A lot of people know that cats love to beg for food. But this habit should not be encouraged, because once she has learned to beg, it will be a hard thing to unlearn. It is not good to teach her to meow in front of the plate until you, out of pity, give her something to taste.

If you have reason to believe that your cat has eaten something toxic, contact your veterinarian immediately. They are the only ones able to recommend treatment for a quick recovery.
