  2. :roflmfao: So true. Speaking of cats, did you see the show Flipping Out when the guy took the cat the get acupuncture?? Too funny.
     
  3. I soo this once in a vet´s office, hilarious!!
     
  4. :roflmfao: So true. When I last had to give my cat pills, I thought that I was doing okay until I found a few of them on the floor in the pantry a week later. She had been spitting them out behind my back!
     
  5. HYSTERICAL... and so true!!!!
     
  6. My elderly Siamese (may he rest in peace) had to be pilled daily for low thyroid. ( for about the last couple of months he lived) He was so old and docile he just laid there and let me put the pill in his mouth. He even made a little swallowing movement back in his throat. I was so proud of him.
    After he died and I was cleaning I found this little stash of tiny white pills where he would hold them in his mouth until I left him alone and then spit them out behind the sofa cushion. He really was a genius....
     

  7. This made me laugh and cry! What a smart boy.
     
  8. Ha!!! That's too funny.

    I am currently giving my cat pills for low thyroid as well. I just stick it in his food and he eats it...or so it seems:p
     

  9. :roflmfao:just when you thought they took the pill!! oh this is too funny!! i'm picturing my maltese doing as he is taking thyroid pills
     
  10. That's funny. Good thing I don't have a cat. The only time I had to give my dog a pill, I hid it in a hot dog and she was thrilled to take the entire prescription.
     
  11. Hysterical and SO true. We finally asked if the pill could be smashed and used a mortar and pestle to grind it up, then mixed in water and used an eye dropper to get it down our cat's throat, my dear Tigris, may she rest in peace.
     
  12. LOL.

    That is way too true. My dog refused to take these TINY pills that I got from the vet to help prevent infection when his paw was injured.

    He would often take them and spit them out later (I followed him).

    I ended up having to wrap the pill in all kinds of meat and food that he loved so that he'd eat it. He's such a gluttonous dog. :nogood: Love him to death though.
     
  13. Lol!!!
    Soo True!:roflmfao::roflmfao:
