Is there any breed or specie of wildcats that do?

    No.  Cats are obligate carnivores and have ZERO need for fruits or vegetables no matter what the shitty pet food companies tell you.

    All cats eat vegetables at times. All of them. Wild or domesticated. They eat more meat and protein, but they always round out their diets with what vegetables they can find, too.

    cats will vegetables but this is not their main food. As cats are obligate carnivores. Sometimes they will eat some vegetables ,grass, fruit.

    NO.  Cats are meat eaters and require a meat diet, not a vegeterian diet.  They may eat some veggies at times, but don't eat them in the wild.

    Cats are obligate carnivores... They NEED meat

    Some might snack on houseplants, eat cat grass or catnip.. But they get almost no nutrients from it.

    My cat eats turnip greens if he's hungry enough.

      Does he do that if he has a good meat meal available?

    No, they are all meat eaters, domestic cats sometimes eat small amounts of grass to make them be sick, to get rid of hairballs.

    Only grasses as a natural stomach aid, but that's about it. None of the bigger cats or their small wild cousins naturally eat any grains, fruits, or vegetation besides grasses. The cats that we have as pets, feral or abandoned strays are becoming more and more opportunistic, meaning they will eat whatever they can find. They will always go for meat, hunting mice and birds, of course, but they will eat something if they can chew it.

    Cats are CARNIVORES. They don't eat plants, they only eat meat.

    Unless you're talking about a domestic kitty with catnip, but they don't eat that to survive.

    Well, catnip is a plant.
