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.

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

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. 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 or CatSip are a couple examples. I prefer the CatSip because it doesn't contain sugar like the Cat Milk does.
