Some cats are lactose intolerant. I probably wouldn’t give them anymore.

Kittens aren’t lactose intolerant, they become so when they grow up. The kitties will be fine, but it’s really best not to give them the high processed american singles kind of cheese.

I still give my furbaby (4) the remnants of my milk from cereal. It’s basically the film left over with maybe a little puddle. It’s a treat.

@hiroshymatetrastar:  Mmmm. Good stuff. They’ll be just fine. Don’t worry about it.

That seems like an awful lot for little tummies to handle.   I would have given them one bite each and been done with it.  My cats love cheese, but they only get a tiny bit each time I give them some, (like when I’m using shredded cheese, they’ll get a piece or two…enough to taste it, but not enough to cause digestive upset).

Also, cats can be just as bad at begging as dogs can, so if you don’t want them begging every time you eat something, it’s best to nip it in the bud now.  It’s hard to resist those cute little kitten faces, but it can get really annoying when they beg all the time.

Treats are fine, just remember to keep them small. A piece of cheese is a lot of food for something that weighs 5 pounds!

Cats can have dairy, but some don’t deal with it very well. We give our cats a bit of cheese and sometimes yogurt as a treat every now and then. I wouldn’t give them more than what you did, if that much at all, though.

That being said, depending on the type of cheese, even adult cats might be able to eat it.  Sometimes, the bacteria in the cheese breaks down the lactose, so there’s a lot less of it or none at all.  My Darling Husband is lactose intolerant, but he can eat a ton more cheese and/or yogurt than other, non-bacteria-filled dairy products.

Like everyone else said, though, moderation is key.  Your babies only need the slightest bit, if any at all!
