Can Cats Eat Mozzarella Cheese?

As a cat owner, you may wonder if your feline friend can enjoy the occasional nibble of mozzarella cheese. Cats are less renowned when it comes to mooching for food than dogs, but some of our feline friends have a definite soft spot for dairy treats.

While mozzarella cheese is not toxic to cats, it is not a good idea to feed it regularly. Cats are obligate carnivores, meaning their diet should primarily consist of meat.

Mozzarella cheese lacks many essential nutrients cats need for optimal health.

Additionally, some cats may be lactose intolerant, which can lead to digestive issues if they consume cheese.

A balanced diet of specially formulated cat food is more their speed, leaving the occasional dab of mozzarella a rare, if appreciated, treat.
