Are humans the only species who drink milk as adults?

I was drinking a glass of milk the other day and that got me thinking that no other animal to my knowledge drinks milk past their infant stages. One could argue that cats might but it isn't good for them to do.**Are humans the only animal that are able to drink milk as adults and not have it cause issues?**Of course, I know some people do have lactose intolerance too.
