Lactose Intolerance

Did you know that your grown cat is actually lactose intolerant? That might seem weird, considering that you always see people leaving out saucers of milk for cats [and Santa!], but it's true. Kittens need their mother's milk when they are first born, but that weaning stage is soon over and your newly adopted kitten should be drinking water. If you are concerned that your kitten or cat does not drink water, or needs more calcium, then you can purchase special cat milk from your local vet or pet store. This is one of the reasons why Garfield should be laying off that lasagna! It would give him terrible stomach aches and diarrhoea!
