I’ll be wishing this week passes quickly for you!
It’s quite satisfying to see someone with arrogance knocked down a peg or two! Thank goodness I’ve never had to pill Johnny (and he’s the only cat I’ve ever had!). More than once, vets have given up on looking in his mouth because he completely refuses to let them open it. And he loves it there! Likes talking to new people and getting petted and lets them look him all over. He explores the room and isn’t shy at all. But if he’s not yawning, you’re not going to see inside his mouth!Hurrah for Theo feeling better!
In my early teens I had a Siamese cat who was nigh on impossible to pill. On one vet visit the patronising and supercilious male vet prescribed AB tablets and I explained how tricky she was and asked him to show me how to get them into her. "It's extremely simple", he said "you hold the cat like this and the tablet so then you just open the cat's mouth and..." There was a split second of violent activity, then the pill was in one corner, the cat in another and the rather less supercilious vet was sucking a long gash on his thumb. Back to the burrito after that.
