Help me trick my cat into eating his pills.

My cat Montgomery (Monty
) has been diagnosed with some liver problems. I've been given 5 different medications to give him twice a day. He is somewhat of a picky eater. I haven't started giving him the medication yet. My thought was to crush them up into soft food (which he loves and is allowed for once) and hope he eats it, but my worry is, what if he doesn't? I don't want to waste those pills!
Basically, I'd prefer not to force him to swallow them. Suggestions?
