One is Toy Story hero Buzz Lightyear...and the other is my cat Popo.
Both think they can do amazing things.
Both think they are super-cool.
Only one of them can fly in space. Maybe.
The other can catch butterflies, and birds.
Popo is my always-fighting cat. He goes out in Minami HIragishi and has fights with stray cats. Recently he was bitten on his back and the wound didn't heal.
So the vet washed the wound, stitched it (without anesthetic!) and then put Popo in an Elizabeth collar for TEN DAYS to stop him licking and reopening the wound.
TEN days. It's hard for him, and us.
At home he crashes into furniture and scares himself with the sound of the plastic. He scares his brother Chichi. There was a little bullying too - animals are not kind to injured animals.
We try to give him a change of scene by taking him for walks in the garden etc. But we have to be careful about crows getting too interested in the collar, or if he gets stuck behind/under something.
At night...he tries to climb into bed with me...the plastic collar is large and noisy!
This kind of collar is called an E-collar. The E stands for "Elizabeth", after Queen Elizabeth I of England. She was famous for her huge, gorgeous dress collars and she started a new fashion.
Maybe Popo looks like the Queen? Maybe....not.
