How to tablet a Cat

For most people giving their cat a tablet is a complete circus at best. The cat usually gets the drift that something is awry early on and the struggle that ensues invariably leaves the owner frazzled +/- covered in saliva and the cat wondering how their owner came to be possessed by the devil. Here’s a helpful step by step process that will make tableting episodes less of a palaver and more of an exhibition of feline whispering prowess!

3. Once treat has been consumed pat the kitty some more
4. Hold tablet in right hand in-between thumb and index finger
5. Have someone hold kitty’s body
