That is funny about cats. I have tried to give cats pills. It is almost as described above. Cats can spit the pills out even if you manage to get the pill down their throats. I have seldom been successful at it. I did have a bit better luck with medicine in eyedroppers, but even then it has been like bloody warfare.

Never had cats but had dogs. Your right bacon and they'll eat anything. Two problems ever had with dogs expecially Labs and Golden's was the new flea medicine, the little ampule that you cut and put a drop or two behind the collar, they didn't like that at all. But cleaning out the ears OMG that was a nightmare. As soon as they saw a cotton swab they were gone, no treats nothing would induce them to come here, and lay down, uh uh, aint gonna do it. So we left that job for the Vet, he'd give him a shot and viola instant obedient patient. Ears done in about 15 minutes, easy when you know how.
