Re: how to pill a cat was how to bathe a cat was: catcollars was now cat door

Hopefully - your little Mighty Hunter will do what my formerly feral
girl does, gobble down liquid medicine very happily as long as it's
mixed up in Fancy Feast. I have to ask the vet for liquid meds
specifically, but she KNOWS how this cat is and willingly complies. She
calls her mean little tortie back cat. She is mean at the vet's. Yikes.
