Fun Fact: Even though cats cannot taste sweets, they can still enjoy the amazing health benefits that blueberries have to offer. Blueberries are proven to help control your cat’s sugar levels because they are rich in vitamins A and C, dietary fiber, and calcium. Also, the antioxidants from blueberries can help protect your cat from free radicals. Ask your veterinarian about how to include blueberries to your cat’s diet.
