|My first cat, Sassy, LOVED cantalope. She would eat it off of a fork. She loved for me to let her lick the juice out of the bottom of a bowl when I was done.
As for other "human" foods, yes, some are toxic, and it's important to know which ones are, and yes, a lot of processed people food is bad for cats, just like it is for humans, but as in everything, moderation is okay. Sassy also loved carbohydrates--didn't matter what kind. She liked Ritz crackers, saltines, Honey Nut Cheerios, the works. I'd let her have very small portions (assuming I could keep her from stealing a cracker out of the sleeve). It did not appear to stunt her growth or shorten her life much. She lived to the ripe old age of 17.
