I love this joke.  Being a little serious, I had to give my one cat a pill for a bit, she scares me when I have to do anything to her.  She's not mean, but she HATES having anything done to her except pets.  I wrapped her pill in a little bit of my Mom's Liverwurst lunchmeat.  You know the Braunchweiger meat pate, my cat loved it and devoured the pill!  Just an FYI in case anyone has to give their cat a pill.   ;D

WMH & Pisces, those are so funny!  Y'all had me laughing so much the cat started giving me the evil eye (as I was disturbing his "slumber")!

Thanks for making my day!

  I can see that giving a cat a pill is a real pill!!!
 
       My version of this is trying to give my umbrella cockatoo medication from a syringe....she screams and flaps and bites the end of the syringe off. Just gave up as the antibiotic was just a to help to prevent infection when my moluccan cockatoo poked a hole in her beak with his beak. Her beak did grow out and the hole is gone now.  Sjogren's? Sorry, I thought I was on the pet website!

T, you seem to be well aquainted with Betty.  She was very sweet as a tiny kitten but we soon learned she should have been called Boudicea!!  I dread the 12 weekly worm tablet and it has taken 3 of us with gloves on and a huge bath towel!  She still wins and coughs back the pill, every time

I have a cat that I'm terrified of having to do ANYTHING to her.  She's a really sweet cat, as long as you're doing exactly what SHE wants.  That's how I came up with the liverwurst trick...  She's 12 now, I've had her for 11 years and I have a very healthy respect for her claws and teeth.   ;D  But i do love her.

Now my male cat you could do anything to him...I can even clip his nails and not have to muzzle him, he just sits there and lets me do that.  He's a doll that way.  I can shove stuff down his throat, like liquid or pill medication too.

Sometime I will write a description of how to clean a cat that has jumped in a pan of motor oil, but it is fairly traumatic memory for me and not for the faint of heart to hear. It involved a quart of vegetable oil, two bottles of baby shampoo, two changes of clothes, and several hours, not to mention medical attention afterwards.

I think I would rather give a bat or a pig a bath than a cat.

Oh Genko, me too!  Why WOULD a cat jump in the old oil we had just drained into a basin in the yard?  We came home to this thing on the doorstep and took several moments to recognise it as poor Clemmy.  After the terror and trauma (for us!) of bathing her several times that evening in fairy liquid and applying that green gunky stuff that mechanics use, she seemed nearly clean but smelled disgusting.  Then 2 days later she stopped walking.  She was covered in huge sores, and cost us a fortune in the vets that summer getting her right again. 

A bald cat in a bad mood is not a good thing. :o

You know when you get up from a seat 99% of the time the cat will then jump up and lay down on the warm seat.?
Well I have a cat that when I run bath water I have to close the bathroom door.

I didn't do that once and came in to a kitty wandering around in my bathtub making waves with the water. I got sassed quite a bit for putting him out of there too. LOL He doesn't like baths but likes water. Go figure!  :)
Sorry but I am not to the point where I am sharing baths with my cat. LOL
