Q. Why do cats go crazy over green olives?
LAURA E. MCRAE
A. Every cat has his/her own preferences and tastes. I personally do not know any cats that like green olives; however, I do know cats that want to eat fruit, peanut butter, popcorn, and a variety of other human foods. Your cats may find the saltiness of the olives appealing, which is a good reason not to indulge their tastes. In general, it is best to avoid feeding feeding human food to our cats, except the occasional treat of boiled/cooked chicken or turkey (with no seasoning).
