Hi there,
My little female kitten will be spayed in a few weeks time, and I was wondering if anyone could suggest an alternative to the Elizabethan collar. (So I can order it and it will be here in time) My other cat had a surgery a few years ago, and he hated the collar so much, I couldn't bear seeing him in so much misery. So I had to stay awake for days and watch him in case he would touch his stiches, but I am afraid that I can't stay awake and watch her constantly this time (because of work issues) when she will come home from the vet. Is there any better collars out there? Please let me know! Thank you!

Check with the vet what type of stitches they use. I was really worried about my three who were spayed last week because I thought they'd pick each others' stitches even if they didn't do their own. However, the stitches seem to have been inserted in a way that there's nothing for them to pick at so no collars were necessary and they haven't bothered the wounds other than to wash them. Someone else on here mentioned that their cat's wound was closed with glue rather than stitches so it's quite possible you won't need a collar at all.

If the stitches can't be dissolvable, then this collar might be an alternative :wink: :D

The poor animals don't exactly look very amused do they?! I guess if you had 2 cats wearing them, they could play a great game of 'bumper cars' :D (or should that be 'bumper cats' :D )

The product info says:

"It can be used to calm dangerous dogs"

"It is placed around the pet and inflated by mouth"

That's nothing I want to do.....stick my mouth/face up near a dangerous dog to inflate it :shock: :shock: :shock: !! LOL!! :lol: :lol:

Take care,
Carol
