Can Cats Eat Pumpkin for Health?

Pumpkin provides vitamin A, C and E antioxidants. It’s low calorie, high fiber to reduce hairballs.


Cook fresh pumpkin by baking, steaming or microwaving until soft. Don't add sugar or spices which can be unsafe.  


Give pumpkin as an occasional snack or meal mixer for variety, not everyday. Start with tiny amounts to avoid stomach issues.

Feed Occasionally   

 If your cat licks bowl clean or begs for more, they likely enjoy and tolerate pumpkin well.
