Onions are the absolutely worst thing you can give a cat........it will make them anemic and eventually cause kidney falure THEN DEATH. Mushrooms are poisen as well..........DO NOT EVER FEED EITHER TO YOUR CAT!

I knew not to give them onions, but I didn't know about mushrooms.

A general rule: people food is not good for cats. Most people food isn't much good for people! I'm trying to get my pizza-and-tuna-loving cat to stay away from people food for the rest of her life.
Fortunately she shows interest in what I eat, but does not partake. That's the best thing for her.

once again I am agreeing with gizmo cat. human food is for humans. and its a bad habit to feed your cat your food because then they try to beg etc

That's a great link, Sarah! I knew about a bunch of foods on the list, but I didn't know tomatoes or mushrooms were poisonous. Definitely good to know!

Onions yes, but mushrooms? If they were "poison" to cats, I'd have a lot of dead cats. Pirate ate them for close to 23 years, and Jamie has been eating them for 7 1/2.
There are poisonous mushrooms, of course, and I wouldn't feed ones picked in the woods, etc., to cats or humans, but organic, store-bought mushrooms aren't going to harm them, and a lot of cats love them.

I wonder why you'll find "tomato pomace" in some cat foods then?

So have at least 2 of my cats. I honestly feel that if you don't go overboard with anything, i.e., just an occasional taste, I don't think you'll kill your cat. I wouldn't sit down and feed them raw onions just for the fun of it though. I'm pretty sure that once the onion is cooked into a huge pot of spaghetti sauce there isn't much deadly ingredients left to kill a cat.

After having only dogs all my life, having cats have been a nice change...no begging. I just have made it a habit never feed my babies anything I am eating. Then I dont have to worry when company is over...and they want to feed them nasty stuff...works for me *g
