Can Cats Eat Brie Cheese?

As much as the enticing aroma of Brie cheese may tempt our feline friends, it is not an appropriate food for them.

Cats are obligate carnivores, meaning their diet primarily consists of animal protein. Cheese, including Brie, is high in fat and lactose, which can be difficult for cats to digest. Feeding your cat Brie can lead to digestive upset, including vomiting or diarrhea.

It's best to stick to a balanced diet recommended by your veterinarian. In addition, cats are not immune to the ravages of listeria, so unpasteurized cheese is never a good idea.
