I figure it's extra fluid, and take the added calories into account, and just make sure I have a big supply on hand.
I was giving it to LuckyGirl when we first brought her home, the vet suggested I give her some kitten milk, cause she was so skinny and under nourished. Well then I tried to back her off of it once she got to 6lbs....yeah right. She told me where to go & how to get there. And stood firmly at the base of my fridge crying until I gave her the milk. And I was already a big pile of mush with her anyway
....she was so skinny, with no tail, born with a birth defect, alone, starving, and unloved....so I came to TCS. And Mackenzie suggested slowly adding water to her milk. And that's what I did. I still give it to them daily. But they get a small saucer, and it's 1/2 water anyway. So I don't feel so bad. But they LOVE it. And lap it up till it's gone. If you even take the lime green sport bottle out of the fridge LuckyGirl will run to the bowl freaking out, cause that's what we keep it in when we add the water to the milk. And Louie....I find that it calms him a little when he's drinking it....he purrs the whole time, like he's remembering his kitty momma....
