In the desire and interest of eating healthily, most people are seeking out organically or locally grown foods and are carefully reading the labels. Some pet owners want to know if their cats can eat fresh produce. Most animal experts are considered cats as strict carnivores so it may not be always necessary to give your dog with fruits or anything that is not meat. Before feeding your cat with anything especially those foods from your own plate, you should care to ask your vet first if these foods are safe for your feline friend to eat.

Though there are some vegetables and fruits that are not harmful to cats, most of them are and should be avoided.

By nature, cats are meat eaters or carnivores and their systems are unable to metabolize fruits like human. It is very important that as a dog owner you learn the different types of fruits or parts of them that can be harmful or toxic to cats. For example, only fruits of apricots and apples are advisable for cats. The roots, leaves and stem of it are unsafe for them to eat as it can cause vomiting and appetite loss.

If you like cherries, you will be glad to know that this fruit is safe for cats. Just make sure your cat won’t eat its leaves. Other fruits like avocadoes are potentially dangerous for cats. That is because this fruit contains persin, a chemical found be medical researchers to be dangerously toxic and can damage the heart of your cat. Some varieties of avocadoes are unsafe or toxic to pets. Citrus fruits such as orange, lemon or like and their oil extracts are also known to be toxic to cats. These fruits are unhealthy for your cat including the fruit itself, the seeds and peelings. When ingested, they can cause diarrhea or vomiting.

Grapes and raisins are also among those fruits that you should not allow your cat to eat as these fruits can cause damage to their kidney. The pits of plums and peaches as well as the seeds of persimmons can obstruct the digestive tract of your poor kitty.

Any plant that is toxic to cats both the fruit and the plant itself must be avoided. They include chokeberry, blackberries, elderberries, wild black cherry and others.

Aside from fruits, there are also veggies that are not safe for your cat to eat. Onions for instance can cause anemic conditions in cats. Potatoes are also not healthy for them as they may cause problems in intestines and brain. Spinach can also create some troubles in the urinary tract of your cat.

Cats should not be given with anything that has dairy such as milk, cheese and ice cream. While you might think that these treats are great for your cat, in reality they can seriously harm your cat. Always ask your vet for advice first on what human foods you can give your cat. List down those ideal fruits for cat and those that you should never give them at all cost.
