Is it safe to give cats milk?

I wanted to give my cat some milk today, but my sister told me that it wasn't good for her and could end up giving her worms. Is this true?

    It is a bad idea. It may cause diarrhea and/or vomiting.

      True. Cats do not tolerate cows milk. Best for cats is only one. That's of course cats milk normally brough from supermarkets.

      Cow milk has not been pasteurized it has not been cooked boiled Etc the milk coming out of your refrigerator has been treated and or Modified by man it is no longer pure. Milk is bad for cats. Even a vet will tell you do not give a cat milk

    Not worms, but cats, especially young ones, can't digest cow's milk and will get sick in some cases.

    No, most cats are lactose intolerant which is why they should only be given water. It shouldn't give them worms, just a very upset stomach and if more serious they may need a vet. There is some specially formulated milk for cats but it isn't needed and is a waste of money

    How would it give them worms? What it most likely will give them is diarrhea since most cats are allergic to the lactose in cow's milk. Just give them a quality kibble that's grain free and canned food not things you "want" to give them.

    Worms don't magically appear out of thin air, but it will give the cat the runs
