Regarding Medicating Cats

Regarding medicating cats (which is much more fun topic than others being kicked about tonight)...

The old gray female kitteh had something going on around her tail, losing hair off her butt and the tail where it attaches. She was miserable.

Milady started applying something to the spot, and giving her medicine orally. Cat wiggled and objected at first, but in a couple of days must've figured out it worked, because she would come jump in Milady's lap at medication time and cooperated quite nicely. Cat got better, BTW.

Animals, domestic and wild, don't always know what we're doing to them, but it's really neat how, when they figure out we're helping, they get it, and cooperate.
