That is so amazing! Your poor kitty! But what a great thing it is to be able to sew up a "medical T-shirt" for your cat when such a thing is needed. Nice job!

Oh, he does look so very cute in his tee, even though I am with you, I don't think cats belong in clothes for fashion reasons! Glad kitty is better now :o)

Your poor kitty! About 4 years ago I took my mostly outdoor cat to the vet to get fixed. They didn't tell me beforehand that I would need to keep the cat indoors for 10 days so it wouldn't rip open the stitches. They put one of those plastic collars on her and she screemed by the back door for a couple hours and then pulled it off anyway. I took an old worksock, cut off the closed part, cut our 4 small holes for paws and dressed up the cat. She went through 3 sock sweaters but it kept her safe.

MY dog had the same condition and the vet diagnosed him with a staff infection - you are so clever:)

Oh my gosh, too funny! Seeing a kitty in a turtleneck of course, not that he was sick and needed it! I'm glad he's better. My cat is all orange (and a LOT bigger - 17 pounds!) but their faces are really really similar. I can only imagine how he'd look at me if I put a turtleneck on him.

Good for you improvising and making this for your kitty. My daughter is fixing to graduate from vet school and I am going to show her this for reference sake. It's great that your kitty is on the mend.

I'll have to keep this invention in mind...I have four cats. I know what you mean about clothes for a cat ;-) Good job! Glad Riley is better.

My female cat, Bertie, had a wound on her back a number of years ago and I had to do the same thing. I used a white sock with a red band around the top. I cut of the foot part and cut two holes for her front legs. It did the trick until she was healed. She did not like it much either, but after a couple of days she got used to it. She weighs about 6.5 pounds so the sock worked well. A sock might be too tight for a bigger cat though.

"...Riley looked ready to play jazz flute..." Wah! Hilarious! Ingenious and stylish solution you've worked up there.
