Adult cats are more prone to lactose intolerance than humans are;
whipped cream has a fair amount of lactose in it (if it's real whipped
cream, and not Cool Whip, etc.)
Watch for gas and diarrhea; those are the signs of lactose intolerance.
Keeping the whipped cream to as little as possible is a good idea in
Treats made for cats (Pounce, etc.) are far better for them than rich
human food which is outside their 'normal' diet.
