Is It Permissible to Purchase Cat Food?

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Seekersguidance.org

Answered by Shaykh Abdul-Rahim Reasat

Question: Assalamu alaykum

Is it permissible to purchase cat food?

Answer: Wa ‘alaykum as-salam

I pray you are well.

Yes, it is permissible to purchase cat food and feed it to a pet cat, even if it contains unslaughtered meat. Usually, it is impermissible to buy unslaughtered meat and impure items, however, there is a clear benefit in this case so it would be permissible. This is akin to a farmer buying manure, which is technically impure. (Fiqh al-Buyuʿ).

May Allah give you the best of both worlds.
