After Surgery and Going Home

  • Your cat should be kept indoors for several days until he/she is strong enough to defend themselves outside again.

  • If your cat has kittens they will need to separated for 7-10 days. Nursing after surgery can be harmful to the mother cat.

  • Isolate your cat from children and other pets. He/She may be more prone to snapping or nipping at other pets, children and adults due to the after-effects of anesthesia. Give your cat space to recover and let them come to you for affection when they are ready. An oversized carrier or crate with a temporary litter box or a small bathroom make for a good recovery area to limit their activity for the week following surgery. Mulitple cats should be separated from each other while recovering from surgery.

  • Your cat does not have external sutures. Male cats do not have any sutures.

  • In female cats, the uterus and ovaries are removed through a small incision in the abdominal wall.

  • In male cats, the scrotum is not removed, only the testicles. Male cats have two incisions, one in each side of the scrotum. Male cats may appear as if they still have testicles. This is normal – the swelling should subside gradually through the recovery period.

  • There is a universally recognized green tattoo on your cats belly that identifies your cat has been spayed or neutered.
