Stinky Badness

Perhaps as you can tell from today's headline, it could be a better day for both Ms. C and myself. I thought those pills they tried to shove down my throat were bad? Well, they had nothing on the stinky badness of that so-called fish-flavored liquid stuff they tried to give me next:

Ms. C really feels awful. I mean, just look at me. I really, really, really, really hate that medicine. She feels like she is torturing me when I run around foaming at the mouth because I hate the taste so much.

Ms. C really is feeling frustrated and terrible about it. There is no tricking me by disguising a pill or this liquid in cheese, peanut butter, stinky fish, or anything else because I am very smart. I know when something tastes like poison and I will not touch it. She has wasted pill after pill trying to find the way to trick me, taking the tips of other humans who have had success in tricking their dogs or cats. Nope, it won't work with me.

She tells me that she is very concerned that my condition will worsen, and only wants me to be healthy. I'm still not going to take that stuff.

Oh you poor, poor, POOR little Abby! And perhaps even poorer Ms. C! I do feel for you both. What to do? The frothing effect really is impressive!

Well, I hate to say this but one thing that sometimes happens when medicine won't go down any other way involves very sharp needles. You need to get rid of that little problem, Abby! BE STRONG!

Your Pal,

Bleh! and Double Bleh,Bleh! I foam at the mouth, too, when mom gives me medicine. I wonder if you've tried those pill pockets? Skeezix swears by'em!

Abby, run back over to my blog and see what SAM I AM from The Taylor CatSSSSS did!

Ivy is a pro at the foaming as well. I'm a bit better with the guilt.

Grr, Midnight & Cocoa said...

you poor thing! we sure can see how much you hate that stuff, but aren't they going to end up giving it to you with the stabby needles?

Daisy said...

Yeah, that foaming thing always scares them! Have you tried using a piller? You will have to be held firmly by the scruff while your mom uses the piller to stick the pill farther down your mouth so you cannot spit it up or foam.

Kelly Cat said...

Eeee-yuck! That stuff reminds me of some disgusting meds I got years ago. Hopefully you won't need yours for long. It's definitely stinky no-goodness.

Mickey said...

uh oh, it is time for the "pill gun." my mommy got hers at the VET's office. it looks like a syrenge. the pill goes in a rubber tip and it gets shot down your throat. it doesn't hurt, trust me. i'm a former feral and don't tolerate meds either.
i get wrapped in a towel like a burrito and before i know it, the pilling is all over.

PS feel better sweetie! we'll purr for you

Gandalf & Grayson said...

Excellent job of refusal! Foaming at the mouth was classic, Abby.

The Taylor CatSSSSS said...

Sweetie....you have to take your medicine to get better. Just swallow it quickly. Mommy just puts it down our throats....really quickly and then blows in our faces....that makes us take a breath and swallow. Hope you feel better soon.

DEBRA said...

Abby
I can understand how you feel about the medicine...I refused to take mine and they (those evil hoomans) tried repeatedly to get me to gulp down that foul tasting antibiotics and I wouldn't do it. I fought tooth and claw and ha ha ha I WON! Boy I am glad I convinced them to stop torturing me....

Oh poor T'Abby... Though I must say your impression of a rabid monster is a really top notch one! Maybe you could get a job in Hollywood and employ someone to take your icky meds for you?! ;)

The Meezers said...

our mommy just burritos us up in a towel or blankie and shoves the vile liquid down our throats. she's so fast we doesn't haf time to fight. but she's had like a squillion years 'sperience, and our grampa norton hadded to take med-i-kshuns efurry day for years afore he wented to the bridge.

Chance said...

Jan's Funny Farm said...

Abby, Your mom wants you to get well. She isn't trying to poison you. HOnest. She loves you.

Please take your med, even though it tates so bad you foam at the mouth.

Cat Street Boyz said...

Oh yeah, the foamy mouth, been through it, don't like it.....so after a good bite, mommy got a piller from the vet and we got the hang of it quickly! The blue pills for my liver aren't so bad but those little white ones are {{{{{{YUCKY!}}}}}}=^Y^=Setzer
