  1. Hi may I know why cow's milk is toxic? In my impression most cats love milk. What kind of milk is that then?

  2. Hi. Cats are actually lactose-intolerant, especially Oriental breeds like our local cats. They are unable to digest it, and cows' milk will give them diarrhoea. There are milk products suitable for cats to enjoy: pet milk brands such as Cosi, or goat's milk.

  3. but i've seen some cats feed on cow's milk and doesn't seem to be affected by it
