I've been doing subcutaneous fluids with mine for the past month or so, and I'm surprised at how well she tolerates it. I was worried I'd loose her due to not being able to give her fluids, but she's great once I catch her. I had another cat that I'd had since she was a kitten with Chronic Kidney Disease before her and she was really sweet until it was time for fluids. Catching her was an ordeal, and I had to restrain her while doing fluids to keep her still enough.

We were at the emergency vets over the 4th of July as the problems started, and I told them she was feral when I got her (or she got me) 10+ years ago. They wrote "fractious cat" on the top of her chart, and the tech laughed when they saw me cuddling all 6 1/2 pounds of her after walking in the room.
