Can cats eat whipped cream?
Cats can eat whipped cream on the proviso that it is only given in small amounts and only if the cat hasn’t experienced symptoms associated with lactose intolerance in the past.
Nursing kittens produce an enzyme called lactase in their small intestine. This enzyme breaks down lactose in dairy and converts it into glucose and galactose to produce energy. Once a kitten weans, the body greatly decreases or completely shuts down lactase production.
