What foods should I keep in a pantry or closed cupboard out of reach from my cat?FamilyPet
While cats aren’t as bold as dogs when it comes to pilfering food from the kitchen counter or the fridge, they are still very capable of getting themselves into a bit of mischief when it comes to finding food. With this in mind, there are a few food items that cat owners should ensure their cats do not have ready access to, as a way to ensure their cat’s safety and good health.
There are many types of foods that are toxic to cats, including:
- Macadamia nuts
There are also several food items to which cats can potentially be allergic. Some of these include:
- Dairy products like milk, yogurt, cheese, sour cream
Keep food secured in a pantry that can be shut or locked, or keep the food in cabinets that your cats are not able to open. Ensure that the magnetic seals on your fridge are secure, just in case a curious cat figures out how to pull open a fridge door in order to gain access to the goodies inside.
If you do suspect that your cat has ingested items that are potentially toxic, then you should not hesitate to take him to your vet for an examination.
