Hi guys. So Binky has to wear a coat due to a wound that she won’t leave alone caused by allergies, so after months of medication I have been told she has to wear this, as I always give in, as she is walking like she’s drunk and falling on to her side, The vet said animals are so adaptable and she will get used to it, but am just so soft with this kitty as she my baby!

Awww as much as she hates it, she looks so darling in it! I do believe that she will get used to it eventually, you just have to stick to it and she'll realize she has to keep it on! {}

Awhhh Binky

You can try what I did when I harness trained and they would flop over .

Use some smelly treats , or toy .. something she is highly motivated by.
Hold in front of her , give praise even a word or phrase Like let’s go
..as soon as she moves an inch give treat and praise ..

Worked like magic with my bengals years ago

Hugs n head smooches!
Keep us updated !

Sending healing vibes. Two of my crew had to wear a jumper for a while after neutering. They hated it and in the beginning they couldn't walk, falling sidewards and walking backwards. But after a say or 2 they were used to it.

She looks super cute in her pink dress!

Hiya love !
Tell Binky that Mr Bagins says she looks just like a fashion icon in her little coat ! He went as far as to say to me and his sisters that Binky could very well be a super model !!! And Cleo and Nailah just adore the colour and want to know where she shops !

Cleo always wore clothes and she didn’t mind I put her in pretty dresses and casual tops . She didn’t mind at all
Then the Bagster arrived he scragged her around until he had pulled off her what ever she was wearing !
I tried to put top on him ! No way no how was he having it ! Not now not ever !
So I have a black bin bag full of a few used but loads of unused brand new with tags tops dresses etc
I do think she will get used to it try taking her mind off it by playing with her when you first put it on her see if that helps
Xxx❤❤❤❤Xxx

This morning we woke to a chilly house as the temp dropped through the night. We just got Minerva on Sunday and havent been able to go wardrobe shopping yet so I seen a pin a while back about using a sock to make a kitten sweater and after about 5 mins and 3 fittings I was quite pleased with my results! My husband laughed, said she looked like a bag lady but guess who wasnt shivering while eating her breakfast? Shove it, dear lmao, thats a win. But yes, about an hour after I put it on her she wasnt walking like she’d been tranked anymore so my winning smile just got bigger ;)
