Ohhh, a tube shirt is a great idea (and cheaper, especially if just trying it out).
And she does hate being held (I can pet her alright, but ANY sort of restraining and she gets all upset). You'd think after 10 years, all her feralness would be out of her by now!
The medicine I give is Methigel. It's supposed to be palatable (good tasting) for cats, but she will not eat it. Alone OR mixed up in food. If I don't give it to her, urine PH goes back up to 7 and infection sets in. (I slacked off the last couple weeks, to give her a break from all the "wrestling" every morning, and last night she went to 4 different spots before finally getting out a tiny dribble...so I think she's infected AGAIN).
There are pills, but that wouldn't be much better than syringing the gel to her anyway (plus, pills aren't metabolized by the body as well as liquids are).
Maybe I should just euthanize her, so she doesn't have to deal with all this junk anymore
(she doesn't like Zinny always trying to play with her, either!)
