I was wondering if Cleo will always have a scar on her because she has no fur to hide it like other cats.

I do not know, so I'm throwing this out anyways in hopes someone can say whether this would work or not.
With humans, or at least with myself... vit E cream with no additives (perfumes/etc) has helped heal up some scarring very well and very fast (compared to letting it heal on its own with no cream).
Would it help Cleo's scar, to put vit E cream on it?
There is evidence that it's not the vit E that fades scars--it's the massage when you rub it in. You can use any lotion for the same effect. A study were participants smoothed vit e oil onto scars vs rubbing it in actually showed that vit E used that way (not rubbed in) actually *delayed* healing and scar fading.
Here is a picture of her scar but it came out bad.
I will try to get a better pic where you can see it better.
