Ok, putting outdoors cat in cage:

Make appointment with vet.

Have cage somewhere where he doesn't notice it, on a chair with door entry facing up.

Put on gloves to protect against claws.

Close all doors to areas where he may hide (for ex., behind washing machine, under beds).

Invite cat inside with yummy treats (he would like a bird or bunny he can torture, but we don't go that far).

Act normal and have wife pick up cat and pet him until he's purring and eyes are closing.

Open pillow case and have wife drop cat inside and quickly close pillow case.

Attempt to put pillow case in cage and close door.

Call vet and cancel appointment, put cage away and let cat outside when he comes out from behind sofa.

Wait until cats forgets this affront to his dignity. This takes about a year.

Start over.

Gene

Here is a really useful tip for those of you that are remodeling your bathrooms.

How to christen your new Thetford or Sealand toilet:

1. Put both lids of the toilet up and add 1/8 cup of pet shampoo and 1/2 gallon water to the bowl.

2. Pick up the cat and soothe him while you carry him towards the bathroom.

3. In one smooth movement, put the cat in the toilet and close both lids. You may need to stand on the lid.

CAUTION: Do not get any part of your body too close to the edge, as his paws will be reaching out for any purchase they can find.

4. The cat will self agitate and make ample suds. Never mind the noises that come from the toilet, the cat is actually enjoying this.

5. Flush the toilet three or four times. This provides a "power-wash" and rinse".

6. Have someone open the front door of your trailer or motorhome. Be sure that there are no people between the bathroom and the door.

7. Stand behind the toilet as far as you can, and quickly lift both lids.

8. The cat will rocket out of the toilet, streak through the bathroom, and run outside where he will dry himself off.

9. Both the commode and the cat will be sparkling clean.

If you don't have your own cat you can usually borrow one from a neighbor.

Apologies for those who have seen this before. Last posted in May '05.

I think it's best to use a neighbor's cat, especially if it's a neighbor you don't like.

I came close to snorting out loud at # 4.

Too funny!

Pill

I think you wrote about my wife's cat Jessie. She is a Manx and has a radar early warning system when it comes to pills. ...Tim

Our Weimaraner likes her pills with a big glob of peanut butter. It is rather entertaining for us as well.

Cat murderer. We have had barn cats for 60 years. My Dad died as a result of an injury caused by a small cat who couldn't stay away from him. All 20 or so cats felt at home on the ranch but never entered our home. One little cat would follow my dad where ever he went. The chickens, ducks, geese and dobermen dogs all followed dad around the farm. They all got along. They didn't like the pigons though! One day the small cat decided he wanted to be on dad's head and simply climed up the pant leg and caused dad to fall and break his hip. It was down hill from there. 40 years later we still have the cats. Although I'm sure these aren't original they must be related however. The scary thing is, now the cats, chickens, ducks, geese and dobermen follow me around all day. Even when I on the tractor. I think I'll wear overalls when I'm outside with the critters!
