Is milk okay for cat ?

Lak just can drink milk. So I just search whether milk is okay for cat and found this article :-

Question: Is Milk Okay for my Cat?
My cat enjoys milk, and I give her a small amount two or three times a week. Will this help or harm her? I've read somewhere that milk is not good for cats.
Answer: Generally speaking, milk is not recommended for adult cats, as many of them are lactose-intolerant, and have problems digesting it.
However, If she's not throwing up or having diarrhea, she's probably okay with it. Some experts advise that cream is better than regular milk if you must give it to cats, probably because cream has less lactose than whole or skim milk. But again, a small amount of skim milk seems to be okay for your kitty, so I wouldn't worry about it.

Also, recently, several new lactose-free milk substitutes for cats have been developed, such as CatSip, which may also be found in some food stores and most large pet supply stores. If your cat enjoys milk, she may like these products too.

Hope this will ease your mind.

In the US, you can find 'kitten milk', designed to be fed to kittens (duh!). Not sure if you can find it in Malaysia, but there must be something similar around for kittens that are orphaned or need a little topping up.

Our main concern with standard milk would be whether it has all the odd enzymes kitties require. Of course, if milk is all Lak will eat, at least he's eating something.

Hang in there, Lak. We're still purrrrrring for you.

PS: We've heard that while most adult kitties in the US are 'lactose-intolerant', that is not true in other parts of the world. No idea if that is true or not, but we put it out for whatever it might matter.

ppuurrrrrrrr
