If you really want to give your cat milk, then buy a pet milk specifically for cats and dogs. It has then had the lactose removed. Many many cats are lactose intolerant and will get tummy upsets, diarrhoea, allergies and even excema from drinking cows milk.
Although cats like tepid/luke-warm milk, you must never give a cat hot milk. It will burn not only their mouth, but throat etc .. Just as if you yourself drank a cup of too-hot liquid.

No and usually best not to give them any actual milk. Most can't handle it and become sick. They are lactose intolerant and don't have the enzymes to digest it properly so end up with very upset tummies which can lead to other problems. It also wouldn't be any sort of proper diet in quantity because it does not have what they need (like taurine) and most things not specifically formulated for cats don't.
