What is Toxic  to Cats?

We all want to keep our cats safe and healthy, which is why you need to be aware of the list of items around your home that could be harmful or toxic. There are many things around the home that can impact a cat's health, ranging from triggering an allergic reaction to full-on poisoning which can be fatal.

Garlic, onions, chives, and leeks are all toxic to cats and kittens. Even small doses over time can cause serious health issues, with garlic and chives being the worst offenders. Keep them off your cat’s menu.

Human Foods That Can Be Toxic to Your Cat

Chocolate is another no-no. All forms of chocolate contain theobromine, an ingredient that humans can naturally metabolize but cats can’t. This can build up, becoming a toxin.

Other Everyday Items That Can Be Poisonous to Your Pet

Laundry detergents and fabric softeners may cause issues, even once clothes are laundered.

Dishwashing soaps – a full dishwasher cycle may not clear all of the trace soap, so be careful especially if your cat’s bowls have been put in the dishwasher.

Many medications intended for humans are toxic to cats. Be careful not to leave painkillers like ibuprofen, or other tablets like antidepressants, in a place where your cat could get to them.
