I agree. Tuna juice is completely harmless. As noted some cats don't
like it, and in general cats should not be given too much seafood.
We had a situation a couple of decades ago where we had run out of
just about every item of food in the house including cat food and
couldn't buy any more. (evacuation zone) All that was left was tins
of sardines and tuna (and beans.) All the cat food was gone. Our cat
at the time didn't like tuna and wouldn't touch the stuff even when it
was being opened for her consumption. And sardines were even more of
a no-go for Crystal and are certainly not recommened for cats in
general, though those in plain water can be given as a treat.
