Your cat is interested in the fruit you bought at the farmer's market... However, do cats consume fruit? Is it safe for them?
Cats, as obligate carnivores, do not require fruit. Because cats' tongues lack sweet taste receptors, they cannot taste fruit. They can still eat fruits.
Fruits that are safe for cats include apples, bananas, blueberries, cantaloupe, strawberries, and seedless watermelon. Also safe are raspberries, blackberries, and cranberries.
If you want to give your cat some of one of these safe fruits, do so in moderation and by cutting it into small, bite-size pieces.
Fruit feeding is an enjoyable activity to enjoy with your cat. If your cat is addicted to artificial treats and wants to lose weight, you can substitute fruit for them.
Avoid citrus fruits like lemons, limes, and oranges because they can cause gastrointestinal distress and, in large doses, a depression of the central nervous system.
Cherries, grapes, and raisins, however, should never be fed to a cat, as they can cause renal damage or even death.
In other words, avoid these dangerous fruits at all costs, and consult your veterinarian before giving your cat new foods.
