Creating a flavored pill coating substitute

I'm sorry for such a weird question, but I'm a bit desperate and I wondered if anyone here would have ideas. I've been trying to create a DIY pill coating for a very powdery and bitter heart medication that my cat is unable to tolerate (vets and pharmacies won't compound or offer alternatives, so I'm trying to MacGyver something in my kitchen). I've tried experimenting with gelatin but haven't got it into a fine enough film that will 'stay' on the pill and not be chewed away to reveal the pill inside. Ideally I could get either a fish/meat/cheese/butter taste into the coating. submitted by /u/flopbot [link] [comments]
