Can Cats Eat Strawberries

Do cats eat strawberries

As cats are not receptive enough to sweet-tasting foods, they might not be extremely fond of strawberry. However, the fragrance and color of the fruit might catch their attention, compelling them to grab the ones growing in your garden or take a lick of any tasty strawberry treat lying on the table.

Is it good for cats to have strawberries

Strawberries have high antioxidant properties and are also rich in a whole lot of nutrients like vitamins (B6, B9, C, E, and K), dietary fibers and minerals (potassium, manganese, and magnesium).

However, since they should not eat more than a tiny morsel of it, these benefits would not hold much good for them.

Are strawberries bad for cats

Though they are not poisonous, overconsumption may lead to stomach disorders. Moreover, since they are high in sugar, the fruit might not be a healthy option particularly for those that are obese or diabetic.

If your cat chews or comes in contact with strawberry leaves, they might be at the risk of developing allergies.

In case it vomits, has loose motion, itching or displays any other symptoms after having strawberries that do not seem normal take him to the veterinarian at once.
