10 Things NOT to Feed Your Cat! :-(
1) Chocolate, coffee, tea or caffeine: these foods and drinks contain substances that can cause severe or even fatal heart or nervous system problems and should never be given.
2) Canned tuna for human consumption or raw fish: when fed exclusively or in hight amounts can cause thiamine deficiency similar to dogs.
3) Grapes, raisins, or currants: contain an unknown toxin that can cause kidney failure.
4) Nuts: some nuts like macadamia nuts contain an unknown toxin causing intestinal, nervous sytem or muscle problems.  Also if swallowed can cause a bowel obstruction.
5) Xylitol gub or candy: can cause severe low blood sugar or liver failure.
6) Baby food: many times contains onion powder, which can cause anemia - when fed exclusively in large quantities.  Also is not completely balanced for a cat.
7) Onions and Garlic raw, cooked or powder: contain sulfoxides and disulfides which cause anemia.  Cats are more sensitive than dogs, and onion is more toxic than garlic.
8) Dog food: if fed repeatedly causes taurine deficiency, which can cause malnutrition and heart disease.
9) Bones: can cause obstruction or lacerations of the digestive system.
10) Raw meat: may contain ecoli or salmonella causing diarrhea or vomiting.
