Cat Food/Groon is a single by the band King Crimson, released in 1970. Track 1, "Cat Food," was taken from the album In the Wake of Poseidon and edited by about two minutes for its single release. The B-side "Groon" was largely improvised by band leader Robert Fripp and Michael and Peter Giles. CD editions of the Poseidon album from 2004 onwards have included both as bonus tracks.

The artwork on the original single release was done by lyricist Peter Sinfield.
