I used to hand-milk goats. I think the smell varies according to what the goat has been eating - if they've got at silage avoid it like the plague! The texture described doesn't sound right, though.
Recently, I was reading that the number of cats with lactose intolerance has been considerably over-estimated. It seems that it is much more common occurrence in Oriental breeds and mixes rather than in the general cat population. I have never had a cat with this problem thankfully.
