Danger: Cats Eat These Things

You name it and cats can get into it. Some cats actually seek out things to chew, eat or destroy.

Some of these items are generally non-toxic while other items can be highly toxic. I want to give you a list of the most toxic items cats commonly ingest. They include: 


  • Yarn, string, ribbon, tinsel, cassette tape and other similar items
  • Potpourri
  • Human medications (e.g. Tylenol)
  • Dog flea medications
  • Easter Lilies
  • Rat poison
  • Cigarettes

    If your cat eats something and you have any doubt about whether it is dangerous or toxic, always call your veterinarian or local emergency clinic.

    By the way – treating a cat that has gotten into a toxin or ingested an object is expensive. The average cost for treatment of a cat that ingests a linear object (like dental floss) is about $6,243. That is a lot of money!

    Most toxins are treatable, and given time and treatment many pets do quite well.
