So, this is what poor Toby recently had to endure while his wound was healing. There was about 2 weeks of wearing the collar, which made everything (eating, using the litter tray, not bumping into stuff) a bit more difficult. Poor thing! But it paid off. New skin began growing around the injured area about 10 days ago, and the wound is now almost closed up!
On the whole, he handled his confinement pretty well. There wasn’t too much complaining most days. Sometimes he was even allowed to go without the collar for a whole afternoon (!), while it was washed and line dried. Now (finally!, he says) the torture is over.
