Hi I have taken in a stray cat back in November. I haven't owned a cat since I was very young so I'm still learning things as I go.

Here's my million dollar question can cats eat peanuts? My cat loses his mind when I pull out the peanuts, I dropped one and it was hoovered up. I know cats arn't supposed to eat them but can it hurt him if he has one?

Thanks ahead of time for your help!

That's funny you bring this up, something that I'd consider kind of rare? Because I posted about peanuts just the other day in the What's New, Pussycat? Forum!! http://www.thecatsite.com/forums/sho...d.php?t=196189 Looking elsewhere online and on here, it doesn't seem that peanuts are bad for cats, I guess like other treats it's best in moderation.

But yeah, peanuts!?!? I think Genever would eat a bowl of them like she eats dry food if I'd let her!

At least Ricky isn't alone on the weird food thing

Just be careful how many are given. The peanuts themselves are fine but they're often roasted with a lot of salt, or sugar and honey.

My Molly would love to get a taste of a peanut, too, but I won't let her because of the high salt content. Unless they are unsalted, I would be sure not to let a cat have them very often.

Well our dog and cats like peanut butter and have eaten a few peanuts and they are both healthy. An occasional one or two will not hurt. Don't give them grapes, raisins, or chocolate or onions.
