Cat hair that fell into food

Question:

If you accidentally eat a cat hair that falls into your food, did you eat non kosher? I found a cat hair in something I was eating and I took it out right away, but I’m nervous what if I accidentally ate a different one and don’t even know about it. (It’s from my cat, not a random occurrence) How careful do I need to be to make totally sure I never accidentally get cat hair in food? (Obviously it’s gross to eat a cat hair and I’m careful to keep the cat away when I’m eating for sanitary reasons anyway the best I can, but if it’s ALSO a kashrus thing, then obviously I’m going to be much, much, much more careful.) If it IS a kashrus thing, is it the same as eating an actual cat? (Sorry, I might be a little overly anxious about this, but I’m doing my best to obey Hashem, so I’m asking.)

Thanks.

 

Answer:

Hello,

Cat hair is not food and is therefore not in the category of non kosher food.

All the best
