Excerpted from Dr. Karen Becker's article, "3 Ways to Give Your Cat a Pill Without Being 'Eaten Alive'" at healthypets.mercola.com:
If you’re like the majority of people owned by a cat,
If you’ve never had to do it, you’re probably thinking it’s not a big deal. In fact, it’s the people who’ve attempted this feat in the past that recoil in fear when their kitty’s veterinarian hands them a bottle of pills or a dietary supplement in pill form.
Fortunately, there are a few different techniques for pilling a cat, because every cat is a little different, and what works for one may not work for another.

Winnie is a 2-year-old female Black and Tan Coonhound. She is a bundle of energy--if you are looking for a running partner, she is your girl! She would benefit greatly from a training class as well as continued daily exercise. She seems to get along well with other dogs but she can be forward which may scare some other dogs. Winnie is a sweet, goofy, fun-loving girl looking for her forever home.
Lulu is a 1.5-year-old Domestic Shorthair. She is a lovely little girl. At first she can be a little shy and take a while for her to warm up to you. After she is comfortable she is very sweet and affectionate.
