I feel like the worst cat mommy right now. I was giving my baby her pill and she almost chocked on it. I was able to help her and she spit it out but that doesn’t change what I did. Right now, I feel as if I don’t even deserve to have her anymore. Has this ever happened to anyone else?

I can’t say I’ve ever choked a cat on a pill, but I worked in a veterinary clinic and saw all sorts of upsetting things and fostered some kittens who had been malnourished since birth… and sometimes no matter how hard you try, bad things happen. And it’s not your fault. 

Luckily, you have a variety of other options that emergency situations do not always have. My cat is an enormous brat, so if I had to give her a pill I would grind it up into powder and put it into some wet kitty food or tuna. I would recommend giving that a try. I know some cats won’t eat that either, though. If all else fails and you don’t feel comfortable giving your cat any more pills by shoving them into her mouth and trying to coax her to eat them, your vet may have other options. I have definitely gotten some horse medications that come in a tube, which is a little easier to force down… and, if it’s an option, giving animals shots is a whole lot easier than it sounds.

Your best bet, for now, is probably finding something that your cat thinks is delicious that you could hide a crushed pill in.

my cat cupcakes! I made these for the person letting me adopt one of his kittens.

For some reason, Tumblr didn’t tell me that I had new messages so I just got your submissions published/queued. Sorrysorrysorry! Love and cats to all of you
