Ms Akira's Gotcha Day

Today Ms Akira is 7 years old. Hurray!!
I don't feel 7 san. Are you sure? What are we going to do today?
Ms Akira spent a good deal of the time with The Butterflier. She is very good at it!
It was a good Gotcha day except when I had to eat the pill! YUCK!!

We tried to pill her but failed miserably. I ended up with a shredded shirt and a very angry kitty! Then I remembered Ginger Jasper's advice about giving her the crushed pill in some water. So I added a good measure of honeyed water to the crushed pill and put it all in a syringe. It was surprisingly easy from then on. Ms Akira has already forgiven me and is sitting on my lap as usual. Maybe tomorrow I would give her the pill in some Appelin as she has not been eating well these few days. The Appelin is sweet and so would disguise the taste of the clomicalm and she would eat more of her food to boot. It is true though that the clomicalm is rather bitter. I tried some of it and just like Ms Akira I must agree- YUCK!

Happy Gotcha Day. Sounds like there was some good, some bad in it.

We (and a whole lot of other bloggers) posted on this subject Saturday. Please stop by, read it and consider removing the illegible WV.

Again, Happy Gotcha Day, Akira!

Happy Gotcha Day, Akira!
We hope the syringe thing goes well for you. Mommy had to laugh, she too tried a taste of the clomicalm to see how bad it was...it IS icky! Paws crossed you start feeling better soon. Maui stopped spraying within a week of his first dose.

Happy Gotcha Day, Ms. Akira! I am glad that you had lots of fun except for the pill. I used to be hard to pill, myself, but I eventually got used to it.
