Give a motherfuckin cat a glass of milk and see if he don't drink that sh*t up.
Humans (some, used to be all), as well as all other animals develop lactose intolerance
after infancy. Technically it is not something we are supposed to drink. Animals don't eat barbecued ribs and eggs benedict because they don't have the cookware and opposable thumbs to make them. What other foods do all animals actually develop an intolerance to? There have been studies showing why milk isn't so good for you after all. jlluch touched on that, funny how no one responded.
Oh, and you're not supposed to feed cats milk for a reason.
And yes you can get sufficient amounts of calcium without dairy if you have a balanced diet. Funny how the countries with the highest rates of conditions associated with low calcium consumption are also dairy consuming countries.
