Kittens and cats also should not eat anything that contains onions or garlic.
To quote Chris Bern, DVM:
"Why the big worry? Onions are very toxic to cats. Potentially fatally toxic, in fact. They cause abnormalities in the red blood cells leading to their destruction and severe anemia (called Heinz body anemia due to the structure created within the blood cells), and can also cause kidney failure. This can happen relatively quickly, and with only a small amount of onion. It has been known to happen after cats ate baby food with onion powder as an ingredient. Garlic is in the same plant family, and can cause the same toxicity. Cats have died from people giving them garlic tablets as a way to prevent fleas (which garlic does NOT do, and has been studied scientifically). These plants are also potentially toxic to some dogs, but the risk is nowhere nearly as serious as with cats.

I have a 10 week old male kitten. He does use the litterbox but very early in the mornings he likes to do the number one on my bed. What to do???you

at 12 weeks a kitten should leave its mother. it may not seam much but they learn from their mother, if offend you should keep them to one room so they get used to the surroundings. they will want to explore but while you are a sleep keep them in just the one room with food water and a place he will know where to go loo. in day time let him explore with you around home. this is how the mother would do. then take him back to the room with food and loo. dont let the kitten move around the house while you are asleep. this is for the kittens safety, they will eat and bite things they should not. hope this helps.

My dog will eat our food but will not eat his , he is being given wainrights he just wants our food

A dog can go without food for a few days and then will eat when it is hungry. Just stop giving your dog your food and at its normal feeding time give it a bowl of its food. If it does not eat it, take the food away. Then 24 hours later put the bowl of food out for the dog. If it has not eaten it within ten minutes take it away and then 24 hours later put the bowl of food out for the dog again. By now the dog should be happy to eat what it is given.
