It is nothing serious- Nova got bit by a bug on her ear, then scratched herself itching it. Now she keeps itching the scab off and wont let it heal. I think 24-48 hours in the cone and we will be in great shape.
Poor thing is a mess, totally scared and hasn't stopped shaking since I put it on a few minutes ago. Like with most new things I expect her to warm up to it in a few hours. Hopefully she wont get too brave though- as you all know Nova is actually a ninja and can remove/escape from every collar/shirt/pen/gate she is given. Kinda convenient for shirts cause she wears them if she is cold, then takes them off if she gets too warm, but with everything else it is a bit of a pain. Wish me luck! With all things Nova I need all the luck I can get.
