Hi ya'll. I just got back from the vet's office and Patch just has a slight upper-respiratory infection and he'll be fine in a few days. What I was hoping was that if someone could tell me is how to give him his pills to make it easier on both of us. I've never given a cat pills before. My dog used to take pills, but he would just lick them out of my hand. Somehow, I don't think Patch is going to do that. The vet told me to crush up the pills and put them in something sweet. I was wondering if honey would work, or if that's something that would make him sick. He also told me to put a bit of butter on the pill and open Patch's mouth and put the pill down his throat with my finger. I don't really like the thought of doing that for fear of choking him. So, if anyone out there has any suggestions on making this process easier on the two of us, I'd really appreciate it. Thanks to all of you who gave me great advice and were concerned for Patch. We both appreciate it.
