well its not fun but heres the way the vet taught me and its pretty effective

1) put the cat on a counter

2) grab the nape of their neck tightly. This should not be painfull but you should notice their ears come back a bit

3) DONT LIFT STRAIGHT UP but lift backwards till the cats head it pointing towards the ceiling and their back feet are on the table supporting their weight.

4) pry their mouth open and drop the pill in the BACK of their mouth. They have fewer taste buds back there and shut their mouth quickly massaging their neck till they swallow.

5) give them a good treat for putting up with the pill afterward.. it helps them from being so mad at you when its all over.
