You got that right - kitty harpoons for sure.  I did it while ago and I just 
can't do that anymore.  It hurt her when I put it in.   Then of course it 
freaked me out which I'm sure made it worse for her.   I'll talk with my vet 
tomorrow.  Maybe he has those 20 gauge needles.  She's only like 4 lbs. and 
that needle weighs more than she does!

Maureen, I use the Terumo UTW 20 gauge needles.  UTW = ultra thin wall  A UTW 
20 will have the same flow rate as those 18 gauge kitty harpoons. I get mine 
online from Thriving Pets. Sharyl

For you guys that give sub-q fluids - 
 
What size needle do you use?  A friend showed me how to do it yesterday but she 
has these huge 18 gauge needles.  I'm wondering if I can use a smaller size.  
It's for my 6 month old kitten so I hate stabbing her with that huge thing.
