Question:

Just recently I got a new baby kitten named Tapas. Tapas is now 4 months old. Can young kittens drink milk? Why or why not?

Thanks,

Tina

Answer:


Hello Tina

Cow's milk is a natural good source of minerals. Most kittens will enjoy drinking milk and will digest it without a problem. The rare reaction is diarrhea, and you just stop giving milk. But milk should not be the main part of the feeding, the kittens also need a good source of protein from meat.
