  Some folks have good luck with Pill Pockets.  Most vets carry them.  Pets 
Mart may as well.  Mine caught on the 2nd dose  and now avoid them like the 
  Pequita would get hysterical and foam at the mouth whenever I tried to pill 
her.  But she loves Gerber 2 Chicken and Gravy baby food.  I crush her meds, 
dissolve them in 1-2 cc of water and add them to a couple of tsp of Gerbers.  
She laps it right up.
  Shaft really needs the Tapazole to get his thyroid regulated.  If Pill 
Pockets don't work try the baby food.  Any meat variety works just make sure it 
doesn't have onions or garlic in it.    Also the Gerber 2 Chicken and gravy has 
100 calories per jar so it would help with the wt issue.

    My cat Shaft has lost nearly half his body weight.  Everyone here has been 
so sick I just didn't realize it until a few weeks ago (a few days before I was 
leaving for a week's vacation).  I got him into the vet suspecting hyper-t as 
soon as I got back.  That's what it was.  The vet detected a heart murmer as 
well.  He is an estimated 18 years old.  He had a fever and the vet put him on 
some amoxy for that, as well as the tapazole, of course.
  Problem.  He now hides and I have to chase him around to get any med.s down 
him.  I've given up on everything except the tapazole and he still hides.  
Should I stress him out with the chase down?  Crate him for a while?  He 
doesn't seem to be gaining ANY weight, and I have an appt. with vet again on 
Monday.  We were supposed to wait a month, but he's getting worse, not better.
  Does anyone have the link to join the hyper-t group or any other advice?  I 
am quickly losing my mind. la la la la.
