Why does my cat love lettuce? If your cat loves lettuce and greens, these can be a great source of water, bulk, and nutrients. In my experience, some cats crave these greens and some couldn’t care less.
How much lettuce can a cat eat? A good rule of thumb is to begin by offering a tiny piece of lettuce the size of your fingernail. Once you know that your cat can cope with lettuce without any adverse signs, you can try increasing the amount. However, even if they enjoy it, it’s best not to give more than four or five small pieces at a time.
What leafy vegetables can cats eat? Superb vegetables to offer your cat are chopped carrots, peas, frozen corn, broccoli florets, green beans, zucchini, lettuce, spinach, winter squash, and pumpkin. This produce should be cooked (steamed is best) since felines, just like us humans, lack a sufficient way to break down plant cell walls.
Can cats have iceberg lettuce? Iceberg lettuce: One of the most common lettuce varieties, iceberg lettuce, is safe for your cat. It has little nutrition but it does have a high water content. It’s safe in small amounts, but too much can cause diarrhea in your cat from the high-water content.
