So following the good advice from forum members, I placed the carrier on a chair in the living room, open side up about a week ago. This morning I put on a pair of heavy ski gloves, and then with soft strokes and melodious crooning, picked up my little sweetie. Held his front legs together and his back legs together and put him into the carrier rear end first. Pushed his head in (a couple of times) and zipped it shut.
WOW! This was so much easier for both of us than anything I've tried before. I got zero scratches and he didn't moan all the way to the vet.

Funny thing is that, after being examined and getting his shots, he runs right into the carrier on his own. Now it's a place safe from the doggies who were also visiting the Vet.
Awww i'm glad you figured it out...glad kitty is happy too!
