12/7/2019 "Most cat owners are guilty of feeding their feline friends from their own plate - but what foods shouldn't you feed them?" "Milk, bread and fatty meat are among the potentially harmful foods that shouldn't be fed to cats, according to experts." - NorthWalesLive
10/23/2019 "Cats can’t taste sweet things. Also, some foods are not only tasteless to them, but are also very dangerous to their health. So while we think we are being good owners, we might actually be harming them. There are foods that are even poisonous to our cats and we need to pay attention to them because it is always better to be safe than sorry." - Bright Side
10/22/2019 "Toxic foods for pets. Nobody can resist a dog’s big loving eyes and adorable grin. And your cat’s loving purr and that sweet little rub against your leg. A little treat won’t hurt, right? Wrong. There’s plenty of human-safe grub that will have adverse effects if it finds its way inside your pet’s mouth, and this food is more common than you think. Your furry friends are opportunists at heart, especially when tasty treats are involved. But the fact is, not everything that humans can eat is automatically good for them." - VeggieConverter

Giving your cat any table scraps or tidbits of human food is a dangerous practice that should not be encouraged for multiple reasons.

undated "Have you ever wondered whether it’s safe for your cat to eat the leftovers they have their eye on? While cats are typically fussier than dogs and seem to know what they want, they don’t always get it right – sometimes cats will want to eat things that aren’t good for them. When that happens, it’s important for owners to understand which human-food their pets can and can’t eat." - PetsAtHome
