Violet is too smart for her own good.

Yesterday I gave them their dinner and Vi got her small half a tramadol pill out of the piece of wet food and left it on the floor as she has done so many times before. When she had finished, I put it in the bowl (which is on a bucket to make it the right height for her) so that monkey wouldn't get it. She was no where near her dish at the time. Not ten minutes later I walked by and the pill was back on the floor.

I did eventually get it into her with a small piece of cheese which we reserve only for such "emergencies" as she shouldn't have it but loves it. To be honest, I think she knows this and orchestrates this little game to get the cheese!

I wish she as smart enough to realize how important this medication is for her. But she ate it all up this morning including all the pills.

Her meloxicam is liquid and chicken flavored so I give her the dose in a small amount of chicken stock (I am making it all the time anyway). The tramadol comes in liquid as well, but she turned her nose up and wouldn't touch the broth with it in. A costly little experiment. So we are back with the pills half twice a day.

The vet left about 20 minutes ago. Shreddy is no longer in pain. We are going to miss him a lot. He was a sweetheart.

Taxlady, I'm so sorry. Shreddy would say thank you for being such a good owner and taking such good care of him.

I'm sorry to hear about your cat, Linda. You did all you could for him and gave him some great memories to take with him.
