you have to feed ur cat halal food?

 

Answer:

In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.

It is not permissible to feed such food that contains Haram ingredients such as Haram meat to your cat.[1]

You may consider buying pet food that does not include Haram ingredients or you may prepare some food yourself using Halal meat.

And Allah Ta’āla Knows Best
