I know vanilla ice cream is ok for dogs but is it ok for cats too??? We use to give it Pebbles all the time in the summer to cool off.

So is it ok for cats tohave ice cream??

thanks!!

Our cats have always been allowed to lick the bottom of our ice cream bowls after we finish. They've never had any problems. I would say try a little tiny bit and see how the kitty does. Too much wouldn't be good for them, but a little bit as a treat probably won't hurt.

Our cats liked ice if they were hot enough to want something. How about cold cat milk?

I tried cat milk but Limerick didn't like it. We'll see how ice cream goes, found out he's a french fri cat I leave the table for a minute and he's up on the table chowing down on my fries. needless to say I was not happy, but he was. I think I'm going to keep my food with me at all times from now on.

I just wanted to add that ice cream is not any better for dogs than it is for cats...but a teeny bit sometimes doesn't hurt, I agree...

Rosie won't entertain it, but i always give Sophie a tiny bit on the end of the spoon, except chocolate though

Persil LOVES vanilla icecream - I found her polishing off a bowlful when I went to answer the phone! Thank goodness she hasn't shown any interest in any other sort, and I won't give it to her regularly. But a little spoonful now and hten can't hurt.

Guinness likes to lick out my ice cream bowl after I have finished (sounds yukky, but I don't care cos I am his mammy!!!).

He is so fickle.... he sometimes loves the cat milk and begs for more, and othertimes he will just ignore it!

It's funny cos whenever I am eating any type of food he always comes to investigate what it is that I have. Most of the time he will just walk away. Once, I had this packet of marshmallows and I left them on the sofa in the living room. When I went back into the room he had managed to steal a mallow and had batted it onto the floor. He was pushing it around the living room with his tounge whilst he was licking it! lol

I gave Limerick a little bit of ice cream. He took a couple licks of it then walked away. It seems that he doesn't love it, but doesn't hate it at the same time. Well see what happens this summer when it's in the 90's. He might like it better then.

Our dear Ebony would go crazy for ice cream. He would not sit on your lap but if he saw me with a bowl of ice cream he would come stand on my lap and I would hold the bowl up and he would try to pull the bowl down within his range with his paw. He would then lick as long as I let him. I'd end up having to spoon some in a special bowl for him.

Katie has been known to miraculously overcome her shyness and come out from under the bed when guests are over and ice cream is served. I usually let her lick the bowl if a tiny bit of vanilla is left.

I had a dog growing up, and we used to give him Frosty Paws. You know, the stuff that is cold and similar to ice cream but has nutrients and is dog-friendly? I couldn't tell you if it tasted the same though.

Wonder if cats would eat it too?

My cat Holly is into ice-cream, it upsets her little tummy though so no ice-cream for her!
