They can when they are kittens. But I thought once they grew up, or haven't drunk milk for a long time or maybe even are a certain breed that they would become lactose intolerate, causing them digestive problems when they drink milk.
In small amounts, not too often, your cat should be okay. In larger amounts, it can make the cat sick leading to diarrhea or allergic reactions such as itchy skin or a runny nose. If your cat is eating nutritional food, then the milk isn't necessary. If he is begging, grab some treats made for cats.
Absolutely you can give your cat milk (just make sure it's a small bowl twice a week at the most) if you want whip up a egg and put some in with it, it's wonderful for a healthy and shiny coat. I have been raising and training cats and dogs for about 25 years and cats need a balance of dry foods and some wet or oils for good health, hope everything goes purrrfect for you and your precious feline :)

I agree with another post that if you 'really' want to, then try it 50/50 with water. However, remember, cats at any age are prone to have urinary tract issues....so water is best. Most cats like fresh water and doing so could help ward off any urinary tract problems. Whether they are an inside or outside cat, keep the toilet lids closed while they are in the house. Not good and they will try drinking from it since their sense of smell draws them to H2O
