I am also glad I found him, poor terrified little soul. The pilling will be a challenge, for sure

We had a cat like him. He hated the pills. We bought a syringe and would powder each pill and dissolve it into a drop or two of water. Then it was easier to squirt it into the back of his throat. Good luck.

Yes, syringing is an option, but unfortunately these pills should not be crushed, they damage the oesophagus if not administered whole, in an enteric-coated form
