Can you sew?   Get a little ribbon i took some sewed it onto the ends of each side of the bandana.  I think it was like 1/2 inch wide.  then get some velcro and sew that onto the ribbon.  that is an extension.  Worked for Sassy and it didn't choke her :)


By the way loved the video of Hannah.  LOL.  poor girl  she wouldn't even look at her lawn mower

Maybe she could use it as a head scarf?! Nah, I like Michelle's idea.

The lawnmower IS scary by the way. That thing can chop off a leg like nobody's business!

It's better to hop on three legs than to limp on four.™

OK, I think these bandanas need to start coming in sizes, because Happy Hannah is choking and Jill's looks like a cape!!!

Jill is a 9-year-old tuxedo kitty. She was diagnosed with Osteosarcoma in June 2012 on her toe in her right hind leg. Her leg was amputated on 12/12/12 and she completed four rounds of chemo (2 of Carbo, 2 of Doxy) in April 2013.

Making fun of poor Hannah!!! Those beautiful eyes just suck you in and I just want to come out there and hug her (a lot)!!

Don't worry Hannah - Mom will make it bigger and you look absolutely stunning in pink!! That mean old lawn mower will need to be mulched!

Perhaps the scarf/capelet is protecting H Hannah from the big mutant lawnmower.  She has her back turned in confidence that Tripawds pink will keep her safe.

An extension is a good idea. Although I like the babushka idea, too.  Just don't try it at home...there are limits.

Oh my Gosh!! Poor Hannah! I am falling more and more in love with the girl. The scarf is clearly a problem! I wanted to what she would do after you take it off.


And I love your accent. hehehe...
