Recently our older grey tabby, Andy, started licking hotspots, so we needed to put him in an e-collar to prevent him from licking while we figure out what’s going on. I didn’t want to use the hard plastic collars that you get at the vet office, so I ordered one of the soft collars that had a thin strip of Velcro holding it on. Well, it was only a matter of days until Andy figured out how to pull that collar off, so I went in search of a different style that would be harder for him to remove.
I found this cute space design soft collar on Amazon that works really well. It has a large Velcro patch that Andy can’t pull open, it fits snugly but comfortably, and best of all, it’s the perfect size to keep him from licking his hotspots but he can still easily eat and drink without dragging the collar through his food and water.
So, if you find yourself in need of an e-collar for your cat, check out this one on Amazon, or another similar one. There seem to be multiple brands selling the same style, so you have a few to choose from. Hopefully we can figure out why Andy is having issues soon so he doesn’t have to wear it much longer, but for now he’s comfortable and he looks really cute!
