    I think I may have posted this before, but someone has asked me to put it up again (no rude responses for that latter statement, thank you):



    1. Pick cat up and cradle it in the crook of your left arm as if holding a baby. Position right forefinger and thumb on either side of cat’s mouth and gently apply pressure to cheeks while holding pill in right hand. As cat opens mouth pop pill into mouth. Allow cat to close mouth and swallow

    2. Retrieve pill from floor and cat from behind sofa. Cradle cat in left arm and repeat process

    3 Retrieve cat from bedroom and throw soggy pill away

    4. Take new pill from foil wrap, cradle cat in left arm holding rear paws tightly with left hand. Force jaws open and push pill to back of mouth with right forefinger. Hold mouth shut for a count of ten

    5. Retrieve pill from goldfish bowl and cat from top of wardrobe. Call spouse from garden

    6. Kneel on floor with cat wedged firmly between knees, hold front and rear paws. Ignore low growls emitted by cat. Get spouse to hold head firmly with one hand while forcing wooden ruler into mouth. Drop pill down ruler and rub cat’s throat vigorously

    7. Retrieve cat from curtain rail, get another pill from foil wrap. Make note to buy new ruler and repair curtains. Carefully sweep shattered figurines and vases from hearth and set to one side for gluing later

    8. Wrap cat in large towel and get spouse to lie on cat with head just visible from below armpit. Put pill in end of drinking straw, force mouth open with pencil and blow down drinking straw

    9. Check label to make sure pill not harmful to humans, drink 1 beer to take taste away. Apply band aid to spouse’s forearm and remove blood from carpet with cold water and soap

    10. Retrieve cat from neighbour’s shed. Get another pill. Open another beer. Place cat in cupboard and close door onto neck to leave head showing. Force mouth open with dessert spoon. Flick pill down throat with rubber band

    11. Fetch screwdriver from garage and put cupboard door back on hinges. Drink beer. Fetch bottle of scotch. Pour shot, drink. Apply cold compress to cheek and check records for date of last tetanus jab. Apply whisky compress to cheek to disinfect. Toss back another shot. Throw tee-shirt away and fetch new one from bedroom

    12. Ring fire brigade to retrieve the fucking cat from tree across the road. Apologise to neighbour who crashed into fence while swerving to avoid cat. Take last pill from foil wrap

    13. Tie the little bastard’s front paws to rear paws with garden twine and bind tightly to leg of dining table. Find heavy duty pruning gloves from shed. Push pill into mouth followed by large piece of fillet steak. Be rough about it. Hold head vertically and pour 2 pints of water down throat to wash pill down

    14. Consume remainder of scotch. Get spouse to drive you to casualty, sit quietly while doctor stitches
    fingers and forearm and removes pill remnants from right eye. Call in on furniture shop on way home to order new table

    15. Arrange for RSPCA to collect mutant cat from hell and ring local pet shop to see if they have any hamsters

    Dogs are more people pleasers. Thank God I'm not a cat person! My doggie takes her pills easily, as long as wrapped in bacon. :)

    Thanks Oxi, but I can't claim sole credit for that one. Written by a chum several years ago.

    This would be funny, if I hadn't actually learned it the hard way. :D
