We all love sharing our food with our felines, but not everything is kitty safe. Trupanion’s Chief Veterinary Officer, Dr. Kerri Marshall has a list of holiday goodies you can safely give to your cat. She recommends you give pets these foods in moderation and without any added sugars, salts, or butter.
#1 – Apple
Apples are safe in moderation and pet owners should remove the seeds first, she says. Make sure the pieces are small enough that your cat can’t choke on them.
#2 – Pumpkin
We all know pumpkin is good for your cat. Just make sure you are not giving them pumpkin pie, which is loaded with sugar.
#3 – Sweet potato
Like pumpkin, sweet potato is very healthy. Just leave out the butter, brown sugar, and marshmallows that we like so well.
