This is what happens when your cat won't stop licking a wound.
A week ago I came home to find Owen in the sink licking his paw. He had cut all of his toes on his front left paw. My guess is that he was mooching for food scraps in the compactor in the sink and cut it on the blade.
Owen wouldn't stop licking his paw, which was preventing the wound from healing. My wife took him to the vet. He came home sporting the latest in cat fashion.
Owen hates the cone. He's had it on for several days and still isn't used to it. He continuously walks into walls with it and has problems judging distances. He is forced to eat his food slower as it is a challenge, which frustrates him because he enjoys devouring his food.
So, share this picture with your cats and warn them that they'll become gimps like Owen if they refuse to stop licking.
