Most people fail to understand what is, and what is not good to feed your cats. Let there be no confusion about this. Human food is the leading cause of illness or death to animals around the holiday seasons. This is quite sad when our children did something that seemed so innocent and ended so tragically.
So below is a list of Do Not Feed Items for your pet.

1) Chocolate and other foods containing caffeine. In caffeine there is an alkaloid called theobromine. This can cause in some cases, severe cardiac arrest and nervous system damage to animals.

2) Onions and garlic contain thiosulphate, which can damage red blood cells and cause anemia in cats and dogs.

3) No milk. Some animals are lactose intolerant. As a result some animals can create a breeding ground for bacteria. This causes vomiting and diarrhea.

4) Other human foods to avoid when feeding your pet are: macadamia nuts, potato peelings and green-looking potatoes, rhubarb leaves, moldy/spoiled foods, alcohol, yeast dough, tomato leaves and stems, broccoli, and raisins or grapes.

So, the next time your pet looks up at you with sad eyes, show him you care. Do what is truly best, by feeding them only products meant for pet consumption. In the end your pet will be happy and healthier .
