Dear Pill Guys,
I’m on to you… and that Dr. VET too. Last week I was carted off to Dr VET for no apparent reason. Sure I wasn’t feeling my best, but there was no need for ALL of that. That crackpot VET took samples of things that no self-respecting human or cat should ever want... but I digress.
Dr VET suggested I needed to take a pill twice a day, for forever. I wonder who makes money when a poor kitty is forced to endure daily pill taking? I think we all know the answer is the Pill Guys who make said pills.
I did want to take this moment to thank you for making your pill so obvious that it couldn’t be missed, fluorescent pink was a master stroke. I avoided that pill in any food prep and sharpened my claws at the ready if my family made one false move towards me. I think my message was clear. Lucky for them they stopped trying to force that pill down my throat or hide it in my food. Instead “Her Cheapness” a.k.a Mom bought me delightful new treats to make it up to me.
Here is where my real issue comes in, even without taking your pills I am feeling much better. So in the future, when you try and dupe humans into giving poor innocent kitties a useless pill, perhaps you can make it easier on everyone by doing the following:
- Make the pills brown or tan, I might not have even noticed it lurking in my Fancy Pate.
- If you are going to coat the pill to make it more palatable (as if) I suggest tuna or chick-hen would be more acceptable than Bubble Gum (what is that anyway – gross)
- Better yet, maybe you could make your pill come in a tasty and delicious treat? Hey… wait a minute… you don’t think… Nah!

Hmmm, something seems to be afoot. Do you know where those treats come from?ReplyDelete
Treats are treats, aren't they? I have a sneaky suspicion something is going on here.ReplyDelete
I think the pill guys need to employ taste testers to be sure the pills taste good.ReplyDelete
Of course you couldn't pay me enough to do that job.
Umm, the treats - I would be suspicious about them. However, if you feel better, then what the heck!ReplyDelete
Hmmm mum says we have not had to takle any pill taking yet. Good luck with them, and maybes you should write to the company that makes them with your suggestions.ReplyDelete
Mouse flavoured pills. Just sayin'.ReplyDelete
We hope the scientists hoo make the pills read your post 'cos yoo make a lot of sense. Fresh Ham flavour would be good ~ just sayin'.ReplyDelete
We think the Pill Guys could learn a few things from the Pill Giver... ;)ReplyDelete
Fin, those are some really good tips for the Pill Guys...they should employ you!!ReplyDelete
Glad you're feeling better! ;-)
So glad to hear you are feeling better, Fin! Really, who are those pill guys foolin'?ReplyDelete
We're glad you're exposing this conspiracy by The Pill Guys in trying to make unsuspecting kitties take their pills!ReplyDelete
We're glad your Mom smartened up and got you treats instead of pills! It's great that you're feeling better...how's the sass-o-meter?
What lucky Kitty! TO have these wonderful treats! Good thing your mom is on your side!ReplyDelete
Peoples who make cat pills must be stupid. The peoples who make dog pills are much smarter. Their pills actually smell and we suppose taste good the way Fenris begs for them. We tried to taste them but Mommy wouldn't let us. ~S,S,& CReplyDelete
You mean that stuff Mommy gives me in the morning is MEDICINE? I thought it was treats ~Fenris
Hmmmm, it sound suspicious to me. I'd check out those treats VERY carefully.....ReplyDelete
You are very smart, Fin! Don't let those people fool ya!ReplyDelete
Yep, I think you are on to something Finny!ReplyDelete
But...it's important for you to get all better Fin! Pills are nasty but sometimes a cat has to do what she has to do!ReplyDelete
Well said, Fin!!! You show them!!!ReplyDelete
I think you should take your soap box to Washington. Start a new movement, heck LEAD the movement!!
I'll be your campaign manager and handle all the PR aspects. These Pill-Popping-Piranhas MUST BE STOPPED.
(Glogirly's a little scared)
I think cats will never get used to being forced to swallow a pill...though who knows. When I first started brushing my cats teeth, they responded as if I was attempting to destroy them from the inside out, but now, after months of sporadic brushing, they only slightly act that way, and sometimes they actually just tolerate it and don't hate us for the rest of the day!ReplyDelete
I think the pill-taking will get easier! Stay strong!!
As long as it tastes delicious, it couldn't POSSIBLY have a pill inside.ReplyDelete
PILLS?!? YUCK! We don't blame you for putting your paw down!ReplyDelete
I am glad you like your new treats and are feeling better!ReplyDelete

They can't fool you can they Fin. We can't understand why Beans would want to give us pills when just giving extra treats makes us feel better anyway.ReplyDelete
Mewmie was gone and got behind on keeping up with furrends blogs, so we just found out you are Hyper-T...yep, pretty common in ahem, older kitties. But if you can take the meds (some cats get rashes on their face and some get nauseous) then be a good kitty and eat your Pill Pockets, ok.ReplyDelete
Your vet probably told you too, that sometimes the kidney function can worsen once treatment is started, so be a good kitty and let the VET get blood once in a while, too...ok.
Here's some good links on info on hyperthyroidism, in case you hadn't found these sites yet
Excellent work on setting them straight about the pills. . . . humans! They can be so . . . clueless at times. Myself-I do not like pills either. Lets just say I know how to 'make use' of my fangs as needed-har har!
