Reasons to Not Feed Your Cat Sweet Potatoes

Sweet Potato

We wouldn’t let your cat eat sweet potatoes although a tiny amount is unlikely to cause any harm to your cat’s health. Sweet potatoes aren’t considered toxic to cats but a cat’s digestive system will have a hard time processing it.

Cats that eat sweet potatoes may get affected by a temporary stomach upset. They may show symptoms like diarrhea and vomiting if they eat too many pieces. Make sure your cat is never able to eat pieces of raw sweet potatoes or parts of the sweet potato that aren’t the flesh, such as the vine.
