Hi! My name is Sadie and my Mommie and I wish all of you a wonderful and safe holiday. Mom has written a lot about me. First, she told you about how she "thought" she was tricking me into taking pills in Pill Pockets.

I have hyperthyroidism and need medication every day. Since Mom tries so hard, I let her think I didn't know it was medicine.

I think she caught on, though, because then she got me something called soft chewy treats. She takes pills for something called hypothyroidism, so both of us have special moments every morning. Gotta tell you, Mom doesn't think I know that the chewy treats are really medicine, but they taste so good, I just love 'em!

Anyway, just wanted to pop in to say "HELLO!" and to give lots of kitty kisses and meows to everybody out there! See you next year!

Hi Sadie and Gail. A very Merry Chrismas to you both. I've never had much luck trying to hide medicine, but maybe it's because I have not tried those soft chewy treats. Thanks for letting me know. 🙂
Instead I have used cat malt - a little bit on my finger, which the cat licks off, then the pill into the back of cat's mouth before she notices what's going on, and finally some more cat malt - and lots of cuddling and praise.
For those, who don't know cat malt: It's a sweet substance, which most cats are crazy about. It is supposed to stimulate appetite and also to help hair balls through the system.

Hi Sadie, happy Christmas to you and your mommie, from England,You are a beautiful girl, I love your photo, and you are very wise to take your medicine like a good girl,as we mommies get very upset if you need it and we have to force you.
