I have been feeding my cat turkey bacon for years without issue. Besides the fact that you have to make sure to take the bones out first for the cats not hurt themselves, you also have to be aware of how much turkey they consume. Pork is safe for cats to eat, although ham and bacon should be avoided.

One small slice of cooked bacon contains about 137.4 milligrams of sodium, which is close to ten times more than the daily recommended sodium intake for cats!healthy brand name cat foods provide all the sodium content a cat needs and extra sodium is never needed in a cat's diet.

Cats can eat turkey bacon but only as a small snack because its processing is a similar way as the one from pork and hence it has a lot of salt and may have other additives. Turkey bacon contains 14 grams of fat, while pork bacon contains 22 grams. Bacon is also a high fat food, and pretty greasy. They also contain high levels of grease and sodium.
