Default Is mayonnaise bad for cats?

My year old cat got into some mayonnaise that was on the kitchen counter and
ate some of it. About a hour after he ate the mayo, he threw up and you
could see some of the remnants of the mayo.

Is mayonnaise bad for cats? I read the ingredients and they included dried
garlic and dried onion which I know isn't good for cats.

It is if he's watching his cholesterol.

Seriously, I don't think dairy products are good for adult cats, either,
aside from the ingredients you mention. But the good news is that he
threw it up, so it's out of his system.

And yet they love them. Cheeks tries to get my salad bowls for the ranch
dressing, and I caught her lapping at a dollop of sour cream once, too.

*Any* form of onion is a no no for cats - can cause hemolytic anemia. How
far down were onions listed on the ingredients list? How much did your cat
eat?

Also, gotta watch high fat treats because they cause a imbalance in the
cat's caloric intake. If they eat too much fat they'll meet their energy
needs and stop eating before their nutritional needs are met.
