You can buy an inflatable collar which you put on first then put the 'lampshade' collar on your cat.  This brings the 'lampshade' further up the neck so when the cat turns to lick the wound his head is quite far down the 'lampshade'.  I hope this makes sense - we used it for our lurcher who had a leg wound but he also has a very long neck so he could reach the wound.  Anyway we ended up putting two inflatable collars on him then the 'lampshade' poor guy but the wound healed quickly which is the main thing.  Pets At Home sell the inflatable collars but your vet will probably sell you one.
