My kitty,Onyx, just had surgery on his ear to repair a hematoma. His ear is full of stitches inside and out. Since he would scratch the ear he has to wear an Elisabethan Collar which he, of course,hates. He finds it very difficult to eat and drink waterand sits around listlessly in one spot all day. Is there anything I can do to make this easier for him? He needs to wear the collar for 10 days, thats 8 to go at this point. How can I make his food/water more accessible? I tried taking itoff so he could eat,which was fine, but as soon as he was done he scratched his ear and ripped a stitch...Help!
