We all know that Cats are finicky eaters. Cheerios are no different. Many people think that because they are a grain-based food, they must be safe for cats. However, there are certain risks that come with feeding your cat Cheerios.

The biggest risk is that Cheerios contain honey. Honey is safe for humans, but it can be dangerous for cats. Honey can lead to gastrointestinal problems and even liver disease in cats.

Another risk is that Cheerios contain nuts. Nuts are not safe for cats to eat and can cause choking or gastrointestinal problems.

The best way to avoid these risks is to simply not feed your cat Cheerios. If you must, make sure to remove the honey and nuts before giving them to your cat.
