No, we wouldn’t recommend letting your cat drink coconut milk. Coconut is not considered toxic to cats but it does contain a certain level of fat and oil that might make your cat sick, especially if your cat drinks a decent amount of coconut milk in one sitting. It’s possible for cats to suffer from issues like diarrhea and stomach upsets if they drink too much coconut milk.

Coconut milk may not pose as big of a threat as cow milk (given cats can be lactose intolerant) but there is still a certain amount of risk coconut-based products can introduce to your cat’s health. Instead of coconut milk, your cat may enjoy an occasional treat like Whiskas Cat Milk.
