    We have three cats, and recently have had to give them a three day series of worming medicine (the vet refused to make a house call). My husband holds the cat, I force his/her jaws open and squirt the required dosage into the mouth. The cat then gets petted, cooed over, and receives two treats before being let outside. I showed this cartoon to my husband, and he nearly laughed himself silly. Our girls/boy are good kitties, and so far haven't drawn blood.

    Love the cartoon Jane. I remember a few cats coming into the surgery that could leave you feeling like that!!

    I liked this one and it took me back to when I would have to treat our cats. What a production that was!

    Yup - the pill does get ingested, sometimes by myself or my husband! Ha!
