|Raw egg yolks and cooked egg whites are a part of the recipe that I use for my cats' food. Anne from catnutrition.org wrote the recipe and it's wonderful. I never have any problems from the eggs. So I would imagine if your cat likes eggs, it's perfectly fine to use them as a treat, just not raw egg white.
I'm a vegetarian too (I wrote an entry about this in Emily's Catster diary a couple weeks ago), and I'm all majorly icked-out by raw meat. My cats get a partially cooked diet (roasted whole chicken pulled off the bone, raw egg yolk, raw chicken liver, with some supplements including food-grade bone meal for calcium). I can't feed them a completely raw diet right now because it makes me squeamish, but I'm working up to it. I'm in the process of looking for reasonably priced organic free-range chicken for their food. As a vegetarian, I don't want to support factory farms, but I also want to do what's best for my cats. It's kind of a dilemma.
Sorry to get off topic...um...eggs are fine. I get this way when I talk to other vegetarians about cat food, please bear with me
