Feeding tamales to cats is a bad idea. While tamales may be delicious to us, they can be harmful to our furry friends. Tamales often contain ingredients like onions, garlic, spices, and masa dough that can cause problems for cats.
Onions and garlic, in particular, can damage a cat’s red blood cells and cause anemia, which is a serious condition. The high fat content and spices in tamales can also upset a cat’s sensitive stomach and cause problems such as vomiting, diarrhea, or inflammation of the pancreas.
To keep your cats healthy and happy, it’s important to stick to their regular diet and avoid sharing human food with them. If you want to treat your cat, there are many cat-friendly snacks and treats that are safe and enjoyable for your feline.
