The indignity of it all!

Blue Color Point RagdollI was looking for a picture of Sookie to show how she likes to be held and came across these rather embarrassing photos.

I would never dream of clothing my cats normally, but here’s the story behind it!

When Sookie was spayed last year it caused a bit more upset than we expected. She just wanted to bound around the house as normal, but as she was wearing a cone which scraped against every surface she passed or bumped into, this absolutely terrified our other ragdoll Mr Darcy who reverted to hissing at her or hiding. She also soon became miserable at not being able to groom herself and found eating and drinking difficult too.

Sookie is a very clever little kitty and kept finding ways to slip off the cone, so we were worried that she would lick the stitches which the vet had said must not happen!

In desperation I bought a babygrow, which I then modified with some needle and thread. It covered her stitches but she could still move around and use the toilet without issue. It looked utterly ridiculous and she had the most comical walk whilst wearing it, but it worked a treat and Mr Darcy soon accepted that his Sookie was back home!

I’m happy to report that the stitches healed to schedule and the babygrow was banished to the back of the cupboard, hopefully never to be needed again!!
