Poor Chadish had surgery on Thursday and although the old plastic cone head collars were more destructive and embarrassing for him he isn't so sure about this donut either. I on the other hand love it, and will not have to re plaster any walls this time! It really is a great invention though, its soft and when they lay down it acts like a pillow and really doesn't alter their vision like those old ones. He is a typical male though and needed allot of attention and sympathy, we had a very sleepless night and if I stopped petting him he would cry. He really is a lovable guy and hard not to feel sorry for though.
