Cat owners who are trying to give their feline friend a special treat often prepare a bowl of milk, but cats would probably prefer some catnip or a pat on the head. Cats may enjoy the taste of milk as much as humans think they do, but that does not make it healthy. Many cats cannot process dairy and will get an upset stomach after drinking milk. Other cats may have serious health problems when exposed to too much milk. Warm food or a cat treat are a better option when pampering a cat. It is always best to give pets human food sparingly, and be sure something is safe for cats before tempting your pet.
