  • Kittens produce an enzyme called lactase. This is used to digest lactose, a sugar found in milk. As they get older (up to about 12 weeks), they start eating other foods and lose the ability to create lactase. Since the enzyme is no longer produced, cats have a much more difficult time digesting lactose. Simply put, cats are lactose intolerant.
  • What gondola said, but I have noticed that some cats don't beome lactose intolerant at all. These cats have usually been moggies rather than breeds. I have found that most oriental breeds are lactose intolerant, but I have also found that many breeds that originate in 'european' colder climates seem to tolerate milk quite well. If you would like to feed milk to your cats/kittens some pet food producers have milk for lactose intolerant cats, and I am told that goats milk is also suitable, but I am not sure about that.
