Agree with Kingtonks, I've always managed with a towel tightly wrapped round with legs pinned in, helps with someone else holding the cat. Cat just hates you for a while but it doesn't last long!!!! Sue x

Ha ha will bear that in mind Sue. I have failed so far with the tablets - I will have to get some more from the vets and try again. I was meant to call the vet and tell her if the tablets have done any good!!! Will have to admit I have only got Ginny to take two so far

Sorry Jaybird, I have to tell you about little Sabrina. Unfortunately she picked up a little sniffle at her first show. So i got her checked over by our vet and we decided to cover her with a 5 day course of antibiotic's. Now I love Synulox as it comes in liquid format. But no they have changed at what was prescribed wasn't available in liquid form.
So poor Sabrina had to have half a tablet twice a day. Oh my god she is an Angel. I would say "Tablet time Brinny" and she comes and sits waiting for the tablet which is popped on her mouth and she just swallows it:o)) What a little princess she is.
Sorry, just had to share. One in a million and the loadest purr you have ever heard. Guess she will be stopping;o))
You really all aren't helping with the tales of these angelic cats .... Ginny still has the snuffles and my hands are like cross stitch samplers with all the scratches!!! Thank you so much for sharing these stories
Only joking haha

Thank's Jaybird I'll keep you posted with what information I can get back for you.
A good natural help for respiratory infections is garlic. Not to sure of the dose as I use a dorwest product specially designed for cats. I give it to Rebellion as a natural flea repellant, but it can also ease respiratory problems.
Bare with me and if I get any advice I'll let you know

Ok the first technique I have been shown is called the clothes peg http://www.felinecrf.org/giving_sub-qs_giving_set.htm#clothes_peg_trick this link explains all. Have to say I don't know if it would work with Ginny, especially when you are trying to build her trust rather than destroy it.
Alternatively there is this option which has been sent to me with this comment after I checked in was OK to forward: Yes you are more than welcome to copy and paste my reply where ever you'd like.:) The best of luck with her, she sounds like she's in great loving hands!
Is it crushable? There is a product on the market here in the UK called Thrive.
They are dehydrated chicken, prawn and fish treats. they can be broken up into a powder. They are highly palatable. My suggestion would be to crush the pill up
with these and sprinkle them onto the wet food given. Or even on it's own. My other suggestion would be to mix it with some golden syrup, anchovy paste, pate
or malt paste and smear it on the cats paw or straight in or on the mouth. Be
sure it's smeared thinly down towards the top of the paw other wise it will be flicked off.
Hope this helps. I've had a few cats attached to my head trying to pill them so
I do know what she's going through! :)
If you can't get hold of any of these items to crush the tablet in, please PM me your address and I will pop to the shops and get the treats for you and post it on to you.
