Any suggestions on what to do help Ollie since he is going to have to wear a cone? It's going to be miserable for him because it is going to be right up next to his sore. I took it off him last night as soon as he got home, but he scratched at it this morning so I'm going to have put it back on. They gave me the hard plastic thing- poor kitty. I know I can get the soft ones at Petco, but it's still going to be obnoxious where it will be located.
Poor Ollie. No cat wants to wear that cone. My only suggestion would be your thought which is the softer ones. I think if you were able to trim either cone so Ollie could have some peripheral vision, might help some with the freak out factor.
Good luck. Maybe someone else will have an idea...
thanks for that link Jade...these are just awesome...so much more humane than those stiff old plastic collars where kitties can't even walk or eat properly with them on....
the only time I had to use one I cut the plastic down 1/2 way to make it less cumbersome but these are just so much more cozy looking...a pillow!!!!
He might actually leave the shirt on since it's been so cold.
He still hasn't clawed on it but I imagine he will as it heals. He has rubbed it on the carpet while I rub his tummy. I'm the only person he lets do that. :)
He's not supposed to go outside so he is getting huffy since the door is closed. It won't matter the next couple of days anyway-we are supposed to get 12-15 inches of snow the next 36 hours. I don't like snow. :(
