There is a Yahoo Assist Feeding group.
http://pets.groups.yahoo.com/group/Feline-Assisted-Feeding/

When you join you will received several files explaining how to safely assist 
feed.   I've used syringes, a baby spoon and a finger for different kitties.  
You just need to find a method that works for you and your kitty.
