I adopted 2 two-and-a-half year old cats from the SPCA yesterday. I had to take one to Vet already today because of tapeworms. He also has an upper respiratory infection and ear mites. Since he and his brother have been inseparable, we're treating both of them for the ear mites and tapeworms. But - I have to keep them separate long enough to get their pills into them, and they're just not having anything to do with their pills in the pill pockets! Any ideas on how to get these guys to take these pills? The one who didn't go to the Vet is under the bed and we had to put a collar on him until we could tell them apart and that came off while I was trying to get the pills into him. sigh. My Garfield has been gone a month and I thought this was a good time to get a pair of cats to keep me company, but so far, I think they both hate me. They miss each other, but I can't put them back together just yet.
