Vegetables.

Yeah so for some reason, my cats really love vegetables. Especially maxwell. He really enjoys potatoes and potatoes skins. I was just wondering if there are any certain vegetables i should advoid that could hurt them. im not talking about giving them gas or anything. i mean something that could poision them or cause intestinal problems. i dont just give them veggies all the time, but whenever I eat them they are always begging so I usually give them some or let them eat the steams of whatever.

So far I've found they love

Carrots, Broccoli, Potatoes, Brussel Sprots, spinach, and Califlower

they dont care for peas or corn it seams though.

could any of these cause any serious problems?? and i don't add alot of butter or salt or anything i pretty much eat them steamed/raw or baked potatoes. So there not unhealthy I guess.


just wondering I've heard onions are poisionus to cats but maxwell ate some onion before and hes fine o_O

Thank you I kept trying to find out for myself but everything kept contridicting each other. One place told me onions and garlic are very healthy for cats and can be fed as a treat, and another tells me it will kill them. So weird.

My cats mainly like green vegetables though. It's usually just maxwell eating them though.
