Before feeding your cat, it is important to take a look at the list of potentially dangerous foods. In fact, there are many foods that cause cat poisoning. As you know chocolate is the most famous of all, here are the most harmful foods for cats:

Potato
Raw potatoes contain calcium oxalate. It is an ionic crystal that damages the urinary tract of cats, which can cause kidney stones.

Cabbage and turnip
These vegetables are very bad for cats because they brew in the stomach, causing gas and even diarrhea.

Grapes
Whether dry or fresh, grapes can cause intestinal disturbances to cats and kidney damage. We should know that the seeds (apples, cherries, apricots …) are toxic to them and can poison them.

Chocolate, cocoa, tea and coffee
A molecule present in cocoa is very harmful to cats when it is stored in the liver. The cat takes much longer than a human to eliminate this molecule (about a day).

If your cat consumes chocolate, the following symptoms may appear: vomiting, diarrhea, and cramps. Caffeine is also toxic and dangerous for cats. Foods that contain caffeine easily increase the heart rate of cats, which may cause coma or death.

Mushrooms
Just like humans, there is a fungus that is toxic to cats. It can cause liver and nerve problems, and in the worst case, cause the death of the animal.

Avocado
Avocado is a high-fat diet, which can cause pancreatitis in your cat. In addition, it contains persin, a toxic component that can damage the lungs and heart.

Nuts
