Subject: RE: BS: Getting a cat to take pills!
Fond memories of Miss Susie, the worst cat when it came to getting a pill into her. If I got it in and watched her swallow two or three times to ensure it went down, she would walk about a foot away and cough it up.

So when the vet prescribed pills I asked for liquid. He laughed and proceeded to show me how to pill a cat. By the time it was over, the vet had Susie in a towel, his assistant had her mouth pinched open, and assistant two was squirting her in the face with water to get her to swallow. She did. Then she indignantly coughed up the pill and glared at the bleeding trio daring them to try again. He gave me liquid medicine.
