The Homemade Cone Collar Adventure


It has been awhile since you heard from me!

I got neutered! I now cannot have any kittens. A special thanks to the Humane Society of Jefferson County, TN and the vet doctors they used for this low cost neuter. So I don’t lick my self, my momma hooman made me a homemade cone collar.

She used a black construction type paper, maybe crafting paper. Cut a circle in the dead center of it, about the size of my regular collar. I saw her cut a corner section out. Then she rounded the four corners. After that, my momma hooman and daddy hooman put it on me and fastened it with some tape.

It was fun trying to get use to this device. It didn’t help I was still feeling the effects of the anesthesia. Plus, some pain in my hind leg area.

I kept it on all night long. I got to cuddle with my momma hooman, then my daddy hooman. I often went to the bedroom door, where my sister, Lilly Bug was. @lillybugpatterson. I kept doing a rotation of that.

I tried to get this thing off me, but nothing seemed to work. I know it kept me off balance. I couldn’t see around me. I couldn’t use my whiskers to know if I can fit in places. When I would jump off the bed, It seemed front heavy. I would always run the cone part into walls and furniture in the bedroom.

It wasn’t comfortable at all, but it worked! I couldn’t lick where the incision was.

However, after my daddy hooman left for work this morning, I was able to free myself from the homemade cone collar. I had it on all night long too. My momma hooman saw that and made me a different one her friend Sandy made for her dog when he had this done. It used a towel and tape. The Towel Collar.
