Ostara came inside this morning with an injury. Maybe a scrap with the neighbor cat, or maybe she got stuck on something. Thankfully it isn't bad enough to need stitches, but it's deep enough it needs treatment.
At first I cleaned it and applied some ointment, but she licked that right off and obsessed over it, as all animals do. So I made a makeshift cone out of a paper plate and duct tape. It was perfect for a kitty head!
She isn't happy about it, needless to say. But it is staying put and she can still eat and drink.

Alex is holding her while I treat it again. You can't see it well here but it's not pretty.
She's just very unhappy at the moment. I can't blame her but this will speed her healing time, I hope and prevent infection.
Plotting revenge, I am sure.
