Instructions for giving your cat a pill:

1. Pick cat up and cradle it in the crook of your left arm as if holding a baby. Position right forefinger and thumb on either side of cat's mouth and gently apply pressure to cheeks while holding pill in right hand. As cat opens mouth, pop pill into mouth. Allow cat to close mouth and swallow.

2. Retrieve pill from floor and cat from behind sofa. Cradle cat in left arm and repeat process.

3. Retrieve cat from bedroom, and throw soggy pill away. Take new pill from foil wrap, cradle cat in left arm holding rear paws tightly with lef hand. Force jaws open and push pill to back of mouth with right forefinger. Hold mouth shut for a count of 10.

4. Retrieve pill from goldfish bowl and cat from top of wardrobe. Call spouse from garden.

5. Kneel on floor with cat wedged firmly between knees, holding front and rear paws. Ignore low growls emitted by cat. Get spouse to hold cat's head firmly with one hand while forcing wooden ruler into mouth. Drop pill down ruler and rub cat's throat vigorously.

6. Retrieve cat from curtain rail, get another pill from foil wrap. Make note to buy new ruler and repair curtains. Carefully sweep shattered figurines from hearth and set to one side for gluing later.

7. Wrap cat in large towel and get spouse to lie on cat with its head just visible from below spouse's armpit. Put pill in end of drinking straw, force cat's mouth open with pencil and blow down drinking straw.

  1. Since I am now doing 3 meds, 4 times a day I know you'll forgive me for not reading that... because I'm living the nightmare. srsly.

    Big hugs xoxo

  2. Lmao hilarious :-)

    Have a brilliant week

  3. i was just thinking of barb while i read this and oh, btw, it's all true!

    hugs, bee

  4. Calling a vet is no thrill. Yet cat is interestingly a challenge.
    Nice laugh on a Sunday evening!

  5. Now that was hysterical. I have four cats on pills and don't have that much trouble, thank heavens. I did have a cat that was very much like the one in that very funny story. It can be such a hard thing to do to give these darn cats a pill. Thanks Sandee, I needed that laugh this morning. Take care.

  6. Woof! Woof! Happy SILLY Sunday! Lots of Golden Woofs, Sugar

  7. Poor Sandee if this is your cat needing the pills. :) LOL!

    You might try the 15-second way I do my dogs:

    1. Put a nice gob of Peanut Butter on one finger
    (two fingers on different hands if doing two dogs);
    2. Dabble the pill into the PB;
    3. Offer to dog(s); and
    4. Pill(s) is/are down doggy throat(s)!

  8. Mo and I are hurting from laughing so much at this! Been there, done it and ruined our T Shirts!

    We ended up have the veterinary nurse visit our home daily for weeks to give Livvie her tablets!

    How come they can they do it in a few seconds?

  9. it's been a while since I've had a cat but that sounds about right :)

  10. oh gotta love them still!! :)
    Happy Sunday!

  11. Love this. Funny thing, someone sent me something very similar yesterday for while I am away. :)
    Thanks for the laughs, for the linky and for linking up :)

  12. I immediately thought of Barb when I read this. Poor Whitey is getting a feeding tube as I type, poor boy. Sigh.

    Have an awesome Monday. Big hugs, honey...

  13. This one was brilliantly hilarious Sandee. Do I assume this is not a joke but a real life experience that you & hubby have been through???
