Do Cats Like Milk?

One persistent myth about cats is that they love milk and that it makes a good treat for them. In reality, milk is likely to irritate your cat’s tummy, especially in the case of adult and older cars, and many cats don’t really even like it. If you want to give your cat milk, ask your veterinarian for his or her advice. This video explains more.

Cats start out drinking their mothers’ milk, of course, but when they stop nursing, many become lactose-intolerant as they grow into adulthood. Although some cats can digest milk without an issue, this treat is an invitation to digestive disturbances and maybe even land the pet in the animal hospital in some cases.
