This morning, Deva the wondercat did a little workout …. hopping between the front and back doors. Here are some pics of the little munchkin trying to convince me that going out would be a good idea..
For anyone else who may encounter major hassles with giving meds to your cat, this has been the only way I can do it reasonably stress free. Since Deva refuses any food with a crushed up pill in it (yes, she is a bit of a Diva… as well as being a Deva), this means that all the tips that I have found on the net or that others have shared, simply do not work with this fusspot!! Since we have had two days of drinking lots of water, I decided to mix up a much smaller batch of meds – antibiotic pill, liquid pain relief into a paste, then add the magic ingredient – a blob of nutrigel. Now she still wont take it because she can smell the meds, but with a tiny amount I can rub it on her gums in two lots – minimising the stress and getting those important meds into her…
Tomorrow morning is a check-up with the Vet. All in all, this little furball is doing great – she has hopped around pretty much the whole house and can get on and off chairs, and my bed (with a little step to help on the way down).
Each night there is a little bit of crying and it seems to be when the meds may be wearing off and it is hard to get comfy.
Thanks to everyone for the kind posts – it is a wonderful support xx
Nite from the triclaw down under 🙂
