This week's Photo Hunter's Theme is "flexible". Here is Obi wearing a flexible e-collar after his penile urethrostomy several years ago. This collar flexes outward like a rigid e-collar, or flattens against the body as Obi was modeling for us. Because of it's length, he was unable to groom his privates, which would have caused scar tissue buildup after the surgery and that could have caused new urinary tract blockages. After three weeks of wearing the collar, and lots of medicines, he was all healed. He is still prone to bladder infections though, particularly when he is over-stressed. The V-E-T says he is a "sensitive kitty".
