Is chunk light okay to give every once in awhile? I know it's bad for cats...

It is high in mercury and salt. I wouldn't use it as part of a regular diet. In an emergency it is just fine though.

Jack Mackerel or sardines in water would be better, but if it's all you've got, it'll have to do.

Thanks guys, I kinda just wanted to give them a snack last night. It was chunk light in water, so at least the mercury level is way lower. I also rinsed it thoroughly in hot water (in the drainer) to get rid of the excess salt. Hopefully that made it a little better! Definitely won't be a an all-the-time treat though.

Gotmercury.org has a mercury calculator. If 50 pound Lily ate 6 ounces, it would be 126% of the safe mercury allotment. We use canned salmon. It has 0%.
