What food should my cat avoid?
Some pet parents feel it is better to feed home-prepared diets to pets than prepared pet-food. This results from the perception that home-prepared food is fresher and less processed. Also people believe they know what they are feeding the pet and increasingly mistrust manufactured foods.
Contrary to these perceptions it is better to feed a pet prepared pet-food. Prepared pet-food is the best way to feed a pet as it is nutritionally complete and safe. In fact, some human foods can be downright dangerous to cats -
|Human Foods||What it does to cats|

|Raw egg||Causes hair fall and damages the coat|
|Chocolate||Affects the heart and the nervous system|
