thanks everyone, much appreciated, I love him to bits so I don't care about the money, if it is just hypothyroidism then it'll cost about £20 a month for the tablets which is nothing, and a blood test once a year just to keep a check on things. Wife reckons I care more for him than I do for her, can't think why  :hmmm: :D

As has been said before, lock them both in a shed for 24 hours and when you let them out, see who is the most pleased to see you >:D

My ex's cat had the same, although the tablets were a little more (about £30 a month). As this particular cat really hated taking tablets and it would be every day, she opted for a radiotherapy treatment instead where they essentially irradiate the offending thyroid to reduce it and pretty much cure the condition. Cost about £2000 and you're not allowed near your radioactive cat for a fortnight, but the cat's still going strong some 3 years later.

Cats and tablets donít go together. With a dog, you just wrap the tablet in bacon and throw it for them. We tried everything to get our cat to take a worming tablet when we first got her. We crushed it in her food, but she ate all the food and left the bits of tablet. We popped it in her throat and she spat it out. Eventually took her to the vet and he gave her an injection. Fortunately for the next 11 years she never needed tablets.
The years have been good to me, it was the weekends that did the damage.

How to give a cat a pill:

  1)  Pick up cat and cradle it in the crook of your left arm as if holding a baby. Position right forefinger and thumb on either side of cat's mouth and gently apply pressure to cheeks while holding pill in right hand. As cat opens mouth, pop pill into mouth. Allow cat to close mouth and swallow.

    2)Retrieve pill from floor and cat from behind sofa. Cradle cat in left arm and repeat process.

   3) Retrieve cat from bedroom, and throw soggy pill away.

    4)Take new pill from foil wrap, cradle cat in left arm, holding rear paws tightly with left hand. Force jaws open and push pill to back of mouth with right forefinger. Hold mouth shut for a count of ten.

    5) Retrieve pill from goldfish bowl and cat from top of wardrobe. Call spouse from garden.

   6)Kneel on floor with cat wedged firmly between knees, hold front and rear paws. Ignore low growls emitted by cat. Get spouse to hold head firmly with one hand while forcing wooden ruler into mouth. Drop pill down ruler and rub cat's throat vigorously.

   7)  Retrieve cat from curtain rail, get another pill from foil wrap. Make note to buy new ruler and repair curtains. Carefully sweep shattered figurines and vases from hearth and set to one side for gluing later.

  8  )  Wrap cat in large towel and get spouse to lie on cat with head just visible from below armpit. Put pill in end of drinking straw, force mouth open with pencil, and blow down drinking straw.

  9)  Check label to make sure pill not harmful to humans, drink 1 beer to take taste away. Apply Band-Aid to spouse's forearm and remove blood from carpet with cold water and soap.

 10)  Retrieve cat from neighbor's shed. Get another pill. Open another beer. Place cat in cupboard, and close door onto neck, to leave head showing. Force mouth open with dessert spoon. Flick pill down throat with elastic band.

   11) Fetch screwdriver from garage and put cupboard door back on hinges. Drink beer. Fetch bottle of Scotch. Pour shot, drink. Apply cold compress to cheek and check records for date of last tetanus shot. Apply whiskey compress to cheek to disinfect. Toss back another shot. Throw T-shirt away and fetch new one from bedroom.

   12) Call fire brigade to retrieve the damn cat from tree across the road. Apologize to neighbor who crashed into fence while swerving to avoid cat. Take last pill from foil-wrap.

13)   Tie the little @!!@#@#$%'s front paws to rear paws with garden twine and bind tightly to leg of dining table, find heavy-duty pruning gloves from shed. Push pill into mouth followed by large piece of steak filet. Be rough about it. Hold head vertically and pour 2 pints of water down throat to wash pill down.

   14) Consume remainder of Scotch. Get spouse to drive you to the emergency room, sit quietly while doctor stitches fingers and forearm and remove pill remnants from right eye. Call furniture shop on way home to order new table.

  15)  Arrange for RSPCA to collect mutant cat from hell and call local pet shop to see if they have any hamsters.

We tried this with Harvey, our Romanian Rescue. He was able to keep the pill in his cheek for some time, spitting it out later. Even grinding the pills up and hiding in food was a nightmare...

That's the problem with ex-street dogs; they are extremely crafty. :-)

I'm sorry, but I laughed out loud at that one.

Maybe you could make a scale model of the repaired fence.
