Most cats are picky eaters, and as such, less likely to be interested in some human foods than dogs, but because a cat's digestive system is different from a human's, some human foods can be highly toxic and even deadly to cats.The following seven foods should never be given to cats. If your cat accidentally ingests any of these foods, emergency veterinary treatment may be necessary and an immediate visit to the veterinarian is essential.
Onions and garlic

All members of the onion family (shallots, onions, garlic, scallions, etc.) contain a compound that can damage cats' red blood cells if eaten in sufficient quantities. Some of these are more toxic than others, and cooking does not destroy the toxin. While most cats probably wouldn't eat raw onions or garlic, even products that contain small traces can be dangerous. A particular caution applies to baby food, which is often used to entice sick cats to eat: some brands contain onion powder to add flavoring. Read labels carefully before feeding.
Alcohol

Alcohol can be extremely dangerous for cats, leading to intoxication, coma and even death. Due to their small size, cats are far more sensitive to the effects of alcohol than humans. Cats are often attracted to mixed drinks containing cream or milk, such as eggnog.
Chocolate

Even though cats don't have a sweet tooth, some cats will eat chocolate as part of nibbling on a cookie, candy or other baked treats. Chocolate contains caffeine and theobromine. The darker the chocolate, the higher the theobromine levels.
Moldy or spoiled food

Some molds can produce multiple toxins that can cause vomiting, diarrhea and neurological symptoms. Spoiled food can contain bacteria that can cause intestinal problems.
Raw fish

Eating raw fish can result in a thiamine deficiency, which can lead to loss of appetite, seizures, and in severe cases, death.
Raw dough

Dough made with live yeast can be extremely dangerous for cats. The stomach provides an ideal environment for yeast to multiply. This will lead to the dough expanding in the stomach, which can be severe enough to cut off blood flow to the stomach wall and affect breathing. It can also cause the stomach to rupture. As yeast metabolizes the sugar in the dough, alcohol is produced, which can lead to alcohol poisoning.
Cooked bones

Gnawing on Raw bones can be a great way for kitty to keep her teeth clean, but never give cooked bones to your cat. Cooked bones can splinter and cause intestinal perforations.

    1. @Georgia Andrea they can eat a lot of things on this list. Sure, some cats can’t handle milk, but others can. They can eat meat, they can eat eggs. They can even drink milk. They are predetors and live off of protein. Do you really think that in the wild they just find cat food everywhere they go? No. They eat animal meat. They hunt for God’s sake.

    2. @Diana V hes not saying it like that, he means that his cat is healthy even tho he eats those things lol

    1. @Lizard Wings because they stop producing lactase that helped them digest the milk

    2. @Lizard Wings lactose affects the cats but lactose free milk is fine if that’s what you were talking about

    3. @Linda Linda so your cat did not get diarrhea or fart an hour after drinking milk

    4. Roia DG Yea thats what I was thinking. I sometimes even give them bones it does get stuck but very rarely and she turns out fine but she used to it

    when did I comment this? (Also some cats are lactose intolerant, obviously their mom’s milk is different from milk that humans make, in which they just get diarrhea) most of these if given in small amount won’t be affected, others will…
    Remember each cat is different, like humans.

    1. @*Mild Chaos* because milk isnt all that bad in fact its not at all since they drink thier moms milk

  3. Video: Do not feed your cat milk.
    Me: lol
    Video: Do not feed your cat meat.
    Me: They are predators man!
    Video: Do not feed your cat eggs.
    Me: -.-
    Then what’s the main message? Only feed your cat dry, hard cat food??

  4. Some cats can process milk without problemz. Also, out in the wild, cats never filet their victims, so they do eat the bone as well.

  5. My vet sez differently on milk. She said if it doesn’t give her diarrhea, no problem. It doesn’t.
    I trust my vet way more then some random UT . . . way too much BS paraded about on UT as gospel ~

    1. It depends on its breed . Some cats are lactose tolerant , only way to find out is give ur cat some milk and examine its faecal matter before and after milk consumption

  6. *Those who read my comments may god bless you*
    My cat eat salt today?
    Now she is so sick😢😢😢😢
    Vomiting 😢😢😢
    Pray for my cat please!

    1. LamsTuber 🙏🏽🙏🏽🙏🏽🙏🏽🙏🏽🙏🏽🙏🏽🙏🏽🙏🏽🙏🏽🙏🏽🙏🏽🙏🏽🙏🏽🙏🏽🙏🏽🙏🏽🙏🏽

  7. If you don’t know what to feed a cat if you never had one call a vet . Or talk to some one who has a cat or cats. The person who gives he cat COFFEE IS NUTS , kidney and heart damage is results.

  8. cats cant drink milk??

    *then why in the show tom and jerry tom has a bowl of milk in some shows*

    1. Co tong Tran
      Most cats are lactose intolerant. Besides, water is always best for them anyway. What adult cat drinks milk in the wild?

  9. Actually raw eggs are healthy and nutritious look up cathouse asmr raw egg and find the link that says so it is said by many cat experts
