Kitten in a Cone

Dear Liza,

Our cat, whose name is Mouse, is an adorable, fluffy ball of joy.

She also has allergies. Sometimes her skin gets so itchy that she scratches herself sore, and she looks like she’s been in a fight!

These aren’t new allergies; she sometimes looked like this in Salinas, but she was an indoor/outdoor cat then, and we assumed she was getting into tiffs with the neighbors.

But Mouse is strictly an indoor cat here in Portland, so we took her to the vet. She gave her some medicine to help with the Itchies. But it isn’t very effective, and is hard on her kidneys, so we can’t give her too much of it.

The Vet also gave us a cone. The cone is more effective than the medicine at keeping her from scratching herself, but she hates it. It is heavy and makes her clumsy.

She looks like a table lamp or a dish antennae. So, whenever we can, we take the cone off and snuggle.

Snuggles are good for everybody.

    1. Hello dear Donald,
      To ease your mind, Mousekin of the Mouseville Mousekins is doing much better. She only needs the collar in the afternoons when we are not right with her. She still scratches a bit but is healing, and much happier. We sure love our girl!
