If you find it a challenge to give your cat tablets then this useful tool could be just the thing! The pill popper works like a syringe. Insert the tablet into the end of the popper, place into the cat’s mouth and depress the plunger. Simple! Or maybe not! We find it works well to swaddle the cat with a towel first. To do this, place the towel on the floor in front of you. Kneel down and position the cat on the towel facing away from you. Bring the towel around the cat, ensuring that all the paws are inside. Hold the towel firmly and then tilt the cat’s head backwards. Insert the pill popper into the back of the throat and depress the plunger. This method does seem to be very effective and relatively easy once you have done it a few times.
