Dear Dr. Schelling,

When I was a kid, we would give our cats a saucer of milk every day. Lately I read that cow’s milk is not good for them. What’s the truth?


Dear Cindy,

Many of us grew up thinking that milk was an important part of a cat’s diet, but this is actually a myth. While many cats like milk, it may not like them. This is because many adult cats are lactose intolerant. Cow’s milk is also problematic for kittens, because it does not contain the proper balance of nutrients.
