Subject: RE: BS: My fingers hurt
Actually, I once had a cat who needed pills for a problem he was having and giving a cat a pill is the worst! I have a vet who also uses some old time home remedies and said to give him a half teaspoon of gasoline instead.

I admit that I thought the guy was nuts, but it did work, sorta'. It ain't too easy to get a half teaspoon of gasoline down a cat's throat either, but when I did, he liked to tore me to shreds getting away. He blasted around the room about 3 or 4 times, ran up the hallway, up the stairs, back down both, and into the den, leaped on the drapes and ran to the end of the curtain rod. From there he leaped down and ran right to me and instead of biting, licked me for 3 or 4 minutes. Suddenly he stopped and fell on his side on the floor, lying very, very still......... I thought I'd killed the poor thing, but it turns out he'd just run out of gas.
