Did you know that some human foods can actually kill your cat? Learn more about forbidden snacks!

Cats have lived along side humans for thousands of years. Like other delines, cats are carnivorous, meaning that the basis of their diet is animal protein. In the wild, wild cats (and often domestic ones) hunt small animals for food. In our homes, their nutritional needs are met through appropriate feeds, whether dry, pates or sachets of various brands and flavors.

The temptation to please our feline companion, to offer him a "little treat" or something that escapes his routine is sometimes great but did you know that some common human foods can actually kill your cat?

Here is a list of foods that your cat should never eat!

  • Onion
  • Garlic
  • Raw Eggs
  • Alcohol
  • Fermented dough (ex: dough or cake)
  • Raw fish (contains bacteria that destroy thiamine or vitamin B1)
  • Green Tomatoes
  • Potatoes
  • Chocolate
  • Dairy
  • Tea and coffee (high caffeine content)
  • Xylitol
  • Avocado
  • Grapes and raisins
  • Other diets that despite containing animal protein are not recommended for cats (ex: dog food)
