Is Milk Good for Kittens?


Kittens require their mother's milk until about 4 weeks of age, at which point the mom starts the weaning process. Once they are weaned, kittens do not require any additional milk in their diet. In fact, giving them cow's milk may cause medical problems such as vomiting and upset stomach. Kittens do not have the necessary enzymes required to process the lactose commonly found in cow's milk.

At an early age, since birth up to 8 weeks old, kittens tend to have milk as their primary source of nutrients. They get it from their mother. However, as the kitten matures, it should be fed with meat, fruits, or vegetables, or even processed cat food to avoid lactose intolerance because of milk ingestion.
