I feed my cats what ever they moew for. Like when I am cleaning chicken to cook. They are scratching the cabinets trying to get up to the sink. I have to give them a piece to stop. They also love it when I am cooking beef. They have to have a few pices of the raw meat. I can't open a can of sardines with them around. I don't give them this due to smeely up the house later. pretty much they eat meow indoor formula dry food.

My vet suggested a can of wet catfood--cause cats need protein not so many carbohydrates. I also feed my cats a high end dry food like Purina or Iams is what I feed my kitties. If they eat just dry food, then they get too many carbs and become overweight cats, which can cause a lot of problems.

Adult cats do tend to develop a little lactose intolerance, so it might not be a good idea to give it to them so much. Unless they've had milk all their lives... You should give them some commercial cat food as well, because that's formulated with all the proper nutrition for good health and is designed to be easy on their stomachs. Cats need more protein than dogs, but they also need carbs, dairy, vegetables...

Cats sure do love tuna and milk, however, and I could be wrong, I heard adults cats area actually lactose intolerant and are not supposed to drink milk and there may be high amounts of mercury in some Tuna. I have the same problem with my cats in terms of trying to find soemthing different for them to eat. The poor little buggers eat the same ol' thing day after day!
