Food that is harmful and dangerous for your cat

What is good catfood for proper nutrition and hydrationBad food for Cats

Some cats are real beggars when it comes to food. Some human food is harmless to give to a cat, but other types of food are very dangerous. We have made a list of some of the most dangerous food for cats, and a list about what you should also never feed a cat.

Milk

Cats love milk! This is true, but although milk is good for kittens, it is bad for adult cats. After their kitten-period, a cats digestive system stops processing milk, because in the wild a adult cat won’t be able to get milk. Because of this, adult cats can not digest milk- or other dairy products, causing diarrhea and/or dehydration.

Tuna

Although not a harmful food, feeding your cat tuna-only can be harmful. Because tuna lacks a lot of nutrition that cats require and get from meat-products, your cat can get sick or weak from a tuna-only diet. So some tuna occasionally is fine, just don’t make it a habit.

Onions (and other vegetables)

Onions are also a no-no for your cat. Onions break down the red blood cells of your cat and this can cause anaemia. Other vegetables and spices can also be harmful. Since your cat can not get any nutrition from vegetables, it is useless to feed it to your cat and should be avoided.

Grapes and Wine

Grapes, grape-juice, raisins, wine et cetera are very bad for cats. The acid in the juice can cause kidney damage among other health problems. And wine is even worse, because it contains alcohol, which is also very bad for cats.

Chocolate

Another very bad food for cats is chocolate. Basically, chocolate is poison for cats, the active agent causing this is called theobromine. All types of chocolate contain this, including white chocolate, dark chocolate, milk chocolate and chocolate powders.

Raw meat

There has been a lot of debate whether raw meat is good or bad for a cat. It goes both ways, it’s good because it is not processes and purely natural, and it is something that cats have been eating for thousands of years.

On the other hand, raw meat can contain bacteria that is harmful for cats. When meat is cooked, the bacteria dies. If you want more information about proper food and nutrition, see our article on this.

Other common things worth mentioning

Some things should obviously never be fed to cats, but veterinarians still take in cats that digested some strange items. Here are some thing you should never give your cat:

  • Alcohol
  • Spices
  • Human Medicines
  • Caffeine
  • Tobacco
  • Food for other pets (like dog-food, bird-food, fish-food)
  • Eggs
  • Bones (choking danger)
  • Candy and sugars
