Customer Question

My cat loves to eat pineapple chunks. Is it o.k. for him to eat?

Does he digest it well, or does it give him diarrhea?

Reply to Artemis Platz's Post: It doesn't seem to effect his digestion. I just let him have a few bites of a half of chunk.

I think it's ok to indulge your cat in this treat, as long as you don't over-do it, and as long as your cat doesn't have digestive upset from it. Cats are not built to digest pineapple -they are carnivores- but if you are not seeing a problem, then the occasional treat is ok! There's nothing toxic about the pineapple for cats.

I hope this was helpful. Please let me know if you have more questions. I would be happy to talk further with you.
