Must be a docile cat in the first place. My barn cats will strop your leg, and if in the mood may let you pet them if it strikes their fancy, but try to put one in a cage and WWIII is on. I can only imagine what 1 of them would be doing in a squeeze chute
Never try to tell me it can't be done

I think they slipped some sleeping agent into that cat's food before they put it in that cage. You wouldn't get either of my two cats in a cage like that without significant loss of blood. And, our female cat, is a talker and a squawler. She'll call you every name in the cat-book by the time you get her contained.
Whenever we needed to get one of ours in the carrier we had to set it up on end with the open door on top...in another room while one or the other of us were holding and petting the cat, then pick them up and walk into the room with the carrier and (most importantly) NOT LET THEM SEE IT until the last minute, whirl around and stuff them in like a slam dunk and close the door quickly before the managed to turn around in the carrier and start getting back out. They cooperated better at the vet because there were four or five of us to do the holding and stuffing, and they knew this was for the return trip home.
And ours were all pretty gentle and used to being picked up and handled!
Many zoos train their large/dangerous animals to lie next to the bars/wire to receive treats. This provides an opportunity to give them injections and even do ultrasounds (with the sensor on a stick, just in case).
Of course, this raises the specter of training a house cat - a daunting, well nigh impossible task. I never trained ours to do anything other than eat and scratch furniture.
