yogurt
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.

Thanks for your replies!  I think that a little yogurt treat (once in a while) should be okay.

Milk products that have lactose is a no no. I think yogurt is okay...but it's wise never to give kitty to much non-meat human food. A treat for special affection time is okay. :)
