So, the cat’s head wounds have largely cleared up but it still looks someone went at his throat with a fillet knife. My father’s convinced he’s scratching at it. I proposed we get him a cat cone much like we’d used on our dog, Max. My father thought this would make an outdoor hat a sitting duck against the various feral beasts that roam our grounds and in a flash of inspiration he proposed we tie a sock around his throat. Yes, a sock. I caught him trying to size one up for our cat but it appears that to make it work we’d have to get a very long sock or tie a knot so tight that the neck wound would no longer be our cat’s greatest issue.
