Poor kitty

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
So, my poor Easter has a cut on her chin. It's not deep, and it's not infected, but she's had it for a couple weeks. I think it's cause she keeps scratching it. Is there anything I can do to keep her from scratching it so it heals?

Cut her back toenails and keep them trimmed short, hopefully that will help it heal.

You could also put an E-collar on her, which unfortunately, she won't like. Cats usually heal quickly, though, so you may only need to use it a couple of days which will give it a chance to heal and let you clean and apply medicine to it.

I recently saw an alternative to the E-collar in a Care-A-Lot Pet Supply catalog. It allows cats to move much more freely and they're able to eat and drink comfortably. It's called a "Bite Not" collar. The website is www.carealotpets.com

BTW, what a great picture of Easter - she's a cutie!
