Everyone likes healthy snacks, including our pets and with watermelon coming into season, it seems as good a time as any to pull out the cute pictures of, you guessed it, cats and watermelons!

But, before we get too far along, it is important to know that while watermelon is a great treat for any pet, you do need to make sure that you remove the seeds so they are not ingested.  In fact, PetMD has a great article that includes the following list of both healthy snacks and those your should avoid, in the form of fruits and vegetables:

Yes:

  • Apples – without seeds or core (apple seeds contain chemical compounds that are poisonous to animals)
  • Blueberries
  • Strawberries
  • Watermelon – without seeds
  • Cantaloupe
  • Frozen bananas
  • Green beans
  • Carrots – raw or cooked
  • Sweet potato – cooked, cubed or mashed without butter or seasoning; regular potatoes are also good, but in limited amounts since they are high in sugar and can increase weight
  • Squash, zucchini
  • Lettuce
  • Spinach
  • Popcorn – unsalted and unbuttered
  • Catnip or cat grass

No:

  • Grapes and raisins – contain chemical compounds that are toxic to dogs
  • Garlic and onions – both have chemical properties that can be toxic, and even life threatening to dogs and cats
  • Tomatoes
  • Avocado
  • Mushrooms – particularly wild mushrooms
  • Fruits with pits, such as peaches, cherries, and plums – in some cases the pit can be toxic, or can simply present a choking hazard
  • Nuts – particularly macadamia nuts, which are toxic to pets
