How To  Give A Pill To a Cat
 
  1. Pick up cat and cradle it in the crook of your left arm as if holding a baby. Position right forefinger and thumb on each side of cat's mouth and gently apply pressure to cheeks while holding pill in right hand. As cat opens mouth, pop pill into mouth. Allow cat to close mouth and swallow.
     
  2. Retrieve pill from floor and cat from behind sofa. Cradle cat gently in left arm and repeat process.
     
  3. Retrieve cat from bedroom, pick up and throw soggy pill away.

  6. Kneel on floor with cat wedged firmly between knees, hold front and rear paws. Ignore low growls emitted by cat. Get spouse to hold head firmly with one hand while forcing wooden ruler into cat's mouth. Drop pill down ruler and rub cat's throat vigorously.
     
  7. Retrieve cat from curtain rail, get another pill out of foil wrap. Make note to buy new ruler and repair curtains. Carefully sweep up shattered figurines and vases from hearth and set on one side for gluing later.

In relation to your cute cartoon:

Ziggy LOVES love.

 

The London-based feline is always hitting up her owners, Andrew and Rebecca May, for snuggles, cuddles, scratches, and pats. Obviously, the Mays are happy to oblige Ziggy when they can, but since both of the cat’s humans work from home, there are times when business thas to trump sweetness.

 

Unfortunately, Ziggy has a hard time taking no for an answer. The cat still tries to find a way to sit on and distract her owners no matter how ASAP their work is.

 

 

Not wanting to deprive Ziggy of the attention she craves but recognizing there are moments in their day where they can’t have a kitty on them, the Mays came up with an ingenious solution to their conundrum.

 

Andrew got the idea to create a pair of “magic trousers” — a pair of pants and shoes stuffed to look like they are inhabited by a set of legs, with a heating pad inside.

 

 

The couple placed these dummy legs on the couch to see if Ziggy would take the bait, and the cuddly kitty instantly gravitated towards the open lap and took a seat.
