Mancat Monday

No pikshers, I'z in hiding...da vet decided dat maybe another week of dat icky medisin would help more so...mom is heading out to buy some of dem gelatin capsules cuz she's tired of fighting wif me to take da pill. Yesserday she washed he hands, buttered da pill, chased me down and shoved it down my throat as usaual. Den she noticed dat she had butter on her thumb and decided to lick it off...hah, a little bit of dat pill had come off in da butter! She started gagging and making horribul noises. She told dad she could unnerstand why I din't want to take dat stoopid pill. I TOLD HER DEY WAS AWFUL! And all dis time daddy, who is not funny, kept telling me to pull up my big girl panties and take it like a man.

Mom here. Thank you all for the suggestions. We have pill pockets, but, Speedy is a gentleman and chews everything before swallowing. The problem with that is this medicine tastes really awful and if he so much as gets a little on his tongue he drools and foams! I got some chicken flavored gel caps (who knew they came in flavors!) from the local health food store and the problem has been magically solved. Except that I had to go back and get extras because his sisters seem to think that he's getting treats and they want theirs too!

Medicines are yucky, but you gotta take dem to feels better. Cal would only take his pill in pill pockets.

Brian said...

Just remember, it is to help you feel all better...not the chasing part, the taking part!

The Island Cats said...

Speedy dude, I sympathize with you. Unless Mom gets my appetite stimulant right down the middle of my throat the first time, I start foaming & drooling too. They're ICKY!!!

We think that should be a new rule. The Beans have to taste our medicine to see how icky it is before forcing us to take it.

So glad those gel caps did the trick! Speedy, we hope you feel better soon. :)

pill pockets and gel caps? wow we don't have anything like that where we live.. all pills have to be stuffed into little meatballs made from soft food or stuffed straight down angry kitty throats...

Are those pills purple or blue by any chance? Mom's cat from before had to take a pill dat made him foam at da mouf and Mom made da vet give dem another kind. Other pills did not cause dat problem. It's da stuff on da outside of da pill dat makes dem foam at da mouf. Dare are more den one kinds of pills for fings. Good luck.

Oral liquids are the only way to go. Sad voice of experience...

It's really hell on earth to give a cat a pill ! Thank you for Rosie, she is better, she has eaten a little and I am full of hope. It must have been something with the stomac, she also has gotten a shot for that. It will take some time until she is really well again.

Furkidsmom said...

Mom says liquids work best for her too.


Tamir wanted to thank you for stopping by on his birthday. You helped make his day extra special!

Maximus Spittimus requests that I advise you that I give pills as follows.

1) Finger down throat - mainly successful

2) Wrap in food - they eat without noticing.

Best Regards

Well at least your mom know why you hate the medicine so much. And now you know that your mom loves your bunches and has to give you the medicine so you can get better. So from now on things will go better as far as you taking your medicine.
See you at the Super Bowl game at my place tomorrow! Hope your team that you are rooting for wins.

Oh, I hope you get better soon!
