Cats can get sick and they may need medicine. Giving a pill to a cat can be troublesome enough, but the real terror can occur if you ever need to administer eyedrops to your cat without losing a hand (or your own eye) in the process.
Squirting eyedrops into your cat’s eye is not a one-person job. You’ll need at least someone to hold the cat still. Preferably one person holds the cat, another holds the cat’s head, and still another administers the eyedrops while yet another person gets ready to call 911 in case the cat gets loose and causes massive bleeding among everyone involved. With a little foresight, you can successfully administer eyedrops to a cat, but it won’t be easy.
