Can cats eat pumpkin?
Pumpkins are generally healthy – and packed with beneficial elements like fiber, calcium, vitamin A and vitamin C.
Thanks to the fiber, pumpkin is often considered a beneficial food for constipated cats — and it’s worth talking to your vet about whether your cat has these issues.
However, you should only give your cat the pumpkin as a treat, when it is cooked (rather than ripe), and once the prickly parts of the pumpkin such as the core, stem, or skin have been removed.

If your cat isn’t very picky, it may be tempting to allow her to eat several pumpkin-flavored foods, such as pumpkin pie—but stick with just plain pumpkin.
Stay away from pumpkin spiced in any form, as spices including cinnamon and many other spices are not suitable, and can even be harmful, your cunning friend.
