Please Don't Give Your Cat These Foods!

You humans are so looking forward to Christmas aren't you? You just can't wait for all the festivities and fun to start (some of you have already started, I know).

Those over indulgences and excesses.

Oh, why do you do it? WHY?

Ok, enough of the lecture.

This is a reminder that the following foods must never be given to cats on Christmas Day (and any other day for that matter).

  • Raisins
  • Grapes
  • Chocolate
  • Nuts
  • Turkey bones
  • Garlic
  • Onions
  • Alcohol!

Always be sure to read the ingredients of everything before you let it go anywhere near your cat as it may contain the above and can be very toxic to your furry friends and babies!

For example, mince pies contain raisins and they are definitely not good for your cat!

As for alcohol - we don't know why anyone would ever give any to a cat or any pet (Mum says it's animal cruelty), but it can happen. For example, if under the influence of the demon drink a human may think it funny to give to a cat. Or  maybe kitty himself, curious as he is, may want to see what all the fuss is about. And really, would any cat be dumb enough to do that? Mmmm... I don't know. Maybe. Personally, the stink of alcohol makes me want to puke. When Mum is drinking wine I really don't want any kisses from her!

But anyway, Athena the wise kitty, named after the dear wise Goddess, says never touch alcohol! Oh, I wish my mum wouldn't, I can tell you!

Have a fabulous holiday, whatever you are doing. And if you are having a quiet one with your pets (like Mum and I), enjoy the peace and quiet and the chance to have extra snuggles on the sofa.

Love and purrs xx

We leave you with this video from the cat daddy himself, Jackson Galaxy.

I don't know why any human in his or her right mind would give a kitty any of these. But then, humans can do really dumb things!

Good advice! One of the cats who came before us occasionally got into unattended wine glasses, so it's good to be vigilant just in case.
