Is Duffy one of the lucky ones not lactose intolerant? I don't like the runny poos after my guys get into it. :yuck:

That second one is cute. She's got this sad look like she wants it so bad! Then the third one made me nervous! All I could see was a tipped over glass.

I've only ever let one of my gang try milk, and that was before I knew about the lactose intolerance. Poor kitty Vlad.

Please do not fed your cat milk. It can cause D'rea. The only time milk is good..is milk from their mom, when they were kittens. Cows milks, etc is not good for them. To hard on their stomach.

Aw I see you don't mind a little kitty slobber in your beverages either eh growler?! ;) :laughing: I can barely finish my cereal here without Windy and Palomine vying for the first licks at the leftover milk. They never get much, but just enough to think they are being really sneaky, and having a really special treat!

(and around here even guests have to watch a glass of ice water... Smoke and Fagan and Asker are always on the lookout for an unattended one of those!)

So nice to see Duffy in action... loved the way she sized it up first.... plan of attack is always important!:lovestruck::cloud9:

I think it is well known that most cats are lactose intolerance. And I said it can cause D'rea.
Anyway..it is known that it is hard on their stomach and is the least thing to give...but what do I know...I am just a registered Vet Tech and a Animal Protection Officer who works with animals on a daily basis.

Aww Growler Duffy is soo cute,does not look a year over 5:lovestruck:
As for the milk,I've never tried milk with my current guys,but my 3 before them(peppi,cookie and sammy)always got a little bit of milk,with no problems.
Growing up,my cat always drank milk and ate only fish:shrug:
No cat-food in those days,my mom used to cook fisheads(for free at the fishmarket)and that's all he ate and drank:shrug:

I read somewhere that some people their cats heavy cream instead of milk. That must be why.

I know mine love the taste of it, but the poops isn't fun. I can always give them a tiny bit of cream or half and half as a treat. I'm talking like less than a teaspoon. A mini teaspoon.:D

From the Cornell website....

Cats can probably tolerate a little milk

and that's probably all Duffy is getting. ;)

If the milk isnt harming Duffy in any way, i am sure its fine to give her a little bit..i mean its not like growler let her drink the whole glass..

Thank you for your concern. Duffy has never had any issues with having a bit of milk on occasion, she also takes probiotics daily so she's covered on that end. :)

Thanks scm, I especially like the 1st pic :D Duffy says thanks too :cat:

ancientgirl

On the rare occasion I have vanilla ice-cream, I let Vlad have a bit of it. LOL, the other day I just found myself not even worrying about his slobber, I just had the rest from the spoon when he'd finished.

Heck, there's cat hair all over my place, on my bed, bits of litter on the bed, I've even found a stray hair in my mouth now and then. Meh, what's a bit of kitty slobber and hair in your milk too.:D

Growler, you have probably posted this before, but what kind of probiotics do you feed Duffy? Is there a particular brand you use and how much to you give her? I'd like to start giving my gang some of those.

Jim, I have to say that I work for one of the best spcas that I know of. We don't euth for cage space/healthy/sound animals. Every animal that comes though our doors gets the best care. We work with Toronto Wildlife Center and the Owl Foundation.

My job is a passion of mine. While it is emotionally draining, it is a very rewarding profession.

How do I deal with stress...I am still trying to figure out how you do that *L*. As you know the profession is not a 9-5 job. You work dayshift, nightshift, on-call, weekends, holidays. I know in my case, one of my biggest problems is mentally I take everything home. I think about the wildlife that I brought in and hope that they recover to better health, so that they can be released. The stray that I hopefully can catch tomorrow and so on.

I see alot of bad things on a daily basis and quite honestly since coming into this field have lost my respect for humanity and quite frankly sometimes hate the human race.

With the bad, there is good. I get to see the terrfied stray that was so deyhrated and emansicated grow stonger everyday, while gaining trust in humans. Then see it get adopted into a loving home. The wildlife that after rehabbed, gets released back into the wild. Dogs that are so scared, when they are first brought in, they crower in their cages. As time goes on..they greet you with a wag from the tail. All od the sick/inkured animals are humanely put down and no longer have to suffer.

Everday I make a difference in a animals life. Whether domestic, wild, livestock, exoitc. I am in love with my job.

:laughing: You should see her when there's ice cream around :lovestruck: :cat:

Duffy has used Wysong Pet Inoculant (http://www.wysong.net/Merchant2/merchant.mvc?Screen=PROD&Store_Code=WOTTPWS&Product_Code=PI011&Category_Code=SUP&Product_Count=10) is a good one, liquid must be refridgerated, directions as per bottle. Now she is taking PB8 (http://www.nutritionnow.com/PB8.htm) capsules 1 in her breakfast & 1 in her dinner, she's about 11-12 lbs. Both were vet recommended :)

such a pretty duffy..:cloud9::cloud9:

love the picture with her head in the glass...:lovestruck::cloud9:

Thanks Breeze, Duffy is a very special little girl :cloud9: She's gotten very good @ drinking out of a glass even when I have to tilt it so the liquid is closer towards her :D

I have that problem too! Jade and Teegan like to come up and share my cereal in the morning. They aren't too crazy about oatmeal though. Just the cold stuff. Too bad I usually have oatmeal. :rolleyes:
I think if Duffy can handle milk Duffy should get her milk. My Pepe :rip: got milk once or twice a week for almost all of his 19 years. He was pretty happy. It sure doesn't seem to be hurting the pretty girl! :cloud9:
