It is not said that a cat gets sick immediately if you give her anything other than food and sweets for cats. However, our food often contains too much sugar and too much salt. That is not healthy for us and certainly not for cats. Apart from sugar and too much salt, you should also avoid the following products.
What Can My Cat Not Eat? Toxic Food For Cats
1- Onions and Garlic: Onions contain the substance allylpropyldisulfide, which destroys the red blood cells of the cats. This leads to a form of anemia. Garlic also contains this substance, but to a lesser extent.
2- Grapes and raisins: Although fruit for cats is generally not bad, it is better not to give them any grapes (or raisins). They contain a substance that is bad for cats. It is not yet known which substance is the culprit. Prevention is better than cure.
3- Raw egg: Do not give your cat any raw eggs. Eggs contain avidin, an anti-vitamin that adversely affects the metabolism of fats, sugars, amino acids and energy.
4- Milk and Dairy Products: Most cats are lactose intolerant. This means that lactose (milk sugar) and dairy products cause bloating in your cat.
5- Chocolate and Caffeinated Drinks: Theobromine is a substance in chocolate that is extremely toxic to cats. It can lead to diarrhea, vomiting, restlessness and (in extreme cases) cramps.
6- Spiced / marinated meat and fish: Avoid giving your cat meat or fish that is seasoned or marinated in any way. Spices often contain onions or garlic, which is bad for your cat’s red blood cells and can cause anemia.
7- Alcohol and Raw Dough: As little as a tablespoon of alcohol can lead to problems for your cat. It can cause severe liver and brain damage. Alcoholic beverages and foods that contain alcohol can be dangerous for your cat. Ingestion can cause vomiting, diarrhea, tremors, disorientation, trouble breathing, coma, and even death.
8- Plants: Some plants can be poisonous for your cat, such as the lily, yew, tulip, holly, apricot, azalea and arum.
