Well, to be honest no fruit or vegetables will make a great deal of difference to a cat!

Cats have very different dietary needs to humans, and therefore don't need their five-a-day of fruit and vegetables to stay healthy.

Cats are primarily carnivores - although they do eat grass when they are ill.

They need high levels of protein to stay healthy, and therefore eat vast quantities of meat, which should contain all the goodness they will ever need.

Our last cat lived to the age of nineteen, and we never fed her any fruit or vegetables - just regular cat food!

Although most fruit and vegetables won't do much harm to your cat, they won't do much good either.

List of foods which are poisonous to cats:
  • Alcohol.
  • Apple seeds.
  • Cheery pits.
  • Chocolate.
  • Some candies.
  • Coffee.
  • Grapes.
  • Hops.
  • Macadamia nuts.
  • Moldy foods.
  • Mushrooms.
  • Mustard seeds.
  • Onions.
  • Peach pits.
  • Potato leaves and stems.
  • Raisins.
  • Rhubarb leaves.
  • Salt.
  • Tea.
  • Tomato leaves and stems.
  • Walnuts.
  • Yeast dough.

Although, it is commonly believed that milk is good for cats, because they really enjoy it - it isn't. Cats are lactose intolerant, which means that their bodies find it difficult to process lactose products such as milk. It will most probably cause the cat to have rather runny stools.

I have one cat that loves cantaloupe, banana, and grapefruit. The other cats try to bury the same stuff.
