You might have fed your cat some of your favourite foods from time to time. Especially when you have that fascinating wrapped chocolate bar in your hand and your cat won’t refuse to stop trying to tear it open. But there are some food items that are a strict no-no for cats. So it is the time you tick the following off your list.
A little bit of chocolate in the right proportion might be good for your health, but not your kitty’s. Chocolate has a large amount of theobromine in its compounds and is said to cause a lot of toxic issues with a cat’s nervous system.
Your cat might love chicken and fish, but you need to shred them before your cat can have their meal. Bones splinter and cause cats to choke. Blockage in the intestinal track is another problem that can arise.
Hoomans love mushrooms in their pizza and pasta, but we assure you that your cat doesn’t. Mushrooms contain toxins like illudin that affects multiple systems in their body that sometimes causes shock and death.
It’s a misconception that cats can be fed raw fish when the truth is otherwise. Sushi is safe for humans thanks to their strong immunity system that fights diseases but they’re hazardous for cats and cause a breakdown of a certain vitamin B.
We’re talking nuts, beans, even certain vegetables. They damage the lining of the digestive system and are toxic to the kidneys and liver.
So make sure you keep your cat away from these and ensure them a happy health!
