Subject: RE: BS: Getting a cat to take pills!
Are you completely sure that the intended cat is getting the intended medicine with the 'pill crushed in food' approach?

Max the black and white cat had arthritis as a result of being run over as a kitten and having his hips broken. The winter before he died, I was thinking he was getting on really well during the cold snaps, whereas in previous cold weather, he'd had difficulty.

Turns out he was slipping through the fence, sneaking into the house over the back and eating the dosed food they were laying out for their big ginger tom who has feline osteoarthritis. Their cat wasn't improving but mine was bouncing around like a kitten!
