My cat Huni doesn't like water much - except when the tap is dripping and she puts her head under it!! lol
But she likes semi-skimmed milk.
Is this ok to give her, she does so love it......?
Most cats are lactose-intolerant which mean that the milk can cause diarrhea. You can get some kitty milk at pet stores but that won't be enough to hydrate her.
You may want to look at some of the water fountains as they provide running water which may encourage her to drink.
I'm blessed with three lactose-tolerant cats, so we can all have milk as a treat every once in a while.
But it really isn't good for them in large quantities. The advice everyone else has given you here is great, I can't really add much.
As for milk and cream... cats LOVE milk and cream but older cats don't have enough bacteria in their intestines to break down the lactose it contains, and there for causes upset stomach and diarrhea.
