Don’t Feed Your Cat These Foods!

Things that should not get into your cats tummy.

Hello, cat parents! Have you ever thought about feeding your cat with anything other than its dry food diet? Or you find out that your cat fancies some specific human’s foods? If so, you need to be careful since not all human foods are safe for your cat.

Before you give your cat other food than its diet, you need to know some of our food can be poisonous for the cat. If your cat accidentally eats that, your cat can get sick or even some of them can lead to their deaths. So, that’s why you need to know what kinds of food that dangerous for your cat.

Here’s the list of foods that you should not feed your cat:

Chocolate

To humans, chocolate is tasty. However, for cats, chocolate can kill them. Chocolate has a substance called methylxanthines. It can cause diarrhea, vomiting, muscle tremors, abnormal heart rhythm, increased thirst, and seizures. Besides chocolate, caffeinated drinks also contain methylxanthines. If you have some chocolate or caffeinated drinks in your house, please store them in the place where your cat can’t find them.

Raw Meat and Egg

Meat and egg are rich in protein, a nutrient that cats need most. However, raw meat and egg can contain Salmonella and E. coli bacteria. The two bacteria, if consumed by the cat, can poison it. Raw eggs also have an enzyme called avidin that can lead to skin and hair problems.

Dairy Products

Fun fact, the majority of cats are lactose intolerant. Their digestive system can’t process dairy products. Dairy products can cause diarrhoea and an upset stomach for your cat. 

Raw Dough

If you are a baker or like to bake, make sure you don’t put your raw dough where your cat can reach it. The raw dough will expand within time, so if your cat accidentally consumes it, the raw dough will enlarge inside your cat’s digestive system.

Those are some food that you shouldn’t feed your cat. Hopes this is informative and helpful for you.
