How To Give Your Cat A Pill

I found this in an old Ann Landers column a few years ago...and even though I don't own a cat, I always get a good laugh out of it. I always send it to cat-owner friends of mine when I find out that their cats need to take medicine. Hope you all enjoy reading it as much as I did.. and as a warning, if you have the same reaction as me, do not attempt to eat or drink anything while reading this! --Christine



(1). Pick cat up and cradle it in the crook of your left arm as though holding a baby. Position right forefinger and thumb on either side of cat’s mouth, and gently apply pressure to his cheeks. When cat opens up, pop pill into mouth. Cat will then close mouth and swallow. (2). Retrieve pill from floor and cat from behind living room sofa. Repeat the process. (3). Retrieve cat from bedroom, and throw soggy pill away. (4). Remove second pill from foil wrap, cradle cat in left arm holding rear paws tightly with left hand. Force jaws open, and push pill to back of throat with forefinger. Hold mouth shut for a count of 10, if you are able. Hold cat’s mouth closed as well. (5). Retrieve pill from goldfish bowl, and cat from top of wardrobe. Call for assistance. (6). Kneel on floor, wedging cat firmly between knees, immobilizing front and rear paws. Ask assistant to hold cat’s head firmly with one hand while forcing wooden ruler into cat’s throat. Flick pill down ruler with forefinger, and rub cat’s throat vigorously. (7). Retrieve cat from living room valance. (8). Carefully sweep shattered figurines from hearth. Set aside for later gluing. Remove third pill from foil wrap. (9). Wrap cat in beach towel, and ask assistant to lie prone on cat with cat’s head visible under assistant’s armpit. Put pill in end of paper tube you’ve made for this purpose. Then, force cat’s mouth open with pencil, and blow. (10). Check label to make sure pill is not lethal to humans. Sip water to take taste away. Apply bandage to assistant’s forearm, and remove blood from carpet with soap and cold water. (11). Retrieve cat from neighbor’s roof. Remove fourth pill from foil. Place cat in cupboard, and close door on cat’s neck and head outside cupboard. Force mouth open with desert spoon. Flick pill down throat with rubber band. (12). Fetch screwdriver from garage, and put cupboard door back on hinges. Apply cold compress to cheek, and check records for date of last tetanus shot. Throw bloodied, ripped T-shirt away, and fetch another from bedroom. (13). Apologize to neighbor who crashed into fence while swerving to avoid cat. (14). Call 911, ask fire department to retrieve cat from eucalyptus tree. (15). Remove remaining pill from foil wrap. (16). Tie cat’s front paws to rear paws with garden twine, and securely tie to leg of dining table. Put on heavy-duty pruning gloves. Force cat’s mouth open with tire iron. Drop pill, previously hidden in one ounce of raw hamburger, into cats mouth. Hold head vertically with nose pointed to ceiling, and pour one half pint of water down cat’s throat, and two jiggers of whiskey down your own. (17). Ask assistant to drive you to emergency room. Sit quietly while doctor administers anesthetic, stitches fingers, forearm, and removes pill remnants from eye. (18). Drop off cat, along with generous donation, at animal shelter. Adopt a goldfish.

Date: 11/7/2003 5:13:00 PM  From Authorid: 53284    We had one cat that was so hard to give a pill to that it took three of us. First we had to wrap him in a blanket. One person would hold him, while he was bound securily in the blanket. The second person would squeeze on either side of his mouth until his mouth opened. The third person would have to pop the pill in his mouth and then push it to the back of his throat with the eraser side of a pencil. All this was being done while the 15 pound bundle of energy was trying to fight his way free from the blanket. When we were successful we would high five each other, but then we would realize that he needed another pill in 12 hours.
