But beware: cheese crackers are a complementary food for cats, to be associated with complete foods and be given only in small amounts, always after speaking with your veterinarian. This is because cats can eat cheese, a source of animal protein, but in moderation as it is high in fat and contains lactose, which adult felines cannot digest. Cats are actually lactose intolerance because the production of the enzyme lactase, essential to digest this sugar, begins to decrease from the first 2-3 weeks of life, until it disappears completely around 6-8 weeks, once breastfeeding is over.

That’s why it’s also important choose the right cheese: Fresh and hard cheeses, such as pecorino and caciotte, are allowed, but Parmesan is ideal, because it is naturally lactose-free and rich in important nutrients, such as calcium. So let’s see how to use it. prepare cheese sandwiches.
