Why you should not feed your cat table scraps?

It is not unusual to want to feed your cat table scraps as he/she peers at you with those big brown eyes. However, feeding your cat any people food will cause more harm than good. Table scraps are destructive to your cat’s digestive systems and can cause severe stomach upset such as fatal pancreatic inflammation. 

Avoid giving your cat any chicken or turkey bones, do not add any table scraps to your pet’s food dish, never feed chocolate to pets due to its toxicity to animals and discard all table scraps in a tightly covered garbage can. The best thing you can do for your cat is to not give in to those pleading eyes. Feed it the proper diet, provide plenty of exercise and give your cat an extra helping of love and attention when meal time is over. He or she will live longer and happier.
