I have a 4 month old cat / kitten that comes from a shelter. She is afraid of both my girlfriend and me and still hides in corners after 2 weeks of being here.
She needs eyedrops and medications, which we need to drip in her eyes and put in her mouth. At the moment we try to pick up the cat and force the eyedrops (have not yet done the medications), but this makes her even more scared of us.
How can we give her her drops (up to 6 times a day) and her medications, while at the same time making her get used to us and getting picked up?
Edit: After 2 days of doing the medication /eyedrops first, and then the bribery, our cat-relation has improved.
