|Everyone has given awesome advice! I just want to give my 2 cents on physically pilling her if you can't get her to eat it......My PIckles gets lots of meds so I have really gotten down to a science.
If you have to do it, make sure you get a pill stick. The one I recommend and really like is the "Pet Piller" by H-Bar-S Boerne. You can easily find it on Amazon. Put the pill in the tip. Go to your cat and straddle her on the floor. You should both be facing the same direction. Reach over her head with your non-dominant hand, holding the pill stick in you other hand. Use your thumb and pointer finger to push on the rear of the jaw, and as soon as she opens her mouth, quickly pop the piller to the back of the throat. Wa La! As long it goes to the back of the throat kitty has to swallow. I like to coincide the meds with eating or something special, so feed kitty afterwards and she'll forget all about it!
