What Not to Feed your Cat

Whether by Choice or By Accident

It's hard to believe that an animal that manages to consume an entire mouse is considered to have a delicate digestive system when it comes to a number of potential food items. As strange as it might seem, such is the case with cats.

The often-cited food items to avoid feeding your cat include:

  • Bones
  • Chocolate
  • Dog-food-only diets
  • Large amounts of tuna
  • Onions
  • Raw eggs
  • Raw meat, including fish

The reality is that there's a substantial amount of other foods that shouldn't be given to your cat. As is the case with the previously mentioned foods, not all of these items are toxic or have immediate side effects. Some simply cause such things as stomach disturbances or they must be consumed in large quantities over a lengthy time-period before any negative effects will be noticed. Therefore, the following items should be added to the above list of foods:

  • Citrus-containing food items
  • Garlic
  • Grapes and raisins
  • Liver
  • Macadamia nuts
  • Meat fat scraps
  • Milk
  • Mushrooms
  • Other caffeine containing products besides chocolate
  • Potatoes
  • Rhubarb
  • Tomatoes

While common sense dictates the avoidance of certain foods, beverages, and "other items," we'll mention the fact that the following items should never be given to your cat for consumption (no, we're not kidding) or possible accidental ingestion:

  • Alcohol
  • Antifreeze
  • Aspirin
  • Iron supplements
  • Marijuana
  • Moldy food
  • Tobacco

For additional information about what other chemicals, foods, medications, and plants you should minimize your cat's contact with, please refer to our article entitled "Tips for Pet-Proofing your Home: Suggestions on How to Make and Keep Kitty Safe."
