Just got our new kitties this week. Just having fun and bringing some joy into our home.
Myhusband and I are 57 and 59 and we sure are having fun laughing.
Just was checking and I see that we dont really give our kittens milk any longer. Any talk on that?

See ya soon

Welcome to the board, suzkitties. I have no kitten experience at all, but there are quite a few on board who do, so with luck someone will chime in on the milk question. :fingerscr

About all I'm qualified to do for felines is bug you for pics. :o Got any? :D

Hi suzkitties! Welcome to the forum. :)

Aren't kitties awesome!! Not a day goes by where I don't laugh my head off at the crazy antics of my 4. I could just sit around for hours watching them and playing with them. They do indeed bring much joy. :cloud9: How old are your guys? Got any pics?

As for the milk thing, I don't tend to give it to cats because they often become lactose intolerant as they grow up. A small amount when they're kittens probably isn't a big deal though. There are some cat-specific milk products with most of the lactose removed (and stuff like taurine added) if you'd like to continue giving them a little treat. Whiskas Cat Milk (http://www.whiskas.ca/en-ca/Products/Cat-Milk/Whiskas-CatMilk.aspx) or CatSip (http://www.petsmart.com/product/index.jsp?productId=3200147) are a couple examples. I prefer the CatSip because it doesn't contain sugar like the Cat Milk does.
