Cats Who Simply Won't Suffer the Indignity of the Cone of SHAME December 02 2021, 3 Comments
Most pet owners know the Cone of Shame just by its name; but did you know the correct term is an Elizabethan collar or E-collar for short? It comes from the style of ruffs or collars worn during (unsurprisingly) the Elizabethan era. These, uh, super stylish devices are often given to pet owners by veterinarians to prevent their pets from licking/scratching recent surgery sites, healing wounds, or even skin conditions like allergies. But we can't exactly explain to our favorite felines why we're submitting them to the fashion faux paw of the Cone of Shame. So we normally end up with some pretty entertaining photos.
