    Has anyone thought of using a Mynwood Cat Jacket to cover an area of sore, stitches etc instead of using an elizabethan collar. I have had a few customers use them for this reason when obsessive licking an sores have been a problem. The cat wears it all the time indoors and seems happier and because the area is covered up it heals quicker. My jackets are made using natural materials against the skin so breathable.

    Sounds a good idea, tried ringing you today thinking I might give you new measurements for Harvey and give him the new tartan jacket whilst letting Reuben have his old red one. Harvey is butching up and needs a little more slack in his jacket, the old one fits Reuben fine.

    I think that it might rub a bit and make it sore:(
    If it wasn't on too tight it might work though.

    To be honest, I wouldn't use them for that purpose, however, if you could make a loose body glove like the anti-suckling jackets that someone else makes, I'd love one! I've used these for sore spots and will again. They're fab.

    Had quite a few clients using my jackets very successfully for these reasons. Ive had amputee cats (front leg) too and it seems really successful for that. Ive had recently a couple of customers whos cat's obsessively licked a patch on the back and it worked - it doesnt rub as its snug and comfortable too - ive sometimes had to adjust the length to accomodate tumors etc too.

    They wouldn't be great if the cat had a sore tummy though, for example, which is why I'm wondering if you'd consider making the body glove types.

    nope i agree, my jackets dont really cover the tummy area because the chest strap is not that wide. I designed it so that it doesnt overheat the cat while wearing. The last thing you want is for your puss to get hot near a wound on the tummy area.

    I see you're reluctant for suggestions, so will bow out now and not comment any further. I do love your jackets for the purpose they were made for, i.e harnesses. They're fab at that. But my preference will always be for a light cotton body glove to stop suckling or to protect wounds. Just a pity they will not be part of your range as you'd have had a lot of breeders interested.

    Hi there lovey, just seen your post about this issue and im sorry for not replying before. My jackets are not stretchy or like a body glove as if they are more sturdy and secure for walking. I could suggest using a baby vest or something like that. I can make the chest strap much wider to cover the area on the tummy like i said but its not stretchy.
