Green olives and allspice contain chemicals similar to those found in catnip, so some felines may be particularly attracted, while others are not at all. Black olives, on the other hand, do not contain the same compounds. They are a food that is non-toxic and harmless to cats, but they have little nutritional value.
It is quite obvious that our friends being carnivores, in nature, they do not eat olives and therefore they don't need it for a balanced and healthy life. Their body can produce the amount of vitamin A and C they need through the consumption of meat from prey animals.
The olives, on the other hand, have medicinal benefits rather than nutritional. There are several varieties of them and most of them have compounds anti-inflammatory and antioxidants which can take care of your pet's free radicals, helping him against many diseases. In fact, olives prevent the appearance of cancer and cats suffering from feline arthritis they can benefit from their anti-inflammatory qualities, as they improve the animal's mobility and reduce pain.
Olives when you find them in nature are not poisonous, but the ones you buy have preservatives. One of these ingredients is a high amount of salt and this is very dangerous for cats. The salt present in some olives can take your cat beyond the necessary limit and sodium poisoning can be very dangerous.
THE symptoms municipalities of salt poisoning are vomiting, diarrhea, extreme thirst, excessive urination, loss of appetite, tremor, seizures and, if not treated promptly, this can seriously damage the kidneys of the cat and bring it to death. So, if you suspect your pet has ingested too much salt and is starting to show these symptoms, then you should definitely go for a run to a vet.
Washing the olives will not remove the excessive salt as you will only clean the amount present on the outside, so choose only unsalted olives if you want to give some to your furry friend. Another problem is the risk of suffocation given by the olive seed, always remove it if you give it to your cat.
