The above video was taken in March, 2020, just before Sweetie became an inside cat.
Her coughing/sneezing fits made me anxious; she had them often.
The vet gave her antibiotics with her dental work in April, 2020, and she stopped having these attacks.
For awhile...then, they came back again.
Imagine being asleep, when the kitty on your chest starts that!
Sweetie went to the veterinarian again, and was diagnosed with having a bacteria called mycoplasma.
It's difficult to get rid of, and it take antibiotics.
But I am the WORST cat piller of ALL TIME!
I wrestled Sweetie, I pinned her down, I popped that capsule in her mouth...and she spat it out.
Two, three, four times this happened, until the capsule was just a bit of mush.
Sweetie went off to nap.
The Hubby patted me on the back.
After awhile, I called the vet's office, and explained that I needed more capsules, because I was going to ruin a few!
They offered me a private cat pilling class, and I jumped at the chance.
We gently practised on two office cats, and one large cat-shaped doorstop.
The nice folks showed me how to use my hands, how to burrito a kitty with a big towel, and then to use a pill shooter.
I even took pictures of my own hands, to use as reference!
Tomorrow, Sweetie is getting her meds...no ifs, ands, or buts!
She doesn't take any prisoners!
