Cats are carnivores, which means they need a diet of animal-based protein to thrive. So you might think giving them a little water-packed tuna is a treat that's good for them, too, right? Think again. Tuna can have trace amounts of mercury in it, and giving a cat a consistent diet of tuna can lead to mercury poisoning. Also, unlike cartoons that show cats lapping up milk, the reality is most cats are also lactose-intolerant. So skip dairy products for your frisky feline, too.
