  • Cats can get sick from milk that is fresh. Most cats are actually lactose intolerant.

  • Its all good. If you want to feed them maybe some tuna or beef or something would be good.

  • dry cat food is best. If they are hungry they will eat it. But be careful cause they might never leave! lol

  • Cats will drink it but its not good for them
    Cats are obligate carnivores, they need meat to thrive.

  • Have you thought about taking them to a no kill shelter? That would be better than letting them freeze and it would make your dogs alot happier! I have always given my cats alittle milk every once in awhile. I usually gave them the milk left in my kids cereal bowls.
