Many pet owners love to give their dogs and cats a little taste of whatever they are eating, and the animals usually love it. However, there are some foods which should never be fed to certain pets, as they can be unhealthy, harmful, or even deadly.
What about raspberries? Are raspberries bad for cats?
Well, not really…but they aren’t very good for cats either.
You see, cats are actually carnivores, which means that their bodies are designed to get nutritional value exclusively from meats, rather than from fruits and vegetables. This means that things such as raspberries are not naturally part of a cat’s diet.
It’s not a bad thing to feed your cat a few raspberries now and then, but it definitely should not become a part of your cat’s regular diet. Not only will it not give them the nutritional value that they need, but in larger quantities, certain berries can give cats upset stomachs and diarrhea.
