Many cats are a lot like children. They're lively, playful, and absolutely hate to take medicine. There are several ways to get around this. Sometimes medication can be hidden inside food, but if it's bad-tasting, your cat might simply refuse to eat it. You can ask your veterinarian if a liquid form is available. If so, it can be administered with an eyedropper. If it's absolutely necessary to give your cat a pill, the first thing to do is protect yourself. Wrap your cat in a towel, then slowly pry its mouth open with your fingers. Put the pill on the back of the cat's tongue and stroke its throat. It'll swallow instinctively. In time, your cat may even learn to appreciate this routine, especially the throat-stroking part.
