The Voldemort Feed List, a list of cat food brands, is drawing attention.

Recently, online cat communities and social media have been active in sharing a list of certain cat foods suspected of causing neurological and muscular disorders in cats.

The term Voldemort Feed is borrowed from the Harry Potter series’ He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named Voldemort and is used to avoid potential legal issues with pet food companies.

Some cat owners recommend foreign-made food over domestic brands and advise caution when buying second-hand.

On the 11th, the Korean Veterinary Medical Association (KVMA) also urged animal caretakers to pay attention to this issue.

The KVMA advised that it can be challenging for pet owners to determine whether symptoms like loss of appetite or decreased energy are temporary or disease-related. Suppose a cat suddenly shows abnormal symptoms like reduced appetite, inability to get up, immobility, or passing dark red urine. In that case, owners should immediately visit a veterinary clinic for a thorough examination.

The KVMA also reported that multiple veterinary clinics that had reported these cases found all major infectious diseases were harmful in the symptomatic cats, and some are still undergoing testing for certain diseases, with results expected in 1-2 weeks.

Regarding the symptoms, parasitic diseases are strongly suspected, and similar cases are sporadically occurring nationwide. There are also suggestions of possible transmission through food or sand, necessitating further investigation depending on the results of the detailed examinations.

The KVMA is actively collaborating with related organizations to identify the cause of the neurological and muscular disorders in cats and has pledged to continue efforts to protect pet health by providing relevant information to its members.

Consequently, the unexplained deaths of cats have led to growing anxiety among pet owners.

Some owners advised, “Even after testing, there are cases where the liver enzyme levels are outside the normal range,” and “Even if no symptoms appear after feeding the cat the listed food, visit a vet.”

Meanwhile, the Voldemort Feed List can easily be found in cat cafes and other portal sites. However, whether a specific manufacturer’s food is the problem is not confirmed.
