    Has anyone else given their cat a shot before? I’ve done insulin on Herbert, but he’s a pretty chill cat and because the insulin shots were 2x a day he was completely used to it and didn’t put up a fight. Cola only gets her shot once a month, so she isn’t used to it and really doesn’t like it :( Up until now the shelter was still doing her shots, so I hope she doesn’t hate me after I do this :pray:

    Maybe I’ll wait until she wakes up from her nap and is hungry so I can feed her right after so she loves me again :pray:

    Maybe cover her head with a blanket as you hold her so she cant see what youre doing?

    Actually sleeping might not be a horrible idea. That’s usually when I brush her arthritic hips because she hates that too.

    I managed to get about half of her injection into her, the other half is on her fur :imslow: but she’s running around pouncing on her cardboard toys, so obviously she got over it quickly.
