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. I tried wrapping Spikey’s pills in anything he loves but he always figured out that there was a pill inside. So now I have his vet
    give him the liquid form of his medicine. I use a syringe and while my husband holds him, while holding his hands, I open his mouth and squirt the liquid into his mouth. He is 18 years old; I have had him for 17 of those years. He is just a wonderful cat, like everyone else’s cat. I can’t imagine life without him. If you have someone to help you this may work. I hope so for Mango’s sake.

    1. There is a really simple answer I discovered years ago. They are called PET PILL GIVER. It is a 10” stick with a split nipple on one end to hold the pill and a little plunger tab on the other. Just load the pill I. The split end, have someone hold your cat or dog, gently squeeze on their cheek at the very back of their teeth, which makes them open their mouth. Put the pill giver far back in their mouth and hit the plunger tab, and the pill is gone. Works every time. So. I have better than trying to push a pill with your finger, as your fingernail can easily hurt the animal! I order them 10 at a time and give them to friends with pets.

  2. Did the vet do a full blood work on Felix? I know they’re costly but can usually show some problem. My male cat had urinary blockage from eating dry food. Vet said old advice about giving them dry food only is not true any longer. Soft food only.
    Also try a different cat litter. Sometimes cats start not liking the existing litter. Go figure…….cats are confusing critters at times.

  3. You might try Greenees Pill Pockets for giving the meds. My cat Maui likes them, there’s different ones. I use them for keeping her teeth clean😁😺

  4. Grandpa Kitty may have a kidney or urinary tract infection. Get a second opinion and don’t blame the poor cat, especially since he’s a senior. He may have bladder issues or maybe he’s getting a little dementia period yes, cats get senile and dementia also

  5. Hi Steph, I hope the likable treat works, that’s what I use to get my kitty to take her pill. I crush it and put some Bisque likable treat on a spoon mix it and she licks it right up. She even has to make sure the back of the spoon is clean.. love her!!!!! GOOD LUCK

  6. Cute cats!! I find the best way to give a cat medicine is with a pill gun/pill popper. Get someone to hold the cat in a towel (covering all legs so that they can’t scratch you) and pop the pill down their mouth using the pill popper. Massage their throat afterwards to help them swallow.

  7. Just look at those beautiful kitties……lazy, hazy days of summer…..I love Meow Monday. Wanted to let you know I tried the Million Dollar Chicken Casserole and it is great. Serve it with a fresh garden or fruit salad and it’s all you need. Thanks for all the great recipes….

  8. Hello,
    I had to give pills to my cat before and I used a pill dispenser I received from the vet. I got the pill and dispenser ready and then I put the cat on the edge of the bed and I stood behind with his rump against my thighs so I could keep him in place when he tried to get away then I used the dispenser as close to the back of his throat that I could get and shot the pill down. He didn’t like it but I was able to get his much needed medicine in safely. It worked and I made sure to give him some extra love afterwards. I feel for you because it’s hard giving a pill to a cat. Good luck 😸

  9. I have 3 cats,also. About the pill situation, grab a tight squeeze of skin behind the neck, pull back and pop pill in towards the back of the throat. Hold mouth closed and massage throat. When you hold them this way, it doesn’t hurt them. She may be mad at you for a little while, but that’s how I do it.

  10. For Mango – Pill pockets, pill popper (with cat wrapped in a towel), and Velveeta… Or else the old fashioned way – shove it down her throat and watch to make sure she doesn’t spit it out. I’d wrap her in a towel for this too.

    For Felix – Comfort may help but I have a cat who pees on beds to mark her territory in my multi-cat home. It’s a tough one. He also may not like sharing a litter box.

  11. Steph, there’s also a product endorsed by Jackson Galaxy aka the cat daddy and his picture is on the product. Its called Tomlyn Pill-Masker paste. 4 oz. Jar. At for $7.29. Its for cats & dogs and is bacon flavored. Check it out! Hope this works. Will be back if I have other ideas. Lisa Giltner

  12. Love your kitties. Have you tried just to stand behind Mango and open her mouth and pop in the pill? I have to give pills to many of my cats throughout the years and this is the only way I can get the pill in. After I get the pill in their mouth, I hold, gently, the mouth closed until they lick. I sometimes gently rub their throat. Hope this suggestion helps.

  13. Back in 2001 I found a pharmacy that would have liquid for any pill that my cat needed. I don’t know if they still do that or not but that made it easier. Oh, and I had an option for flavors too. I had to wrap my cat in a towel to even give the liquid to her & she still wanted to fight but once she tasted it she liked it. But good luck!!
    Think Grandpa wants his own litter box? Cats are a funny mystery!!
