    How to Give a Cat a Pill

    1. Pick up cat and cradle it in the crook of your left
    arm as if holding a baby. Position right forefinger and thumb on either side of cat's mouth and gently apply pressure to cheeks while holding pill in right hand. As cat opens mouth, pop pill into mouth. Allow cat to close mouth and swallow.

    top of wardrobe. Call spouse in from the garden.

    6. Kneel on floor with cat wedged firmly between knees,
    hold front and rear paws. Ignore low growls emitted by cat. Get spouse to hold head firmly with one hand while forcing wooden ruler into mouth. Drop pill down ruler and rub cat's throat vigorously.

    7. Retrieve cat from curtain rail. Get another pill from foil wrap. Make note to buy new ruler and repair curtains. Carefully sweep shattered figurines and vases from hearth and set to one side for gluing later.

    8. Wrap cat in large towel and get spouse to lie on cat with
    head just visible from below armpit. put pill in end of drinking straw, force mouth open with pencil and blow down drinking straw

    9. Check label to make sure pill not harmful to humans and drink one beer to take taste away. Apply band-aid to spouse's forearm and remove blood from carpet with cold water and soap.

    10. Retrieve cat from neighbor's shed. Get another pill. Open another beer. Place cat in cupboard, and close door onto neck, to leave head showing. Force mouth open with dessert spoon. Flick pill down throat with elastic band.


    11. Fetch screwdriver from garage and put cupboard door
    back on hinges. Drink beer. Fetch bottle of scotch.
    Pour shot, drink. Apply cold compress to cheek and check records for date of last tetanus shot. Apply whiskey compress to cheek to disinfect. Toss back another shot. Throw tee-shirt away and fetch new one from bedroom.

    12. Call fire department to retrieve the damn cat from
    the top of the tree across the road. Apologize to neighbor
    who crashed into fence while swerving to avoid cat.
    Take last pill from foil wrap.


    13. Using heavy-duty pruning gloves from shed, tie
    the little *&#%^'s front paws to rear paws with garden
    twine and bind tightly to leg of dining table. Push pill into
    mouth followed by large piece of filet steak. Be rough
    about it. Hold head vertically and pour two pints of water
    down throat to wash pill down.

    14. Consume remainder of scotch. Get spouse to drive
    you to the emergency room. Sit quietly while doctor stitches
    fingers and forearm and removes pill remnants from right eye.
    Call furniture shop on way home to order new table.

    15. Arrange for RSPCA to collect mutant cat from hell and call
    local pet shop to see if they have any hamsters.

    My dogs just came to look at the computer to see what I was laughing about. That was hilarious. Actually, one of my dogs isn't much better.

    I have a cat that will swallow, swallow, and swallow. I hold her wrapped in a towel and talk to her for a few minutes to make sure the pill is down. Of course, I find it on the floor half melted. Been there too many times!

    That is funny! I've been lucky. All cats I have had that need medication were such chow hounds that I could crush the piil and put in their canned cat food (or lamb baby food) and they ate it up! I always tell my vet I need a pill that can be crushed and mixed with food. For pills that couldn't be crushed, I'd hide them in tuna, make the cat smell the tuna, then make him reach for it to get it. By stretching his neck to get the morsel, the food and pill when right down. I guess I have been lucky!

    We had a Chocolate Lab that loved anything she thought was edible. All we had to do is line-drive a pill at her. She'd catch it, swallow it and beg for another! Gotta love those labs! (of course, there were many things she wasn't supposed to eat that she did over the years!).

    There is something new called Pill Pockets for cats. They look like teeny tiny cups made of treat food. I didn't think they would work, but they are great! Round ones fit fine - you fold the cup around the pill. The bigger pills, I broke in half and gave him two. He really loves them! I discovered them because the above is true!

    Thanks! So funny and pretty much true. We have the same problem getting one of our cats into the cage to go to the vet. Guess what, she never made it to the vet, even when the vet said I could come with no appt. and just sit and wait (if I could catch her).

    Last time we brought the cage in to loan it so someone else could have fun. It came in the back door....the cat disappeared....and we didn't see her until after suppertime!

    AND you get the fun of watching the dog try to smack the peanut butter!
