It may seem harmless, but you should avoid sharing food with your pet. I know, it's hard! Husbando's kitty loves lots of different kinds of human food, mostly meats and dairy products. And when she looks at me, being so cute... I admit, sometimes I let her lick the plate. If I have a bit of meat, sometimes I'll give her some. I'm so bad! I try not to get too crazy with it. But  "Real Simple" put together a list of six dangerous foods for a dog, cat, bird or other pet.  Check it out.


1.  Chocolate.  It stimulates their heart and nervous system. And it's dangerous for all species of pet, but especially dogs.

2.  Grapes or raisins.  Both are poisonous to cats and dogs because they can damage their kidneys.

3.  Garlic and onions.  They can cause anemia in cats and dogs.

4.  Macadamia nuts.  These can cause muscle and nervous system damage in dogs.

5.  Avocados.  These are harmful to most species, but especially birds.  They can damage the heart muscle.

6.  Alcoholic drinks.  This seems like a no-brainer, but alcohol is bad for ALL species because it depresses their nervous system.

Does your pet eat human food? What do you give them? What's their favorite?

Petly yours,
