Want to know if cats and kittens can eat whipped cream? The short answer is: most of the time, NO! But during a potentially stressful situation like during an injection, whipped cream is used in small quantities by veterinarians and rescuers as a safe and high-value treat that helps to soothe the kitten and decrease fear and anxiety. Always talk to a vet if you have questions about your cat's diet and health, and to stay on the safe side, avoid feeding cats foods made for humans!

  • I buy my cats a treat that's basically a tube of pureed tuna. They love it so much that it makes clipping nails completely painless! Sometimes I can clip all their nails without it now since they've been desensitized to it through the tuna treats.

  • My grandparents give their cat whipped cream every day. I've told them several times that cats are lactose intolerant. But they completely ignore it. "We've been doing this for years!" But that doesn't mean it's right. I have no idea why they don't want to understand that it's bad for the cat.

  • Isn't lactose free cowsmilk/dairy products common in other countries? I'm from Finland and you can easily find that in every grocery store, but that might have something to do with the fact that it's more common to be lactose intolerant here than in other northern countries(because of genetics).

  • Is it ok if i call my cat something other than her name? My cats official name is 'Penny'. She's a cute little cat and I do like her name. But I find myself calling her other things. For example, if she's being extra cute I call her "Shnookum Bookums" or "Bubby Wubby". Sometimes even the combination of the two. She sometimes meows and rubs her head against me. Then I'd say something like "Aw you're such a Shnookum Bookum bubby wubby" is this alright??? I dont want to confuse her. Thanks,

  • I sometimes give a treat to my adult cat. I literally give him a nail size bit of whipped cream. Its not harming him right? I would say i give him with a month interval and hes two years old, ive probably given him that nail sized whipped cream like 5 times, so its not frequent. Is it an issue?

Then one day, she broke her hip and her vet prescribed lactulose to help her go (possibly the most hated feline medication of all time)... and my baby girl LOVED it. 😻 But I can’t rlly treat her with it for the exact reason in this video. And it’s literally the only food she’s ever loved. 😿

  • A small amount of dairy is a nice treat for an adult cat. A small amount of grated cheese, or cream cheese, or even a little drop of milk. I know some cats are lactose intolerant, but for those who aren't, a small amount of dairy as a treat won't harm.

  • If I ever give my cats human food (usually my cereal or yogurt) I always give them the empty bowl after I’ve eaten it. They get a TINY taste but don’t get enough to really get sick. I am careful what kids of foods I give them tho. Also my cereal has almond milk anyway so it’s non dairy :)

  • Cow's milk is made for cows. Cats should never consume dairy, nor humans neither. I had a little girl cat who went nuts when I used to consume whipped cream and I'd get the mixer out. She'd come yowling at me. I also used to spray it on her nose from the ready can. I believe its what contributed to her tennis ball tumour on her spleen she eventually developed that spread throughout her body unbeknownst to me until it was far too late. Its loaded with IGF-1s that accelerate cancer growth.

  • I was always told the following. 1) Humans = Omnivores. We can eat and survive on any foods. 2) Dogs = Omnivores, so giving vegetables etc to your dog in a balanced diet is ok. Some no-goes like Chocolate etc. 3) Cats = Obligate Carnivore, which means that not only should they eat meats, they actually HAVE to have meats. Giving cats vegetables is really not a good idea. My neighbour, a vegan, thought it was ok to force her cats to eat the same as she did. Needless to say, the cats health was not good. I had to explain to her that reasons why what she was doing was bad, and thus causing her pets health issues. (Took some convincing let me tell you.) Anyway, got the cats onto a meat diet, their health improved drastically and she learned a thing or two.

  • That's really good to know, I only give a "taste" of whipped cream to my fur baby kitty girl which is a little bit on the tip of my finger and no more, it's just a little treat. I realize it's not good so I just do it occasionally, sometimes I hide so she won't see that I'm eating my dessert. I will definitely not give her any more, I love her so much so I'll just give her her kitty treats only. Thank you Miss Hannah for all you do, I am learning so much about kittens and cats by watching your videos. ❤🐱🐱😊

  • I have to put butter in the cupboard because my cat will do ANYTHING to get to it. Same with bread. If I’m eating cereal I have to keep the bowl in my hands at all times. Dont even get me started on cheese. My cat loves dairy, even tho it gives him diarrhea, so I have to lock it up like he’s a raccoon.

  • I didn't realise that was why cats can't eat dairy - I knew they couldn't, but knowing it's lactose intolerance makes so much sense. As a lactose intolerant human, I make silly choices sometimes to eat stuff anyway sometimes, but cats can't make those decisions. They don't specifically know 'oh this nice tasting thing is bad and will hurt my stomach a lot and possibly make me throw up.' Cat owners have the responsibility -once the cat is an adult seeing as of course they'd still need to digest lactose as a kitten- to not give them food that's harmful. This makes me understand it a lot more - it's always been phrased as 'cats are allergic to milk' but actually saying lactose intolerant makes more sense to me. Thank you for making such an informative video! Really useful to know.

  • our cats will do their darndest to retrieve yogurt containers from the trash/sink if they need to be rinsed for recycling. Sometimes we're naughty and just let them lick out the last few licks but thankfully the process that turns milk into yogurt consumes most of the lactose (which is why a lot of people who are lactose intolerant can still enjoy the occasional yogurt or hard cheese). And there is nothing cuter than seeing a barn cat get a squirt of milk directly from the goat being milked. Again, goat's milk is much, much lower in lactose and was used as an alternative to human breast milk for lactose intolerant infants before formulas were widespread/in countries where formulas were unreliable or unavailable. Again though, just an occasional treat. I'll never understand people who give saucers of milk to their cats...

  • They for sure can. I've had more than 10 cats and they all absolutely LOVE whipped cream and they all eat/lick it (except one, who's a bad eater anyway) off course it might not be healthy, but they for sure love it. And in fact... all my cats seem healthy regardless so apparently it isn't as bad as humans make it seem like. I think it's their favorite food as well. It's the one thing they NEVER refuse!
