    I have seen so many say on here how popular these are with their cats I thought I would pick up some.

    Looking in Tesco, all I could see was a soup/gravy type thing...is this it or is there a range of different Lik e Lix?

    Thanks!

    From a tight-fisted oldie, it can be bought much cheaper from Wilko, B&M, Home Bargains:)

    Be aware that when you buy cheaper ones, you're not always getting like-for-like. They have a version in the same size of box with smaller tubes inside!

    I have 2 who love it and one who isn't keen...
    Useful for giving medicines if they are liquid or can be crushed up.

    Oscar took one sniff and turned his back on me! Hahahaaa! So he and Meeko are fully in agreement about these (and their love of Sheba too!) ;)

    Ours go mad for their cat froobs.

    My mother uses them when Loki is pretending to be fussy about his food.

    Barney prefers the Catit Creamy ones from Pets at Home - they do smell nicer to me too! I haven't tried one.... yet!

    Bertie loves the 'yoghurt' type ones - £1 in Sainsburys and 80p in Wilkinsons -both the Chicken and the Salmon flavours

    I've avoided the Webbox lick-e-lix for my cats so far as they contain milk products and mine all got diarrhoea when I gave them a bit of cows milk.

    Has anyone who feeds the Webbox product found it caused loose stools?

    I might give the Catit ones a try though.;)

    I haven't had any problems in this area with Bertie but then he only has half a sachet occasionally when he's being ultra fussy about eating !

    Milk products give Ollie loose stools but the lick-e-lix hasn't affected him that I've noticed. I find mixing some into a new food I'm introducing and dotting a little on top works much better than Fortiflora:p

    Hi Amanda, if Bobbie is able to digest milk products then it should be OK. The other ingredients are a small percentage of brewer's yeast and pomegranate, and vitamins and minerals (vit D3 and E, and biotin and taurine), so nothing that would be bad for her as such. Milk is quite high in fat, so I wouldn't give her too much, perhaps one or two a week as treats.....

    Thankyou @chillminx I have only been giving her them now and again I have to say she loves them.I give them to her if I think she has eaten something but fingers crossed not for a while.She does not have any set meal times so if her supper is early i tend to give her one before i go to bed in hope that I do not get a five oclock breakfast time
