    I drink about 1.5L of milk daily. Plus about 4 litres of water and 1L of energy drinks. I ain't pooping out Niagara Falls.

    I should know how harmful milk is to animals. Hedgehogs are lactose intolerant. That's why you don't give them milk. As far as I know, I haven't dehydrated and died.

    I drink 1/3 of a gallon daily and my body has only had digestive problems from dairy once. And that was from eating a 1/2 pound of colby jack cheese in one sitting.

    It's usually best not to feed animals and never give them milk. Water is never a problem though. That and always wash your hands,... (diseases, worms some of which are lethal,...)
    Bah. So I'm going to die because I helped a little cute thingy. The world is so unfair

    I add milk to my cereals each morning and do it in my coffee. Apart from that, I hardly drink it. Drank plenty of chocolate milk as a kid and I absolutely love drinking hot chocolate milk during winter.

    Milk is fine, the more the better if you ask me.

    Cow's milk really is not. At the Rescue center we have to use special milk for certain animals. Especially younger animals are sensitive with this. Also there is no reason to feed them. If they truly are ill or weakened, the best thing is expert help (not a standard vet though).

    Also why are people just telling random stuff, they present as fact because it just seems reasonable to them?

    Are you sure about that? I was hoping most were super intelligent Pinguins with fingers wearing silly hats. But I never checked.

    Well there's your problem. You should read the news more often. Studies claim that possibly up to 100% of people are in fact people and not penguins. Although, philosophers have questioned this study, saying that we cannot objectively claim that we are in fact not penguins due to the fallibility of our senses making the observation in the first place.

    Cow's milk is obviously not good for other animals. They're not cows. And really, we shouldn't be drinking milk, but we have built up a tolerance to lactose. And some people are still unable to drink milk. Hence, lactose intolerance.

    Eating a different kind of steak everyday is extravagant. Silly hats are plain silly. That's why they are silly hats.

    Rodents are my preferred inside pets.

    Hedgehogs or great, especially since you can designer-breed them ad get crazy colors.

    He didn't move because he was terrified and their coats make them appear as vegetation. It was a mixture of utter shock and trying to appear as a shrub. If they spike up, they are trying to be intimidating, which can be really funny to see, but they usually only do it against other small predators

    Hedgies are far more low maintenance than guinea pigs, and just a little less smarter than rats. They are not anti social like hamsters, so you can keep them together and they play and talk to each other at night.

    They call me Willard round these parts

    This is the first thing I thought of when I saw the thread.


    Also for me dairy makes me sick so I shouldn't have it.

    We don't get such creatures down here.
