I learned the hardway how to actually be successful at that task. In fact...I learned it from HERE!! I shove her in between my legs while I am kneeling on the floor and cross my legs behind me so she can't get out the back. Force the thing in her mouth and hold her mouth closed until she has no CHOICE but to swallow it.

It sucks! I feel SO bad when I had to do this to her, but I love her too much NOT to give it to her!

LOL!! You know what's even HARDER to do?? Put one of those Elizabethan collars on a cat!! After one of my mom's cats got spayed, she was picking at the stitches, so we had to collar her! OMG, I swear I heard noises come out of that cat that would be fit for a horror movie!! LOL

I translated it into french and brought it to work with me. The receptionist was laughing so hard she was hitting the desk and crying! When she was able to compose herself enough, she went into the surgery room and I heard her reading it to the vet as she tried (unsucessfully) to keep from hooting with laughter!! She then photocopied it and brought it over to the other receptionist when she arrived later that day. I've never heard the receptionists laugh so hard!!
