Cats and cheese :/

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

I never give any of my pets human food, just out of fear that it will hurt them. Today, I was in the shower, and when I came out my brother was giving my cat cheese. -.- Will cheese hurt cats? :c Is it bad for them? I'm a little worried that he's going to get sick..

Cheese, being dairy, may cause some cats to vomit due to lactose intolerance. My cats LOVE cheese.They will eat Cheddar, but Gouda is their favorite. If  you look at the Friskies pates, you will see a lot of them with small bits of cheese in them.

 

Unless your cats are lactose intolerant, a little bit of cheese now and then will not hurt them.

I think cheese will not hurt cat. My pussy love cheese. I have given cheese twice a week. But i didn't find any bad effect for it.

Depends on the cat  i think because Simon loves cheese and milk but too much milk causes him to have an upset tummy.creampersian.gif

cheese contains less lactose than milk, so cheese is usually ok also for cats who dont manage milk.  

 

For Cole I could recommend goat milk, if he by any reason needs milk, he should manage it.

a little peculiar, goat milk contains almost as much lactose as cow milk - yet it is managed by most.

 

Youghurt (unsweetened, unflavored sort) is another alternative.

 

 

 

ps... Im not sure about mould cheese, like blue mould cheese.

 

Im sure mould as such is no good for cats, and thus, some mould cheeses arent good.

 

Although my guess is mild brie or camembert should be ok in small doses.
