You may remember that back in January our cat Pepper was sick and had to go to the vet He came home with anti-nausea pills and a liquid antibiotic. Our instructions were to administer them both twice a day until they were gone.
Yesterday we squirted out the last of the medicine. I was hopeful Pepper would observe the bottle being tossed out and put two and two together, but he scooted out of the room before I made it over to the trash can. Today he still ran away every time I looked in his direction, but right before I gave him his second meal of the day he licked a bit of hairball medicine (his Saturday treat) off of my finger after sniffing it to make sure I wasn't trying to trick him.
Hopefully, as his medicine-taking experience fades into the distant past Pepper will forget his trauma. I wonder how long it will take?
