@Terrificli -- suggestions? Here are a couple. The biggest problem is in containing the cat. If you are going to give a cat medicine, you usually need at least two people -- one to hold the cat in such a way that it can't get its claws free to shred people trying to medicate it and another to actually treat the cat.
One thing that will help in those instances is a wire screen. You can get a bargain window screen that will work nicely for just a few bucks at your local hardware store. If you hold the cat so that it's feet are on the screen, it will tend to sink its claws into the screen rather into the people administering medicine.
As for getting the cat to swallow its worm medicine, here's a trick that always works. After you get the medicine in the cat's mouth, hold the mouth shut and massage the its throat until it swallows. After the cat has taken its medicine, let the animal go and stay out of its way -- the kitty will want to escape and might claw anyone that it thinks is preventing it from doing just that.
