We were asked a question this past week as to whether or not it is a good idea for a grown cat to drink milk.
So, we went to the experts at Vet Street. “Cats do not gain anything nutritionally from milk that is not present in a well-balanced commercial [cat food] diet,” explains Dr. Heinze, adding that it should be treated more like a very occasional high-calorie treat than an everyday food.
The best liquid for your cat is water. Be sure to have plenty of fresh water around for your cat to drink. Always consult with your vet as to his or her recommendations for your cat’s diet and overall health.

Pet adoption has increased since 2009, despite adverse economic conditions. Currently, 29% of dogs and 33% of cats are adopted from shelters and rescue groups each year, while the number of healthy and treatable pets losing their lives for lack of a home is now 2.7 million. Watch as our friend Garfield talks about the Shelter Pet Project
Bringing that number all the way to zero is the goal of “The Shelter Pet Project,” a national advertising campaign which aims to encourage millions of pet lovers to make shelters the first choice and desired way for acquiring companion animals.
