Human Foods that Can Hurt Your Cat

Many of the same foods that pose a health risk for dogs are also dangerous for cats. Why then is the topic of feeding human foods to cats so rarely discussed?

My guess is that owners simply assume that a cat’s discriminating palate will prevent any problems from developing. Sometimes this proves to be the case, but in other instances, cats have eaten enough of a “forbidden food” to become ill. Following are the top three types of human foods that I tell clients never to feed their cats.

  1. Onions, Garlic, Leeks, and Chives
  2. Grapes and Raisins
  3. Chocolate
