    Milk in all cream soups! Anything that will have leftovers. We also do freezer cooking and also do a thirty day cooking. Cooking day can be LONG sometimes, but it's worth it.

    My cousin's son. His feet grew so fast that they couldn't find him shoes that fit properly. Finally they called the office of the pro football team about two hours away. Not only did they send cousin R. a box with a team t-shirt, sweatshirt, jacket, scarf, hat. mug, and team logo shoes, the team sent them enough tickets that the family could all home games for a year. Big feet aren't always a bad things! COUSIN

    Human Foods Which Cats Can't Eat

    This list contains common foods, but is by no means extensive. As a rule of thumb, if in doubt, don't give it to your cat. It may save him a great deal of pain and suffering and you an expensive veterinarian bill. Alcohol: I would like to hope that nobody would actually try giving a cat alcohol. Alcohol can cause intoxication, gastrointestinal irritation, respiratory distress, coma and death. Apricot, cherry, peach pits, apple seeds: All of the above contain cyanogenic glycosides which will result in cyanide poisoning. This interferes with the ability of the blood to release oxygen into the tissues, so the cat effectively suffocates while it's blood is full of oxygen. Avocado: Avocado contains a toxin known as persin. It is found in all parts of the avocado and is toxic to most domestic animals. The symptoms include gastrointestinal irritation, vomiting, diarrhea, respiratory distress, congestion, fluid accumulation around the tissues of the heart and even death. Citrus: May cause vomiting in cats. Cooked bones: Cooked bones can splinter and cause an obstruction, therefore they should be avoided. Chocolate, Coffee and Tea: Chocolate contains naturally occurring methylxanthines caffeine and theobromine. The concentration of theobromine is much higher than that of caffeine, but both cause toxicity in cats (and dogs). These chemicals act as a diuretic, causing the body to lose fluids, act as a cardiac stimulant, causing it to race and is also a central nervous system stimulant. All types of chocolate should be avoided, including dark, milk, white and cocoa powders. Grapes and raisins: These have been known to cause kidney damage. The active ingredient hasn't been identified. Macadamia nuts: Macadamia nuts have been known to cause tremors and muscle weakness in dogs, therefore it's best to apply caution and avoid giving them to cats. Milk: While this won't kill your cat, some cats are lactose intolerant and drinking cow's milk will cause a tummy upset. Weaned cats no longer need to drink milk, however if you do want to give your cat some milk as an occasional treat them the best solution is to buy some cat milk from your supermarket. Mushrooms: There are many types of mushrooms which are poisonous. While dogs are far more likely to eat mushrooms than cats, it is advised you avoid giving your cats any type of mushrooms to be on the safe side. Fat: While fat isn't toxic to cats per se, it's not healthy to routinely feed your cat a diet high in animal fats as it will lead to obesity. Large amounts of fat can also cause pancreatitis. Liver: Small amounts of liver are fine to eat, but if fed too often it can result in Vitamin A toxicosis. Onion and Garlic: Onions contain sulfoxides and disulfides which damage red blood cells and can cause haemolytic anaemia. Be careful when feeding your cat human foods, some people will recommend baby food for a cat who's lost it's appetite. This is fine, but make sure the food doesn't contain any onion, flakes, powder etc. Onion causes greater problems than garlic. Potato (green parts and eyes): These contain solanine glycosides which can cause vomiting, abdominal pain, bloody diarrhoea, nervous system stimulation, depression, trembling, paralysis and cardiac arrest. Salt: Large quantities of salt can lead to an electrolyte imbalance. Tomato: See potatoes. Tuna: This is another food which is fine to feed as an occasional treat, but mustn't be fed regularly, as it can lead to a condition known as Steatitis or Yellow Fat Disease. Yeast dough: This can expand in the stomach causing bloating and discomfort. Other foods which your cat shouldn't eat: Soy and Rice Bran Raisins Rhubarb Spoiled or mouldy food. If it's gone off, don't give it to your cat. Hops It is always a good idea to check with your vet before giving your cat food which is meant for human consumption, just to be on the safe side.

    Human Foods Which Cats Can't Eat

    Our newest kitty was about 11 months old when we adopted him two weeks ago. She told us he would only eat a certain brand of canned cat food in just one flavor that came in 3 oz. cans. Our other nine all happily eat Blue Buffalo dry. The doggies eat the dog version of Blue. Guess who turned up his little bitty pink nose at his gourmet canned food? Apparently WE only eat people food! Now he snarfles down the Blue but unfortunately, people food and dog food (large to giant size dog) remain his favorites. He now weighs 6 pounds! Abe (Mr. Lincoln)

    Back on my %^#$ diet

    there's nothing quite like enforced inactivity plus being on the wrong meds to undo a lifetime of careful eating and diligent exercise!
