wrap a piece of meat around it and that usually works. I had to give my brothers dog several pills while they were on vacation last year. She LOVED hot dogs so it was pretty easy to shove one into a piece of hot dog. Cats are too finicky!
Too funny that she would ask if liquid was easier. Maybe she's one of those who has 'the touch'. I used to - to be able to hold their head back, pop it in, and rub their throat. A girl at my last vet's office was a pro at that. I'm not coordinated enough anymore I guess.
