COT: Pill Time!
Au and Target had to take their worm tablet last week. Au is a veteran at this. He sits upright on my lap while I open his mouth and pop in the pill. Our senior kitty swallows, gives me a filthy look, and wanders off. He then doublebacks and demands a treat for being good.
But Target is a different kettle of fish. Our junior kitty wriggles and struggles. He won't take his pill the nice way by sitting up. Instead, I have to turn him upside down on my lap, hold the scruff of his neck, lever open his jaw carefully with one finger, pop in the pill and stroke his throat till he swallows.
Here is a video of Target taking his pill. Isn't he wriggly?
