We recently came across a stray kitty with a broken tail. We started feeding her and then yesterday we finally got her operated, for the severed tail and her spaying. We are doing the post-op care for her at home since the hospital was full and didn't have space in their facility. As of now she is isolated in one of the rooms in the house. We tried putting a cone on her but she stopped eating right after. Without the cone, she tends to lick the wounded area and even bit off some of the stitches. How important is the cone? the stitches have not come off.
