An occasional bite of dog food won't hurt your cat. But dog food is not a substitute for cat food. They do have many of the same ingredients. But cat food is specially formulated for a cat's needs, which include more protein as well as certain vitamins and fatty acids.

That includes grains.

So, while most dogs do very well eating a grain free diet, these diets are not required in terms of metabolization.
