Upon hearing their human shake a can of ready-made whipped cream, a trio of house cats loudly beg for a just little taste. The sample is quickly dispensed despite the fact that Minion the grey tabby is a little slow on the uptake. Their human freely admits that she “foolishly gave one of our cats whipped cream once” and that “this is what happens every time we use it now.”
Most of us have probably given our cats a bit of milk and never noticed a problem. That’s because some cats tolerate milk just fine. …How can you tell? Try offering your cat a tablespoon or two of milk. If you don’t see symptoms within a day, chances are good your cat will do fine with milk as an occasional treat. …Sometimes a cat that can’t tolerate milk may have no problem with other forms of dairy, like yogurt, cheese, butter, or ice cream. That’s because “different forms of dairy food contain varying amounts of lactose”.
