I have to make Mr Kitty clothes some times because he will find a spot on himself and lick it til he has made
it raw. I think once they do that, make a sore spot, then they try to make it better by continuing to lick the
spot. Of course that makes it worse.
A few years ago, I came up with a solution.
Go to the dollar store or wherever but you don't need the expensive thermals. Just get the cheapest you can find.
Cut the legs out. Measure from the cuff bottom for the length of the cat and cut to measure....leave the cuff, you
want to cut at the other end. At the cuff end, you want to make two holes (not in the cuff as the cuff is the neck
area)...the two holes are for the cat's front legs.
Put the cuff end over the cats head, put his two front legs in each hole, pull thermal down over his body.
That will cover the raw licking spot so he can't lick it. He can still wash his face, his paws, etc.
The raw spot will normally repair itself over the course of a few days.
I take his 'jacket' off every day and brush him, then put it immediately back on.
Once the spot has healed, take the jacket off and leave it off.
I only put the jackets on Mr Kitty when he has licked himself a raw spot.
Cat's need their fur exposed as it is their fur that cools and heats their body. You don't ever want clothes
constantly on your cat. This is just a solution that works and you won't need to drag him to the doctor
office and pay a vet every time your cat makes a sore.
Also, it's best to choose the white thermals so dyes don't get in his raw area.
