Can Cats Eat Honeydew Melon
If your cat belongs to the group of felines who are immensely fascinated towards this fleshy, juicy melon, then feel free to satisfy its craving once in a while since honeydew melon is nontoxic to cats when given in moderation. However, make it a point to remove the seeds before providing them with the fruit since they are high in cyanides which are toxic to cats. You should also give it to them in small chunks to avoid any choking hazard.
