.. Cat Milk

 

 

 

Cats are usually lactose intolerant, cows milk etc can cause them considerable discomfort!

Milk especially formulated for cats is available in the shops, it is not just a gimmick.

Cat Milk is a treat & it should never be a replacement or substitute for fresh water!

 

Water is essential, even if you do not witness your cat drinking it, fresh water must be available.

 

It is not uncommon for cats to drink without their keepers ever seeing them do so, they will still need several fresh water bowls around the house to encourage them, especially if they are on a dry food diet.

This is important even if you don't believe that they use them often, a low water intake can cause health problems.

 

Some cats like to eat cheese

A little is ok, but for the same reasons as above dairy products should be avoided. Some cat foods contain formulated cheese such as Applaws tuna and cheese which these cats might enjoy instead.
