Dump the Cone

First, this ad caught my attention because of the last paragraph.

Quote:
My 1 year old female cat escaped last night. She has recently been spayed and is wearing a blue cloth cone around her neck to prevent her from removing her stitches. She is a grey tortie, no more than 6 pounds. She acts more like a dog than a cat and isn't shy around strangers. Her name is Fiona and usually comes when you call her.

If you see her or she wanders into your yard, please call, 619.XXX.XXXX.

Should I not find her, I will have a 33 year old male available for immediate adoption. No rehoming fee as he has a tendancy to leave doors open and dishes in the sink. No amount of nagging or training has helped.
But then I saw "cloth cone" and did a Google search. Didn't find that, but I found this, which may help some people who have sewing skills - which leaves me completely out.[attachment=0:1ok57f3x]cloth body cover.jpg[/attachment:1ok57f3x]

Here are the step-by-step instructions.

Re: Dump the Cone

That looks like a great idea, a onesie for cats! But how does she go to the bathroom?

I had to look it up! The last picture shows that their little bums are free to pee and poo.[attachment=0:1a5pra19]cloth cover - peeable.jpg[/attachment:1a5pra19]

Cute, but I think a kitty's fur coat is cuter.

Re: Dump the Cone

I know quite a few people who have used a onsie for their dog who has had surgery, especially s/n, and it works really well. They do make a soft e-collar, and I wonder if that is what this poor kitty has on?

I hope they find her soon because I am sure that it would be easy for her to get caught with that collar on her neck.

I think the idea is to stop cats chewing at their stitches, not to look good
