Make sure you cut it up into really small pieces though as large pieces are harder for cats to ingest.

Cooked sweet potato which has been cooled is easier for them to ingest as it has been softened and is not so hard on their throats.

Make sure they are washed thoroughly and the skin is peeled and stripped away before you feed it to them.

As you can see blackberries contain a hint of fat and salt, a little sugar and phosphorus, acidic content and calcium, and a lot of carbohydrates.

This means that they can eat blackberries. However, make sure they are fully washed before you feed them to your kitty. A few at a time is more than sufficient for your cat if they do take a liking to them. They are not a food that cats usually take a natural liking to, but you may have a kitty that takes a sudden interest in them.

However, they don’t offer a lot of nutritional value for your kitty and so they shouldn’t have too many.

Earing too many blackberries will give your cat diarrhea and may make them sick so do take a care in how many you feed them.

Feed them blackberries that have fully matured and are a dark black color. Do not feed them red blackberries as they have not fully developed as yet and will have an extremely sour taste.

The blackberry plant leaves are not harmful to cats either. They just shouldn’t have too much of them, if they do take a liking to them. However, cats are not usually that partial to green leaves.
