once we had to give my mom's cat medicine for her ringworm (we had found her along with her siblings and mom in the shed.)
She did appreciate having a tiny turkey baster-ish thing placed in her mouth so we could give it to her. XD
(at least it worked.)
Cats don't want anything in their mouths that isn't food they actually want to eat.
I had a slight typo: the cat most certainly DID NOT like the medicine. The method of administration can't have helped, but if we had put it in the food my cat probably would have got to it first. (He's always the first to the food dishes. )
