Mulder thank you. :D

The vet told me to give her the half pill after a meal, so I figure I will crush it up into her wet food. She INHALES that spoonfull of food so quickly, hopefully she won't even notice. lol.

At first I was trying to think how to get a pill in a cat. She's laid back, but I couldn't imagine her taking a pill without incident. haha. So hopefully the wetfood trick will work. It did NOT work with my other cat Batman, when he had worm pills. But he doesn't like the wetfood as much as the other two. He much prefers pounce treats.

I hope the wet food works, too. Our elderly cat can sense and taste anything I put in that's not cat food. It's crazy.

I'm glad she's doing better. It's hard when our furry babies get sick and can't tell us what hurts.

Thanks Jan, I hope so too. She inhales it so quickly so she can move on and steal the other two cats share of food, so maybe she won't notice. Maybe.


I worry about her a lot, because sometimes I am not so sure she would make it known if she WAS hurting. She is just so happy all the time. She kept running and jumping yesterday even with her limping, so maybe she didn't feel any pain... but you never know, unless you speak cat.

Oh Krystal I'm so glad she's okay. It sounds like she means a lot to your DH and you. I know how upset I would be if anything was wrong with our Lucy! I'll keep sending Rebel good thoughts.

ETA: Have you tried pill pockets? They're amazing for giving pills to your animals. Your vet should have them, or maybe even the pet food store. It's just a soft treat with a hole in it and you can mush it around the pill. They never even know it's coming!

Thank you, I haven't tried them but I was looking at them online. We can only get them at Petsmart here and it's REALLY far away. Someone on another forum suggested using regular moist treats (like pounce) and squishing it into that. Since it is only half of a baby aspirin I will probably do that, if she refuses to eat it mashed in her wet food.

She tends to eat that as fast as possible, because she is bound and determined to kick the boys from their bowls and eat theirs, (she's the total alpha of two very, very big boy cats, one with claws even) so I don't think she will notice. At least I hope not. She doesn't care for pounce treats as much, she mostly just takes them from Batman and chews them to pieces without eating them.

She just likes to take things from her brothers haha. Boots doesn't care, and Batty never seems to either, but now that I think of it, that may explain why he picks on her. haha.
