According to Yahoo's article last month, all forms of onions are considered poisonous to pets. They cause gastrointestinal irritation and red blood cell damage. After reading such, I applied it, immediately. Not as an experiment, but to actually poison those stray cats which utilize our lawn as their "toilet."
So, I fed them with concoction of raw minced onions and rice every day for about a week. I waited for days, weeks, and almost a month, but those cats are still alive and showed no signs of irritation in their digestive system and damage to their red blood cells. They still love to visit our front lawn and stay there for a couple of minutes just to defecate and urinate and leave us with obnoxious smell. I hate those cats.
I, therefore, conclude that onions are not really poisonous to cats contrary to the information presented in that article.
