While it might appear surprising, bones are indeed harmful to your cats. Bones can break and splinter and even cause an obstruction in your cat’s food pipe. Even worse, the bones can easily perforate your cat’s digestive system and send her into a state of unbearable pain.
So, if you have a cat at home, it’s imperative to be watchful of what she eats. And if you own both a cat and a dog, it is even more important to be vigilant since the two can’t swap their foods. Most veterinarians recommend never to feed cats anything harder than their teeth.
