    Hello everyone,

    Did post about this on thursday but must have got lost in the ether or fell off the moderators desk!! as I'm a newbie.

    I would like your views on the Cat/Kitten milk sold in supermarkets etc. Haven't researched about it but gather its lactose reduced and usually goats milk. Some of mine wont drink water unless its out of a puddle, the fish tank or the loo:eek:. But they drink the milk.

    As certain brands have soared in price and some disappeared completely I was wondering if Lactofree milk usually for humans! would be a safe replacement.

    It doesnt give me belly ache like normal semi when I drink it (havent been tested for any intolerance etc) and it would work out a lot cheaper than the cartons. £1.20 - 30 a litre compared to 50-90p for 200 mls.

    Would like your comments. Have given it to the cats and they like it.

    Helen

    Hiya

    Bibi loves cat milk too - I buy shops brand and it is much cheaper and she still loves it. (Asda's own seems very reasonable) Pets at home even do a lighter version alongside their full strength one - and there was a multibuy offer recently.

    I'm lactose intolerant myself (related to medication), and have the Lactofree milk - but it is a lot thinner than the cat milk. I havent tried her on it because it looks so thin in comparision to the cat milk. Bibi will have a full milky beard with the cat milk!!

    I gave my cat regular lactose free milk from the store but he still got runny stools from it. Is there something else in that special cat milk?
