1. Pick up the cat 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 under chair. Cradle cat in left arm and repeat process.

3. Retrieve cat from bedroom and throw soggy pill away.

4. Take a 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 in from garden.

6. Kneel on floor with cat wedged firmly between the 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 woo den 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 a note to buy a new ruler and repair curtains. Carefully sweep shattered figurines from hearth and set aside for gluing later.

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

9. Check label to make sure that pill is not harmful to humans. Drink glass of water 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. Place cat in cupboard and close door onto neck to leave head showing. Force mouth open with spoon, flick pill down throat with elastic band.

11. Fetch screwdriver from garage and put door back on hinges. Apply cold compress to cheek and check records for last tetanus shot. Throw t-shirt a way and fetch new one from bedroom.

12. Call the fire department to retrieve 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 cat's front paws to rear paws with garden twine and bind tightly to leg of dining room table. Find heavy duty pruning gloves from garage. Force cat's mouth open with small trowel. Push pill into mouth followed by large piece of fillet steak. Hold head vertically and pour 1/2 pint of water down throat to wash pill down.

14. Get spouse to drive you to emergency room. Sit quietly while doctor stitches finger and forearm and removes pill remnants from right eye. Stop by furniture store on the way home to order a new table.

15. Arrange for vet to make house call.

Been there done most of that too! One step, actually two, be sure to spit on cat's nose and blow into face. Mr. Phussy comes up with new no way am I going to eat that each time. If he would keep from getting bites on his rear from possums, all would be solved.

We ordered this device pictured below. Thought you might get a laugh at it.

But still, the BIG Question is: Does it work?

It has not worked for pill taking, but it is very handy for washing the cat or small dog. Just watch out for paws coming out the side holes.

Donna, . That is hilarious !!
I was miffed when my vet charged me $3 for a "Pill Popper", for my cat's prescription, as I had given dogs pills, thousands of times.... But I am so glad that I have it. I use it for any animal that needs a pill now, wouldn't be without it.

Dogs are easy! Cheap vienna sauges from the 99 cent store.. stuff one in, they inhale it!

I smoosh cat pills into power and put it in milk. They usually go for it. Only had one cat that didn't.

I would get a cat again if I had one of those cages!

I'm guessing that the best laugh would be the instructions for how you persuade the cat to get into that cage the second time. Donna could write another list of ways to do it, methinks.....
