Re: OT:Pilling Cats

From: Chris Darlington <chris.darlington@sympatico.ca>

Try this , cat lovers:  crush a pill up in a spoon and mix in double the
amount of butter or cream cheese.  Smear the mixture around the cats
mouth area if you can't get a dry pill in .  If you have problems doing
this , smear the mixture onto the cats paw and he or she will surely
lick it off.  Cats DON'T like to be dirty .  Both of our beasts have
nervous disorders and need to be sedated before going to the vet.

Good luck
Chris Darlington
