I just pick up Cody, tell him that I'm going to win because I'm bigger than him plus that I'm his mom and I get to do whatever I want, when he has kids, either fur or human, he can have his way then, lay him down on his back, roll him over on his side a little bit, lift ear, insert drops, rub ear a bit to get them distributed.
He snorts and makes noises sometimes, but he's good about it.

In all seriousness, I agree with Josie. I have sometimes done things to Cody when he was sleepy. I will say though, sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't.
