Hi. I have a 12 year old male cat who absolutely loves yogurt. Whenever I have some for myself, he circles me like a shark. Because I'm a sucker, I'll allow him a taste (up to a teaspoon) and he laps it up immediately. My question is probably obvious. Is this okay for him? If I bought some unflavored yogurt at the grocery store, could this be a treat for him? If so, how much at a time? His weight right now is okay, not great but okay. As of September he weighed 11lbs which puts him slightly overweight, but not alarmingly so.
I was always told to not give milk to cats but never heard anything about yogurt. I wouldn't think that small of an amount would hurt him. He is after all at the ripe old age of 12 so you must be doing something right! :)
i do the same thing with my cats...the one loves it also I have heard that plain yogurt is good for cats (small amounts i think). I know people that give their cats milk also. i have not had any problems with cats so hopefully it's okay to give them.
