Cat Milk

(10 Posts)

Just wondering if anyone on here gives their cats cat milk? We've never bothered, we tried our black boy and fluffy girl cat on it once and neither of them took to it.

But since we took in old lady cat, she can't get enough of the stuff, has a small drop in the morning and the evening. Doesn't seem to be upsetting her tummy, is it ok to continue to give her a little bit every day? Or is it something that should only be given very rarely, if ever? She's had such a tough little life, just want to give her whatever makes her happy in her sunset years (which at the moment seems to be fresh chicken and cat milk!)

Seniorboy just doesn't like the stuff - although he's been known to steal fresh cow's milk left lying in a glass on the floor (luckily he doesn't seem to have lactose intolerance) - so he just gets water and wet food for his official liquid intake. I know what you mean about treats though. He gets a cold meat lunch pretty well every day. (usually cold roast chicken but sometimes a slice of ham.)

How old is she - ish?

Shes going to be 20, born 1994 according to her microchip!

Blimey - that's an older girl indeed. I'd be giving her pretty well what she wanted I think. (Within reason - subject to something not being actively bad for her and assuming she doesn't develop a taste for caviar!)

20? shock Ooh yes give her whatever she likes.

I'm picturing a cat living on smoked salmon and double cream from now on.

I give my 2 cat milk

They don't need it but I like it and if I lived on a diet of dried biscuits and stinky cat food, I'd want a little bit of something I fancied too

I tell you Fluffy, I'd give Seniorboy smoked salmon if he would eat it! (He dislikes it.) It would be cheaper than his ruddy little Gourmet tins.

She's already been waking me up in the morning for her cat milk (and chicken!) and then sneaking onto my side of the bed to curl up and fall asleep, while i'm in the shower! My boyfriend thinks she's trying to userp me.

I agree, at that age she deserves whatever she likes and makesher happy!

I have been dishing up refrigerated cat milk in this weather. Two love it and one is indifferent.
