Since I wasn't around when this happened, I can't really say. She does wear 
a collar most of the time, and she does occasionally lose it. It's a fabric 
collar with a bit of elastic in it, and it's quite loose, so I don't think 
it very likely to be the cause but I suppose not impossible. The vet's 
theory was that she had been cut on a wire trying to climb through a gap in 
a fence, but by the time he saw her it was hard to tell for sure.

Liki has a range of unexpected responses to medication, such as vomiting 
when we give her eardrops. So I try to leave her alone as much as possible.
