Improvisational Pet Medicine

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.
