    Rolling On The Floor Laughing!

    Thank you. I have not laughed this much in several months. I just gave one of my cats a heartworm pill yesterday. There is a large, deep cut on my right arm, a bite mark clear through my left cheek, and a brand-spanking new bloodstain on the carpet. The dog's pill was gone in under a second, and so was the bacon it was wrapped in, while the cat managed to pick the pill out of the bacon.

    This one's going on the fridge.
