Hi Amy, I am so sorry you are going through this. It is hard to want to care
for a beloved kitty when they want no part of it. My sweet gentle Tucker used
to go absolutely ballistic whenever I tried to give him a pill. Sometimes I
think it is kinder to choose the least threatening or invasive

You did the kindest thing by helping the kitty go to the bridge so there is
no more suffering.
I totally understand what your going through as many of us do.
