True carnivores are not the same as omnivores

True carnivores are animals that subsist on a diet consisting of meat. They may consume other products presented to them, especially animal products like cheese and bone marrow, or sweet sugary substances like honey and syrup; however, as these products are not essential to their existence, they do not need to consume them on a regular basis.

It's also said that true carnivores lack the physiology required for the efficient digestion of vegetable matter, and in fact some carnivorous mammals eat vegetation specifically as an emetic (vomiting) or forceful expulsion of the contents of the stomach.
