Milk thistle does taste pretty bad, and on top of it, the liquid probably has alcohol in it, which cats really hate. What about trying Denamarin. It's a combo of SAMe and sylibin (milk thistle derivative). Unfortunately it's a rather large tablet and you'd probably have the same problem with the taste if you crushed it, but it's supposed to be quite effective for liver issues. Something else to consider is L-Carnitine.

What sort of liver disease does your cat have? Any ideas what's causing it?
