Raw meat and fish

Cats can be fed boiled beetroot, carrots, and zucchini. However, some vegetables are dangerous and poisonous to animals. These are avocados, grapes, raisins, onions, garlic, and nuts. Potatoes and legumes cause flatulence and bloating.
Chocolate and cocoa provoke heart and vascular diseases. In general, sweets are the main cause of diabetes, obesity, and dental diseases.
By the way, a cat's diet should consist of at least 60% meat products. We are talking about boiled or baked dishes. It is useful to cook broths or cereals with the addition of stewed vegetables.
