Cats have a very different organism from ours and the foods to be given to them are therefore very different, so it is normal that some are not suitable and that others are good but in different quantities. So should you give your cat ice cream? I tell you everything in this complete and detailed article.

Giving ice cream to your cat: No nutritional benefit

The organism of cats does not recognize sugar which is of no use to it, giving it sugary foods will therefore only make fat, the same for milk when the cat reaches adulthood, because cats no longer digest lactose. in adulthood, it is therefore completely useless to give them ice, because its composition is completely unsuitable for it.

Milk is a myth concerning cats because it only makes fat in adulthood and no longer serves them anything once weaning is over, only vegetable milk can bring them something organically.

As a general rule, only 4ml of milk per cat’s body weight can be given to them without them experiencing transit problems. But again, animal milk is useless to him.

Potentially Harmful

Regarding milk, adult cats are often allergic to it (specifically to lactose), which is terrible for their stomachs. Regarding sugar, it is also totally unsuitable for his body and can disturb it. Giving your cat ice cream is therefore not only unnecessary but also potentially dangerous. Your cat may then vomit and have diarrhea after drinking milk.

In most cases, he will not touch it because the cold does not attract him or the smell of sugar, but some young cats can sometimes taste it out of curiosity and suffer the effects.

What is the risk of a cat eating ice cream?

A cat that eats ice cream will vomit and have diarrhea because its stomach will reject it because of the harmfulness of the ice cream.

As for chocolate ice cream, it contains theobromine which can be fatal in high doses and which will intoxicate it even in small doses.

Finally, after eating ice cream, the cat will have a sharp pain in the brain due to a reaction to the cold of the blood vessels and nerves in reaction to the cold. This is called frozen brain syndrome.

Homemade ice cream with natural fruits, lactose-free, chocolate-free and sugar-free milk: The only alternative

Only this type of ice cream is good for the cat, but do not give it directly from the freezer because cats hate the cold and it will not want it or react badly to it.

Also know that your cat will absorb a lot of carbohydrates by eating ice cream and that carbohydrates should represent only 33% of the cat’s nutritional intake, the rest should be composed of lipids and proteins.

Cat eating ice cream: The final word

A cat that eats ice cream will experience serious health problems and should therefore be given ice cream without any toxic ingredients so that it can eat it without suffering any health problems later on.
