Medicating cats is 10x the work that medicating dogs is.

@littlek,
That's news to me. But then, neither I nor any of the people closest to me own cats. In what way do they cause more work?

Chihuahuas ain't no dogs.

I've never had a skerrick of trouble with a cat in my entire life (I have medicated 11 of them plus those of friends) except Miranda.

@Thomas,
They're wily.

Waaaay wilier than dogs.

(Plus those claws, eek.)

@sozobe,
Dogs have sharp teeth and their nails aren't silky finger puppets.

@tsarstepan,
Technique, wiliness and an ability to swaddle - got those three things and you can medicate any cat.

No greed...hence no hiding in food.

The End.


PS: Never swaddled. Don't work.

@dlowan,
swaddling works

<for cats that need to be swaddled>

just like dogs - you've got to have a repertoire of techniques for cats

About 60 years ago, I had some bunny-rabbits.

I've medicated three cats. Miranda the tyrant was easy in the meds department. Mikey the monster cat didn't put up much of a fight. But Patty the sweet, gentle, tiny feline was hell. I had to put on gloves and long sleeves. I still usually ended up bloody anyway. Cats have weapons.

We do.

We don't have a whole passel of diseases you guys and Europe etc have...eg rabies, foot and mouth, countless bugs and crop eating critters. Animals coming into or returning to the country have to stay in quarantine for quite a long time.
California used to have its own customs inspection stations, along its border,
principally for fruit.

@ossobuco,
Do I have to explain this. Roger and I are dry with each other for good reasons, re our opinions. End of comment. Except that we are pals.

@Roberta,
I've usually been able to get the dropper in long enough for the meds to go down their little gullets, but when that doesn't work, I put it on their paws--they can't stand it and automatically start to lick their paws.

@OmSigDAVID,
Still true the last time I cleared their border checks. Maybe 3 1/2 years ago.
