Oh, I hate these situations! It can be so difficult to thwart the intentions of a cat. The t-shirt is a good idea, in some cases an infant or baby t-shirt works well and your cat may not be able to wiggle out of it. You could also ask your veterinarian if they have a creative way to bandage the incision. In some cases, "soft paws" can help. These are little plastic coverings that get glued over the nails; they wont prevent your cat from scratching but will prevent the damage she does.

From what you've said, your veterinarian or their staff may have to help you but those on. If the scratching continues, you may also want to have the incision looked at; in some cases, cats will really go after it if it is uncomfortable for them and sometimes removing a suture or two to relieve tension or using pain medication can help. Hope she heals quickly and I'm so glad to hear that the lesion was benign!
