This is always a sad sight. I remember when our dog Quincy had to have leg surgery, he had a cone around his head for a week or so. It was quite pathetic.

Buuuuuut, you gotta do what you gotta do so your pooch or kitty cat won’t eat the stitches in their body, and they can recover quickly.

Still, it is sad…I think we can agree on that.

1. Got a little helper.

2. He’s not feeling it.

My sweet, special guy has cancer ?… He stars in his own YouTube movie called “Chinese is Fetching” – and it’s super cute if you want to watch it :)…. he and his siblings also have a YouTube video called “Licking Time” (but sooo many things come up under that so you have to go to my channel “Kerry Lea” or “Kerry Vera” to find it…) (it’s a musical)… I’m absolutely broken hearted that one day this guy won’t be in our lives anymore… BUT— he’s been so brave and courageous… living his life to the fullest and never complaining… he’s teaching me lots of lessons… ❤️❤️❤️… #poorcat #conelife #coneofshame #elizabethancollar #conehead #poorbaby #catsofinstagram #catstagram #bestcatever #mypoorguy #bravecat #catwarrior #kerryveralea #chinesethecat #coneheadcat #myspecialboy #catrescue #cancersucks
