This photo courtesy of Janet Winikoff shows Humane Society of Waterville animal care technician Susan Wyman as she attempts to give shelter cat Birch a pill Tuesday, Sept. 20, 2011, in Waterville, Maine. Wyman is using a pill syringe to administer the pill quickly. There is no question cats are harder to medicate than dogs. Many dogs, especially bigger ones, appear to inhale their food, so they barely notice a little medicine. Cats are more likely to chew and bite down on a pill, spit it out and leave it behind.
