On CatChannel and in Cat Fancy, we talk a lot about the problems with cats eating dairy products. Eating dairy gives cats dry skin. Cats who drink milk could get diarrhea. And after having milk, cats could vomit.
But we might have missed the most painful issue of all: eating ice cream could give cats brain freeze.
Just look at poor Napo. One minute he’s eating a sweet treat; next, he’s in for a world of hurt when the cold overwhelms his head and he’s locked into the dreaded condition of brain freeze.
Ease your cat’s noggin pain: limit ice cream for cats.
