I have two kittens that are now almost 4 months old. They were
spayed and neutered on Monday of this week. I was told to keep them
quiet by the vet for a day or two. I found that their playfulness was
somewhat limited when I brought them home on the first day. But I
could not keep them from leaping up on things they usually do and
chasing after each other. After a few attempts at keeping them
quiet, I decided that they must feel well enough to play. On the
second day after surgery, both seemed just about back to their normal
selves. It is utterly amazing how fast they recuperated from their
surgery. This is especially true for my little female kitten. She
underwent major surgery. How is it possible for cats to recuperate
so easily?? In my thoughts about their recovery period, I just
imagined how it is for a human after such surgery. We would be
taking things pretty gingerly for quite some time after such trauma.
Today is day three and they are doing great.
