Thanksgiving can be a deadly time of the year for pets. Special feedings of holiday foods can cost a cat its health and life. Feeding from holiday menus can cause severe intestinal problems such as vomiting and diarrhea. Even if you use caution and avoid feeding holiday food to cats, other dangers can exist. Turkey dinner remains and bones sitting out or in the garbage may attract your cat. Bones can become lodged in a cat’s mouth or can result in lacerations to the intestinal tract as well as blockages. If bones make it down into the stomach and intestines, it could be days before a cat would show any signs of illness. Signs would be vomiting, listlessness, anorexia, and abdominal pain.
