(3) 45 minutes later write a check and leave with a properly maintained vehicle where the fluids have been topped off, car has been washed, tires rotated, and courtesty inspection completed.

Man, that is too true. My partner and I have had a half-dozen cats over the past 30 years, and it was always a nightmare to give them pills. Even if it was liquid medicine, catching the cat and getting him/her to open their mouths at just the right time was an impossible feat of nerve and timing.

I used to wish for a "kitty vise" that would just hold the damn creature in place, kind of like Alex in Clockwork Orange, and then you just drop the pill in and say soothing words and pet their stomach. No such luck.
