Despite the stereotypes, cow’s milk is no good for cats!
Many cats are actually lactose-intolerant, and feeding your kitten milk may cause diarrhea.

If you don’t have any good cat food, boiled skinless-boneless chicken and rice is a better option!

    yeah as far as i know cats really love milk
    and theres no such thing as “too old for milk”
    in fact when you are old you should drink
    milk to avoid osteoporosis

    But it can’t be regular milk. Get a special formula for kittens from a pet store. cats are lactose intolerant.

    you CAN give it milk but it will have diaria and makes its stomach hurt after a while and makes the kitty litter smell horrible, but no kitty is ever to old for milk (my cat gets milk as a treat but we don’t give it milk all the time), i recommend you don’t, but if you want to go right ahead.

    NO!! If you want don’t them to have the craps I wouldn’t. Only if the mom won’t nurse you can go to a feed store and get a supplement milk (goat) is best. Milk is too much on their system. When they are adults maybe a couple tablespoons will be ok, just stay away from it while they’re kittens. Steph

    Give your cat milk if you want… it isn’t going to hurt it. If the cat doesn’t like it (some don’t) then it won’t drink it.

    If you would like to give your cat milk

    Pet stores sell kitten milk

    Once a cat is weened, it physically does not ever need milk again. In the wild, did cats sneek up on cows with a ladder and suck their utters? I have personally known and worked with over 20 veterinarians and never once heard any one of them tell a cat owner it was ok to give a cat milk. A kitten gets all the milk it ever needs from its mom (biological or foster). Even if it was an orphan, it would already be weened from kitten formula by 5 to 8 weeks.

    If she is four months old already I think its time to replace the milk with water. Also ignore the pictures of cats drinking milk, in the oldern times thats what people gave their cats and now everybody kind of got stuck with the idea. Besides milk is more expensive!
