    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.
    4) Take new pill from foil wrap, cradle cat in left arm, holding rear
    paws tightly with left hand. Force jaws open and push pill to back of mouth with right forefinger. Hold mouth shut for a count of ten.
    5) Retrieve pill from goldfish bowl and cat from top of wardrobe. Call spouse from garden.
    6) Kneel on floor with cat wedged firmly between knees, hold front and rear paws. Ignore low growls emitted by cat. Get spouse to hold head firmly with one hand while forcing wooden ruler into mouth. Drop pill down ruler and rub cat's throat vigorously.
    7) Retrieve cat from curtain rail, get another pill from foil wrap.
    Make note to buy new ruler and repair curtains. Carefully sweep shattered figurines and vases from hearth and set to one side for gluing later.
    8) Wrap cat in large towel and get spouse to lie on cat with head just visible from below armpit. Put pill inside end of drinking straw, force mouth open with pencil and blow down drinking straw.
    9) Check label to make sure pill not harmful to humans, drink 1 beer to take taste away. Apply Band-Aid to spouse's forearm and remove blood from carpet with cold water and soap.
    10) Retrieve cat from neighbor's shed. Get another pill. Open another beer. Place cat in cupboard, and close door onto neck, to leave head showing. Force mouth open with dessert spoon. Flick pill down throat with elastic band.
    11) Fetch screwdriver from garage and put cupboard door back on hinges. Drink beer. Fetch bottle of scotch. Pour shot, drink. apply cold compress to cheek and check records for date of last tetanus shot. Apply whiskey compress to cheek to disinfect. Toss back another shot. Throw Tee shirt away and fetch new one from bedroom.
    12) Call fire brigade to retrieve the f------ cat from tree across
    the road. Apologize to neighbor who crashed into fence while swerving to avoid cat. Take last pill from foil-wrap.
    13) Tie the little b**tard's front paws to rear paws with garden twine and bind tightly to leg of dining table, find heavy duty pruning gloves from shed. Push pill into mouth followed by large piece of steak filet. Be rough about it. Hold head vertically and pour 2 pints of water down throat to wash pill down.
    14) Consume remainder of Scotch. Get spouse to drive you to the
    emergency room, sit quietly while doctor stitches fingers and forearm and remove pill remnants from right eye. Call furniture shop on way home to order new table.
    15) Arrange for RSPCA to collect "mutant cat from hell" and call local pet shop to see if they have any hamsters.

    Only cat ownees can truly relate to that. And we laugh because it's funny, and we laugh because it's TRUE.

    Halfway through the scotch, I was waiting to hear that the pill just became a suppository!

    Lol. Catch the cat, wrap it in a towel with the head showering force the mouth open, place the pill in the throat close mouth.

    Then I’m do the towel and run. Works for me.

    Have 1 cat left. After this guy passes in a few years I’ll not be replacing him. He’s 11 this year. Orange cat. Somewhat a decent cat. Found him in a box in a shopping cart at Walmart. Was walking out to my car and heard a meow. Brought him home. Always wanted an orange cat!

    I hate cats. Correction: I HATE CATS! Correction #2: I ABSOLUTELY HATE ALL CATS!

    My preferred method for giving a cat a pill is from about 30 yards away using my AR-10 .308 loaded with hollow points. Easy Peasy!

    Did I mention that I hate cats?

    When a person keeps animal feed in a barn...one learns the value of a good barn cat.

    Personally I hire it done. I do not want the cat to know I have had anything to do with the process and then find out what will happen if I fall asleep. The major problem is finding a new person to do it every time.

    I don’t mind other peoples cats, mostly. No way in hell I’d want one. Unless it was 100% outdoor cat, that just stopped by to say hello every 4-5 weeks... I could tolerate that. Maybe.

    Man this was funny but I've got to say.......My wife has always had cats and she just don't have that much trouble giving them pills. Sometimes it's a little more challenging but they do seem to trust her.

    That is great, visual and mostly true. Cats are hard to hold and very strong. I still like them though.

    My first cat was impossible to give pills to. I tried, my parents tried the vet tried. Finally gave up, gave the little princess several shots and called it done.
