Is there an easy way for this?

I just picked up Tubey from the vet.

She has to wear one of those cone things on her head. I know it's there for a reason, but I'm afraid she's going to hurt herself even more.

She's frantic, running and trying to jump on everything to get away from it. I tired taking it off but of course she tried licking at the sutures.

So I put it back on and locked her in my room. She's just going to have to get use to it.

Had to miss college too.

They didn't specify how long she needs to wear it. She dosen't get the sutures out for two weeks.....

If you are talking about an E collar I would recommend keep the kitty in a confined space until she realizes it isn't going to come off. Give kitty lots of love and attention to try to get her to forget about it. My Thai had to wear one and it was a chore. Hugs and prayers!

you can try one like this


Animals adjust to it faster because they still have their vision and hearing. Unlike with the traditional ecollar

Thanks, Ii ordered one, if she has to wear a collar for two weeks, that one looks much better. I odn't have one onher now, as I'm staying up all night to keep an eye on her, she's still sleeping and hasn't tried to lick at it since she starting napping.

If she gets up though, I will have to put the collar back on, as I need some sleep. Dozing on the kitchen floors isn't very comfy.
