Can Cats Eat Apples?

can cats eat apples
Cats can indeed have apples, as long as you remove the apple seeds.

Apples can actually be a healthy snack for your cat. Most cats will love the taste of apples, but don’t be shocked if your cat doesn’t want to eat them, because some cats just wont like the taste.

If you are giving your cat apple, you should also peel it, or wash it very well. Although the pesticides used on apples are not harmful to humans, since cats are much smaller, they can potentially be harmful.

Some cats can also have an allergy to apples. If it is the first time you are giving your cat some apples as cat food, you should watch them carefully. Start by giving a vary small slice of the apple. If thy like it, watch them for a couple minutes, and make sure they do not start acting strangely. If they are ok, feel free to give them some more.

Like all other foods, apples should be given to cats in moderation. Too much apple can cause an upset stomach.

    Funny, my cat always begs me for apple when I cut into one. Then if I give her a piece she just smalls it and walks away. I don’t think she actually likes them.

    I have heard most cats do not like apples because they taste too sour to them.

    How about apple sauce?

    • pets says:

      They can eat apple sauce if it is made from pure apple. Most sauce however has other ingredients in it. Make sure you check out the other ingredients before giving any to your cat.

    If anyone left an apple unattended, sitting on their bed, dresser, tv stand, kitchen counter, kitchen table, coffee table or in their unzipped purse, my cat George would take actual bites out of it. She loved apples more than her treats! I miss her :S

    Bought some apples and caramel today. My cats usually want what ever my dog and I have; so I cut a few slices for my 98lb AMbulldog and some for my cats. While he demolished his apples, my cats just smelled them and walked away. They usually come back to what ever they have but my dog loves apples so he cleaned up behind his sisters. Lol
