The mother cat we're fostering has 6 week old weaned kittens. She is absolute HORROR. She is in heat, has giardia (from stress), and is absolutely frustrating. We were supposed to give her pills for it, but that is NOT working out. We tried to give them to her in food - she started to pick around it, or not eat it if we crumbled it up. We tried to force feed. But when we tried to hold her down, she got nervous and had diarrhea ALL OVER MY BED. fyi, she didn't get the pill. For a day one wrapped up in turkey worked, but not anymore. We've stopped giving her the pills. She goes about every 3-4 hours and insists on pooing in every litter box. We have 3 in there, 2 especially for the kittens - they can't wade around in her diarrhea! I sleep on a matress in the living room because I couldn't stand being woken up 3 times a night by her splashing litter all over the carpet. She's going to get spayed and go back to the animal shelter on the 27th, because that's what the shelter thinks is best for her. I love cats but I want to toss this one out a third story window. Is there ANY way to give her pills?
