Andy displays his stalking skills in taking over this box.
The late Dougy makes a cameo appearance here, watching his brother, Andy, play with a new toy.
Andy just about won yesterday’s battle to medicate the cat. When he saw me pick up the walking stick, he ran into the guest bedroom, where he totally lost me. I had my usual temper tantrum about that, and sat down on the sofa to contemplate where, if not the usual place, could Andy be hiding. He had to be in the room. Where?
Then I had a moment of clarity: in the dark space by the closet! Yes, hiding in dark, a black cat is invisible. And easily trapped! Poor Andy!
I picked him up and took him over to the sofa, where I pet him to calm him down and to get him to put his claws away. (I have lots of wounds from this medicating process….) Then I gave him his eye drops.
Whew! Done for the next 12 hours. Next, both medications have to be administered.
The videos are terrific, with hunter Andy jumping and cavorting, while
dear Dougy just there, barely moving his ear. Precious!
Medicating a kittie is always a challenge, isn’t it?
Yes, it is! Those were fun videos for me, too!
I can relate. Monkey turns into a Tiger when it comes to medication or the vet for that matter.
Andy is passive till it’s done, then it’s paws and claws the hell out of there!
Yep, I get biting and growling also
He hasn’t been vocal nor “bitey” but scratching when he hurries away after medication has been a problem for me.
Fun videos, I enjoyed watching them! Glad this round of medicating went well!
All go today.
It happens and I am grateful!
Black cat in dark shadows! Old Andy figured out a good strategy! 🙂
It actually was pretty smart the first time, but now it’s the first place I look. Fortunately, he still hides in the same place even though he’s a sitting duck.
Oh God, I really do feel your pain. Medicating an uncooperative cat is awful. I have to launch a stealth attack on Catorze whilst he sleeps, which feels mean but it’s the best/only way.
Any means is OK if the cat gets medicated in the end!
well done….. we hope all wounds will heal up quickly…..and they become cat-toos you can wear as medals ;O)
Mostly they do. Maybe I should take a photo of my ugly legs as proof I own a cat…! LOL!
Wow, like I said, Doug, you are an awesome kitty dad. 🐈
