i have 2 cats that stay at my mums and ever since me and my GSD have moved out one of the cats who is a spayed 15 year old has been in a few fights. the other cat is a neutered 7 year old! usually my GSD would scare any cats away when they were trying to fight with our cats. but obviously since we dont stay at my mums anymore she isn't able to do that. Lucky the 15 year old has had a few serious cuts to her head - she obviously went to the vet and got tablets - to cut a long story short it was a few months ago this happened and she has had a few different lots of tablets to help the pain because she keeps opening up the wound - by rubbing herself across the couch or scratching. there is a small scab on one of the puncture wounds, fur has grown over the other one. however we noticed yesterday that she has another gash on her neck - luckily enough she is a great wee cat and allowed me to clean it with salted water - she purred as i did it! she loves the outdoors but we are trying to keep her in more. also where the cut is we cant' put a lamp shade thing from the vets on her - because it will irritate the cut even more! my question is if there is anything else that we could use to prevent her scratching/ rubbing at the cut making it worse? Oh she will be going to the vets as soon as we can get an appointment!
