Milk for kittens/cats
My kitten is 9 weeks old and I give him small amounts of skim milk which he enjoys. It does not make his tummy work. However I have been told that milk is bad for a kitten or a cat. Is this true and should I stop it.

Dear Niki

Just water is fine. Milk can cause diarrhoea so bets to give water and a good quality dry food.
