You may wonder if it’s a good idea to give them a little bit of your sandwich. Or better yet, if it’s possible to offer them a dollop of the smooth and creamy spread as a treat.
This raises the following questions – can cats eat peanut butter? Are there any nutritional benefits? How much of it is bad for them?
Will your cat be okay if they accidentally help themselves to whatever peanut butter might be lying out on the kitchen counter?
The short answer is no. Peanut butter is not a good snack for cats. It isn’t toxic to them but it isn’t beneficial for them either.
The only time it is suggested to give your cat peanut butter is when they’ve got medication to take. Peanut butter allows whatever tablets to remain intact while your kitty eats it.
There are toys available that can hold catnip, this wonderful teeth-cleaning toy is a great way to get their minds off of the Skippy.
If your cat does eat peanut butter by mistake, there’s no need to panic. Just make sure that they’re drinking fluids and monitor them.
