She hates them, but better than the anti-plucking vest or the collar. Isn't she pretty in pink?

The only place she tries to shred is the bottom, so I have started running a piece of bandage tape across the front bottom, and it seems to be working well.

How long has she had to wear that?  I too would choose a vest over that "cone of shame" collar.

Well I may have to check into what size "sock vest" for Yoshi.  Right now we are good, but you never know bout tomorrow.  I will never put on the collar again unless absolutely necessary.  Remember the gash he gave himself by sticking his foot under it and turning it all the time?

I get little girls small socks. If you make them, 2 things to remember. Put the holes close to the neck area, and put them close together ( so it looks like a racer back bathing suit or tank top) in the back. Not one on each side, but like both on the top. I bought the anti-plucking vest, and just hates it. It also throws her balance off, and causes her poop to stick to her vent. That causes an occlusion, and constipation. I guess thats pretty common when they can't squat like the want to. I have some pics. Let me know when you are ready. I also have instructions for a soft collar, but had trouble keeping them on .
