Kitties love milk-But it’s not part of a balanced diet-Unless you’re a calf

 

Question:

I am in first grade and have an assignment that is asking why cats like milk. Why do they like milk?

 

Dr. Nichol:

Cats enjoy milk for the same reasons that people do: It tastes great. And that’s because it has plenty of animal fat and protein. Cow’s milk makes a fine diet for baby cows-not really for cats. The best thing to feed a cat is cat food. But you like milk and so does your cat.  So I think you can each have some-just don’t let it spoil your appetite for your real dinner.
