List Of Foods Cats Cant Eat

We have made a list of foods cats cant eat, let’s have a look.

1: Cats cant eat chocolates

Do you love chocolate?

Well, who doesn’t like this food?

But not in the case of animals like in the case of dogs, chocolate should be kept miles away from them. It contains THEOBROMINE which is no less than venom.

Dark and unsweetened chocolates do jobs like secret killers who don’t leave their prey alive.


Muscle tremors, seizures or even death. Chocolates also contain caffeine which is also very harmful to felines.

2: Cats cant eat raw meat

Are you finding some resemblance between cats and human foods?

Here you got one.

Seriously, because as humans can’t eat raw meat, cats are also prohibited to not eat it.

The major pathogen in raw meat is salmonella which is toxic for the cat’s stomach and can cause some serious problems.

3: Cats cant drink alcohol

Talking about humans, alcohol directly affects the brain and liver. The same case is seen in cats, but it effects more abruptly in feline cases.

About two teaspoons of whiskey can drive a 5-pound cat into a coma and three tablespoons would be fatal.

4: Cat cant eat mushrooms

I think you too also know that there are some types of mushrooms toxic for humans, cats, and dogs if taken as proper food.

Am I right?

Wild mushrooms especially contain toxins that may develop diarrhea, vomiting and liver damage.

Symptoms may not be visible after 6-24 hours, but they do cause severe effects on the health of cats. If not treated in time, it may lead to liver failure.

5: Cats cant eat dairy products

Surely, you have seen cartoons TOM and JERRY,

in which Tom is always seen drinking milk.

Isn’t it?

Here lies the difference.

Cats develop lactose intolerance to milk when they get older, and other dairy foods like cortege cheese and yogurt are only tolerable in small amounts.

So, it’s not a good idea to feed them milk.

6: Cats cant eat onions and garlic

The entire family of onions is in a way dangerous for cats if feed as a proper diet. If you are feeding small chunks of it then it may not cause any damage.

But enough quantity will prohibit nourishment and may lead to anemia.

how can i eat these risky foods

7: Cats cant eat grapes and raisins

Grapes are a much toxic diet so are raisins. They can cause kidney failure.

Signs of grapes and raisins intake include vomiting.

8: Cats cant eat fats and bones

People give many dollars to their gym trainer to burn fats.

Isn’t it right?

While everyone is eager to give away fats, it means it is harmful to health and nourishment. Fats both cooked and uncooked is dangerous as a diet, for it can lead to intestinal upsets with vomiting and diarrhea.

Taking in bones is also in either way fatal food for cats because bones can make severe cuts inside of the digestive tract while passing through it.

So, it’s a big no for fats and bones food from me.

9: Cats cant eat raw eggs

Take a pencil and notebook and note down two reasons why we should not give raw egg food to cats.


Giving to our furball raw egg is, first of all, a mere foolish act. Because giving cats raw eggs can lead to Salmonella. Symptoms of Salmonella include diarrhea, lethargy, and vomiting.


This enzyme only remains in a raw egg state. As the egg is cooked it disappears. If the cat eats the raw egg, then the presence of avidin will lead to a decrease in absorption of B vitamin called Biotin. This can cause skin and hair cot abnormalities in cats.

10: Cats cant eat yeast dough

When we place dough in the oven it rises the maximum of its size. This phenomenon happens exactly in the stomach. When accidentally eaten by your cat it can cause severe stomach pain.

Do you know what yeast does?

Yeast helps the dough to rise through the process of fermentation.

When taken by your cat yeast food does the same function in the stomach. During fermentation, it produces alcohol that can cause alcohol poising.

11: Cats cant eat caffeine

It is found in chocolate, tea, coffee, etc.

Caffeine can cause to your feline partner restlessness, rapid breathing and heart palpitations.

If accidentally taken in large amounts it can even cause death.

12: Cat cant eat xylitol

It starts with the letter ‘’X’’ which gives us an impression of danger, Keep yourself away from me.

And exactly it works the same. Xylitol is venom for cats.

It is present in food like chocolates, candies, gum, toothpaste, bake, and diet foods.

Xylitol abruptly decreases sugar level by increasing the insulin level.

After-effects of xylitol intake are lethargy, vomiting and sometimes loss of coordination.
