You would be better off putting socks on her (her nails need to still be short) and attaching those with medical tape.
Her hating the cone isnt the end of the world. Just make sure its not rubbing the wound. Shes going to have to get over it. You can try and find soft cones in the meantime or look at clothing type options that would cover the area.
Ok I tried the sock method but I didn't use any tape and it seems to be working and I didn't make it too tight only enough to cover the wound. Thank you for everyone's suggestions, if u have any other suggestions please tell me
