Cats will not eat sweet stuff because they don't have those taste buds, but they seem to love salty or spicy stuff.

As a vet, you tell people that even a tiny amount of these things will kill their pet because if you tell people that you can give them a small amount with no issues they will end up giving them too much, because people in general are stupid.

Then, if they give their pets a small amount with no adverse effects they assume their pet is immune or the warnings are bullshiat.

I don't know if anyone is interested since this isn't really on topic, but I just got back from the vet and it seems my cat's issue is not one of the major ones, although we're not certain yet. He's home for Christmas though. Thanks to those who were concerned.

Maybe, but you're also causing unnecessary fear. When my dogs ate a chocolate pie I freaked, thinking they'd die. Then I learned how much chocolate it takes to actually harm a 100lb dog. It's a lot. Same with onions. I had no idea they were bad for dogs, not to mention being shocked they liked them. I don't feed them this stuff, but I also don't freak out if they get a little bit.

Strawberries better not be bad, because they love frozen strawberries. Then again, Catfish is 13 and healthy as can be, albeit going gray. Must be doing something right.

Bippal: My childhood cat used to flip out if we came home with taco bell. Finally my parents let him try left over soft taco. It was eventually a requirement that we bring him one home if anyone brought any home to eat. He would eat the lettuce, cheese, meat, shell, everything . Even lick the paper clean. He was a pretty rad cat.


Sounds fine for a cat - most love cheese, and the meat filling would be mostly harmless, unless it was really spicey or had lots of onion in it. Lots of catfood has corn in it anyway, so even the shell would be ok as a treat.

I don't even know what barbecue oil is so my dogs are safe for another year.
