You think taming a lion is hard? Try making a cat take pills! Some owners don’t even bother: they pay the vet to do it. But Nick Filippou, the creative mind behind I iz Cat will show you that it’s completely possible to perform this task on your own. Like his 10-step comic guide shows, all it takes is just a little thinking outside the box.

“I’ve given pills to my own cat and some shelter cats I volunteer at,” Nick told Bored Panda. “It’s never a fun experience, haha. It’s kind of always been a battle.”

Seriously, though. Nick said some things do help. For example, a pill pusher. “[Or] little tricks [like] scuffing, wrapping the cat in a blanket, and popping the jaw open behind the back teeth. Still, once the pill goes in the mouth, it always pops back out, haha. That’s the battle.”

Right now, Nick has only one cat, Minnie. “She was formerly was a feral cat from Little Flower Rescue, and I got to meet her as a volunteer. I fell in love immediately.”

“I had another former feral, named Sylvia, who sadly passed away last year,” Nick said. “She was a tortoiseshell cat with three legs. I adopted both of them at the same time about four years ago. Sylvia had some serious tortitude… but she was a loyal and very cute cat. I miss her every day.”
