Post 1187: fugitive…

The endless game of giving Andy his heart medicine began with Andy escaping from me each time I tried to catch him. 

Frustrated, I decided to take a photo of Andy hiding in the dark, feet away from me where I couldn’t move without him scooting off to some inaccessible spot to “cat smirk” about how he avoided his icky medicine once again! I’d call the blog centered on the photo “fugitive…” I decided.

While waiting for my computer to settle in and be ready, Andy stopped by my computer chair! He was within grabbing distance, so I just reached down and captured my little fugitive! 

“Try giving me those sad kitten eyes now, you little rascal! You will be medicated today!”

This is Andy’s main defense: “sad kitten eyes”. Didn’t work!  For those unfamiliar with Andy’s “sad kitten eyes”, here’s an historical photo, back when I had to wrap him in a towel to contain him long enough to give him his medicine:

…wrapped in the white towel! He spots the medicine bottle on the table. This can only mean one thing! (Original caption for this photo – this shows you an Oscar-worthy version of “sad kitten eyes”, as Andy performs them!)

    • It’s a tablet that’s ground and mixed into a chicken-flavored liquid. His main complaint is the cold, I think. It has to be stored in the refrigerator. It takes a moment to give it to him, then he is OK. I squirt just a small amount into his mouth, then, gradually, complete the deed. The whole process takes b=very little time, just a few seconds.

    • Poor Andy! He’s getting better about the medicine. I do make sure it is as pleasant a process as possible, with nose rubs, soft talk about what a good kitty he is, and holding him close like a baby. He’s become used to that, likes it, and that makes the medicine part a little more tolerable. (Well, not too tolerable!)
