When Cats Need Cones

If you thought that only dogs wear cones, think again.

About three weeks ago, my husband accidentally slammed the tip of Tigger’s tail in the door. It ripped the hair and some skin clean off the end. Poor cat. We tried to help the tail heal with peroxide and triple antibiotic ointment, but the wretched  feline won’t leave it alone. So today, I took him to the veterinarian. The verdict is that this kind of wound is mostly irritating to the animal because it itches and hurts when its reopened. And due to the itch, Tigger wants to chew at it. Hence, the cone.

With the help of six days of prescription pain killers and the head vice, a full recovery is expected. Sadly for Tigger, he will look like a dufus until it heals.
