In general, it’s a good idea to keep your cat away from people food. Not only can some people food be bad for cats, but it’s not always the best type of food to go into your cat’s digestive system.
That’s what one cat discovered after eating an entire fruit cake soaked in brandy. The hungover cat had to be rushed to the vet, who checked his kidneys and kept him in overnight on fluids for observation.
Fortunately, Monty the cat has recovered and is doing well, although it’s unlikely that he’ll indulge in brandy-soaked fruit cake any time in the near future.
