My Cat Is Devious But Adorable

I mentioned that last week I took my cat Kadie to the vet. There's nothing seriously wrong with her, but she does have an allergy to fleas. Which sounds like the worst thing a cat can have actually. It's why the bites on her body don't heal properly and why the fur around her tail is a bit rough. The flea collar drove them away from her neck and down to her tail. So I had to get rid of that. Who knew flea collars were actually a bad thing?
She actually did have a collar that looked just like this
Her having an allergy means that it's now my job to give her pills. Steroids to be exact. She had them daily for a week and now has them every other day. Which is good for me because giving a cat a pill is a nightmare. I thought I'd try and train her by giving her a treat after managing to get the pill down her throat. Getting a cat to eat a pill is done by holding them down, lifting their head up, prying it open, and hoping to God they don't kill you before you get the pill in. Even then they tend to spit it out. It was so bad I actually apologised to my dad for if he ever had to force feed me medicine.
She also looks like she has drug problems
It seemed to be going well actually. On Monday and Tuesday she took the pill without much of a fight. On Tuesday she even opened her mouth and let me pop it in. I thought I'd done something barely anyone had ever done before; for a brief moment I considered I may have trained my cat. Then yesterday she fought again. So she tricked me into thinking she was being compliant. Because she's evil.

Because she's a cat.
