Most likely from the anesthetic and/or pain meds, but I agree that a quick chat with a vet might help ease your mind. Is the morphine called Buprenex (aka buprenorphine?) It can make cats feel weird, and therefore contributing to Tig not wanting to move around much until he gets used to it.

As for something to put around his neck to hold the tube, you might be able to get a type of surgical stocking from the vet that can be cut to fit like a turtle-neck sweater (with holes for the front legs). Similar to this link, but the vet should provide it for free: http://www.amazon.com/Comfy-After-Su.../dp/B00BTTHNY2

Smooches and good vibes for Tig.
