Cat Photos to Make You Happy

I don’t know about you, but I need Meow Monday more than ever! There is a lot of difficult news out there right now, and I really enjoy taking a break with some cute cat photos.

All of the cats had a great week. They took lots of naps and relaxed on the porch. We are still working on the best way to give Mango her medicine. If you have any tips on how to give a cat a pill – send them my way!

Boxes are Mack’s second favorite thing in the whole world. The first being a good nap! He loves to chew and tear up the cardboard and make a mess. I’ve never seen anything like it. The boy can tear through a box in no time flat!

Little Mango is doing good. We are still trying to figure out the best way to get her to take her medicine. I crushed it up in mayonnaise (she loves mayonnaise) and she took it twice. The third time she spit it all up. I ordered some lickable cat treats. She goes nuts over them, so hopefully, I can crush up the tiny pill and she won’t notice.

Grandpa Felix had an issue this week. He peed on my office rug. While I was sitting at my desk! OMG! We got it cleaned up quickly with some Anti-Icky Poo Spray. I can not figure out what his deal is. We’ve taken him to the vet twice and nothing is wrong with him. Chicken Legs is still taking him outside for his adventures. I guess he is just a jerk. LOL!

I hope everyone has a PURRFECT week! Be safe!

  1. Grandpa Felix is an older kitty. Could there be a possibility that he is suffering from kitty dementia? You might want to talk to your vet about it. I am happy to hear Mango is doing better also; giving pills to a kitty is never easy. I love all your Meow Monday posts; they brighten my Mondays. Take care.

    1. We recently had to pill a very fussy 14 y/o cat. 1 pill a day. Decided to do it in 2 sessions … crushed 1/2 pill and put it in a tiny bit of her favorite food ( cat tuna) morning and night. Once she ate her tuna with pill, I gave her more wet food.
      We didn’t give her access to wet food in between, just her dry food. Picked up the dry food several hours before the 2nd feeding and repeated the process. It went surprisingly well. And we weren’t stressed. She can be quite stubborn and I usually stress over it. Lol
      It went well for the entire week of meds
      Hope it works for you too! Cat Mom and Nellie ps now we’re back to normal and she’s well.

  2. Steph, have you tried Greenies Feline soft cat Pill treats? They are pliable and you can use as much or as little of the treat you need. Some vets offices sell them and Amazon has them. Also buy some baby ground up chicken food. Like Gerber. Make sure there’s no onions or other food in it. Then buy a pill crusher at a drug store or online. Then first sees if Mango will eat some baby food to see if she likes it then mix a tiny amount with the crushed pill. Also try hiding it in a piece of Turkey or All Beef hot dog. Maybe even a piece of mild cheddar cheese that’s been broken off a block of cheddar cheese. I will be back for more tips. Lisa Giltner

  3. I love your cat Monday’s. Keep them coming. They start my week off with a smile. When you see my email name it is nerak, which is Karen backwards. My Dad called me that all my life. Just a little childhood memory. You all 5 have a wonderful week. I look forward to next Monday. Karen

    1. If you crush the pill mix with a little water to dissolve. Then get a small syringe and shoot just inside her cheek. Or get an irrigation syringe from the vet. They are curved and easy to insert in the corner of the mouth or between her lips. You may need a little more water because these are larger syringes.

  4. When I had to pill my cat, I used Velveeta.
    I would give her a very tiny piece to get her taste buds going and wanting more… then I would sneak in the pill into the next piece. Worked great.

  5. We crushed up our cats pills and mixed them with the spreadable type cream cheese. She loved it! We never had a problem giving her those pills twice a day when they were mixed with just a touch of cream cheese.

  6. I learned how to give my cat pills on YouTube. With practice, both you and the cat will become used to it, but it takes a minute!

  7. I tried wrapping pill in small amount of cheese but but eventually my Levi figured it out and somehow just ate the cheese. Someone suggested a little bit of braunschweiger and it works great! He loves it(so do I 😋) Good luck!

  8. When I’ve had to give my cats pills, I crush the pill in some water or chicken broth and use a syringe to give it to them.

  9. Hi Stephanie:
    Abby, my cat, is given a small pill every 3 days. I use “Kitty Kaviar”, fish flakes, put a pinch in her dish, place the pill on top, rub the pill and the flakes together several times to get the fish smell on the pill. and place the pill back on top of the small pinch of flakes. Then, I say to her, ” eat your pill” everytime I give it to her. Always a success.

  10. I think Greenies makes a pill pocket treat for cats. Our vet gave us a few to administer pills for a sick cat
    They are soft like a treat and have a “pocket” for the meds.Our cat loved them. Hope this helps. Good luck

  11. I’ve given my cats a pill with a bacon paste from chewy it slides right down! Good luck! Some people use pill shooters!
