Whiskas Cat Milk
Advantages: My cat loves it, high in calcium.
Disadvantages: The price.
My 21 year old rescue cat Chloe is at a stage in her life now where she really enjoys lifes little luxuries, such as a bowl of warm milk. Many cats, including my Chloe, cannot drink cows milk without getting an upset stomach, so this is where special cat milk comes in. Whiskas cat milk is sold is small 200ml plastic bottles for 57p each or a multipack of 3 bottles for £1.68. The bottles are white and purple with the Whiskas logo and cat, and also the product name on the front.
The milk looks much like ordinary cows milk, just prehaps slightly more off-white. If your cat has never had milk before gradually introduce it by giving just a teaspoon or so for a couple of days, to advoid tummy troubles. Chloe has about half a bottle each day so the 3 pack lasts her nearly a week. Once the bottle is opened I keep it in the fridge and make sure it is used up the next day, unopened bottles can be stored in the cupboard with your cats other food. Chloe is a bit of a madam and will only drink the milk if it is warm, so I pour it in a dish and heat it up in the microwave for a few seconds. The high amount of calicum in this cat milk would be helpful to a young kitten when it leaves its mother to go to its new home, although it shouldn't be feed to very young kittens under 8 weeks old. This isn't really the kind of product that should be fed daily, however at the grand old age of 21, it is one of the things that Chloe really looks forward too so I do give her a small bowl full every night before bed. At 57p for a small bottle it is rather expensive, Sainsburys do their own brand for 39p for a 200ml carton, but as I mentioned before, Chloe is a right fussy madam and knows the difference between Whiskas and Sainsburys and refuses to drink the cheaper version!
Summary: A great alternative to stomach-upset-causing cows milk!
