No, she didn't struggle. I rolled her over on her back and put it on her. Right after, a couple times she tried to nibble it, but i distracted her and moved her mouth away and she hasn't bothered it since. she wore it for a while then i took it off of her. She wore it again this evening to meet some of the family *my sister* that she hadn't met yet. I am going to have her wear it for a little everyday to sort of de-sensitize her.lol Omg she is sooo inlove with that bed. It is the softest thing i've felt inside. Its a cat bed and i got it on clearance at petsmart.
