Cat toxic foods are often given to a cat as part of the “toxic load” when you bring him home from the pet store. Often, this can be in the form of a bag or container of food that says it’s filled with cat toxic foods. It may also come with a tag that says this cat food contains no animal protein. Read these statements carefully and know what you’re buying before you give it to your cat.
Your cat needs a balanced diet, just like you. But, it’s important that cats get the right nutrients too. A cat does not require the same vitamins and minerals that dog do, just like human infants don’t need the same nutritional requirements as children. Just like babies and small children, cats will die if they do not receive adequate nutrition. Therefore, it’s important that cats get the correct balance of vitamins and minerals.
Some of the cat toxic foods that your cat will eat include beef, milk and soy sauce. Other cat toxic foods include applesauce, chocolate gravy mix, chicken broth, avocado and sweet potatoes. Just as with dogs, cats will digest these foods quickly and not be able to absorb the necessary nutrients. Look for a declaration on the back of the can that says it’s balanced and complete with vitamins and minerals. Avoid giving your cat toxic foods, including chocolate gravy mix, chocolate gravy, avocado and sweet potatoes. Instead, provide them with kibble and moist cat food with moisture.
A cat needs plenty of water to stay hydrated and to prevent heat stress. If you notice that your cat has lost appetite, is losing weight or seems sick, you should suspect that he may have some cat toxic foods. Chocolate, sweet potatoes and avocado are all rich in a substance called carotene. This substance is also found in carrots and liver. This chemical is very poisonous to cats, so always keep a close eye on your cat’s diet and make sure he never has chocolate or sweet potatoes.
Also, avocado and sweet potatoes are a good source of protein. Although they’re not very good for cats, they are extremely good for us humans. If you have any doubt as to what cat foods with a high content of protein, sugar and carotene may be giving your cat, run a fast, full body check up by having your cat give you a full body examination.
Finally, think about this, if your cat likes pumpkin and thinks it’s tasty, wouldn’t a pumpkin pie make a great Halloween Feast this year? Now you know why you should eliminate any “all cat” foods from your cat’s diet because many cat owners unwittingly feed their cats Halloween Feast. So this Halloween, don’t take the guess work out of what your cat likes or doesn’t like by buying commercial cat food, but instead look for healthy, real Halloween treats that your cat will enjoy.
