I thought of you all day today when I was at the zoo.
I hear that grinding the pill into powder and mixing it in the food can work. Then again, some can smell it a mile away.
Ask me how I know that putting medicated eye gell in a cat's eyes is WAY worse than given them a pill.
What's even worse than that is having to give a pill and THEN the eye gell.
I'm amazed I have any skin left at all.
As mentioned they do make a thing we call a "pill-popper", I think most vets will sell them do you for about $5. They do work pretty well in the fact that it keeps you fingers away from some sharp teeth. How much success you have depends on the cats personality and the skill of the operator.
BTW all-time great write-up about giving a cat a pill.
