@SZapper - That's a really helpful hint for giving a cat medicine. Because you're right about cats and medicine! Most cats are not crazy about taking medicine and make it really difficult for you to give it to them.
But regarding eye ointment, I can't really blame them! Obviously I wasn't prescribed the same eye ointment as an animal, but I did have to use eye ointment on myself a few years ago.
It wasn't a very pleasant process and I couldn't stop trying to close my eyes before the ointment went in. The eye ointment did work for me in the end but I really hated it!
