This is my cat when I give him pills. He is on a course of antibiotics right now and every time he swears it's the worst possible thing that could be happening. I'm like bro, do you want infected teeth again?? Just take the damn pill!
My other cat was easy to give pills to, she just accepted it and it wasn't a big deal for her.
Giving cats pills is an art. I've gotten really good at it, my cat who hates it used to have to take pills 3 times a day for years. He seems to like it less this time around though.
