Q: Do cats really need to drink milk?
A: We’ve all seen those charming images of kittens lapping up a saucer of milk. Yes, it’s adorable. But is cow’s milk the perfect food for cats? Not at all!
On the contrary, some cats can’t tolerate milk products. For these animals, a saucer off milk means gastric upset.
In the wild, kittens never milk after they're weaned, and domestic cats have no reason to either. The inability to digest milk usually starts around the age of 12 weeks.
On the other hand, if your cat likes and can tolerate milk, feel free to offer it as an occasional treat. Milk is a good source of nutrients for those cats who don't find it upsets their tummy. But if you never give milk to your cat, she's not missing anything important.
Q: Do cats purr only when they're happy?
A: Expert cat observers know that purring isn't just a sound of contentment. Cats also purr when they're dying. Purring has been described as something a cat does when he's with a friend or needs a friend, is happy or is in pain. It seems to be a sound that both conveys and creates comfort.
