Heya,

I think I may have asked about this at BetterMost before.  But, I'm going to ask again.  For cat-lovers/ owners on this thread... do you have any great advice about tactics for administering Frontline flea treatments to cats?  Vivien and I just spent a miserable evening chasing around my apartment until I finally cornered her to administer the drop to the back of her neck. 

She's at the point now that she knows the *second* that I get the package out... or sometimes even as I walk towards the cupboard where I keep the package... and she begins to take evasive actions.

I feel so guilty because this whole process causes her so much angst.  But, once it's over she's perfectly fine (I mean she's mad at me) but, she doesn't seem to have any adverse reactions to the medication once it's on her.  She doesn't scratch at the spot or act like the medication is bothering her at all.

So, any clever advice about tricks to making this whole process easier would be much, much appreciated.

Thanks!

I have 2 cats a nd 2 dogs.one of each don't mind the drops the other 2 hate it.I have resorted to bribery,stick the cat on my lap when hes in a good mood,having already got the drops ready.Scratch all round his ears and neck.whilst raisng the fur,at same time daughter hand feeds him cheese and i pounce with the drops.I make sure that the drops are ready at the end of the tube.He doesnt like it but  we often sit sacratching his ears and neck and feding him cheese,he is always surprised.
The day of action so to speak the drops are ready behind a cushion on the sofa,and he nevr knows if it is just a cheese day or cheese and drops!!!! gets him every time.

His long Winter hair made him look like a tiny bear before this cut!

I have one cat in particular that really hates it and he knows what the package looks like. As soon as he hears the "snap" of it opening he runs.  So i've learned to open it in a different room and not let him see it. I go up and start petting him and scratching his neck and when he starts really getting into it I put on the medication.  By the time i'm done is when he starts feeling it.  Works like a charm every time.  ;D
