Can Cats Eat Cheese?

Answer

Cheese is not good for cats. Their digestive system cannot process dairy foods, and the result can be digestive upset with diarrhea. Although kittens can tolerate milk and other dairy products, most adult cats cannot. Most cats are lactose intolerant as they do not produce the enzyme lactase to digest the sugar.
