Subject: RE: BS: Getting a cat to take pills!
I second Liz's endorsement of the "piller". I bought one from our vet for about $3 US and it's the only thing that has worked with Mikey. This is the cat who doesn't like canned food, treats or any form of people food so hiding pills in something is not an option. The "piller" is quick and easy. Pry the mouth open, shoot the pill to the back of the throat and then blow in his face to make him swallow....Done. Follow that with LOTS of cuddles and strokes and "good kitty" and she'll get used to the whole process pretty quickly.
