My kids like to give our kitten a little milk.

My kids like to give our kitten a little milk.She loves it and quickly laps it up, but I’ve heard milk isn’t suitable for cats. Is that true?
A: After a cat has weaned at 4-8 weeks they no longer need milk. Your cat may love milk but your carpet will not. Cow’s milk can cause diarrhea in cats. Cow’s milk has a different nutritional makeup than cat’s milk, one that’s hard for felines of any age to digest. I’d skip the serving of milk and if the kids keep feeding the cat milk assign them to carpet cleaning duty!
