Default Will eating cheese hurt my cat?

I had several cheeses in the refrigerator and was making me a toasted cheese sandwhich One my cat came over and began staring up at the counter. I gave her several chunks Of Colby. She loved it. I then gave her some American cheese which she eargerly ate. Provolone and Mozzarella she accepted, but was a little reluctant to try. Swiss, she sniffed for a while and then eat it. The Parmesan cheese she took one sniff and walked awy. Don't blame her, I don't like the stinking stuff either. Didn't have the heart to try the Smoked Jalapeņo Cheddar on her.

Hi Marshel
You can gave a cat cheese, I give one of my boys cheese all the time for a treat, just don't go over board because it will bind them up

Cheese can upset a cats stomach just like milk can. Dont be alarmed if she leaves you a nice runny, stinky, present in the litter box.

A small nibble now and then is a treat most cats enjoy....don't overdo it tho.

Midnight, the wild cat, gets a small (1/4 sheet of a cheese slice), and some cat treats, just before he heads out for a night of roaming the woods with the foxes.

Evie will eat cheese- with no 'consequences' either (a small miracle for her, trust me!). Oddly she won't eat it if we feed it to her... but if she has the chance to 'steal' some. Suddenly she is a stealthy hunter!

the cat might get hurt if it anything like jolene cat and cheese, she can hear cheese from anywhere in the house and begging is too light of a term for what happens then..

I've given my guys small amounts but I think anything more than a few bites would cause something I'd prefer not to deal with (or smell).

Many cats are lactose-intolerant, so the lactose in cheese and other dairy products can cause digestive upset (diarrhea, etc.). Also, dairy is very high in phosphorus, which is a major no-no for any cat with any degree of renal insufficiency.

How about yogurt? My girls are obsessed with yogurt

As of cheese, I give my girls a small bite if I'm eating. But since usually I don't eat cheese, they don't get that treat a lot.
