We think of cats as drinkers of milk. In fact, cats can be lactose intolerant. This means that their digestive system cannot break down the lactose, the sugar contained in milk. When this happens, the lactose causes imbalances in the stomach and intestines which can lead to bloating, gas and diarrhea.
A well-balanced cat or kitten food contains all the calories and nutrition that your cat needs. As well, cats should have clean water available at all times.
