Having cats as pets and then spaying them is a need of time for you and then you need to know how to take care of a fresh Spayed Cat. Suppose you have a house full of cats and some of them are male while others are female, If everything remains natural, You are gonna be the one who is gonna be the pet in the house as your house is gonna be filled with kittens roaming around.
This also applies even if you have a single cat, If it’s a female cat well she is living in an independent world, she can hang out with anyone but you are gonna be the one caring for her kittens, not the one she hanging out with, and you cannot stop her. Also, even if she is an indoor cat, she is gonna attract a lot of hungry male cats there. And if you have a male cat, well then you are a bit safe, but not your neighbour’s and their female cats if they are not spayed as well. Your cat is gonna make you a grandfather of well God knows how many kittens. And if your male cat is an indoor cat, well your home isn’t gonna smell very good, as it’s his territory and he can do whatever he wants, anywhere he wants.
So if you have decided to spay your cat, that is beneficial for all around you not just for you.
Here are some basics about your spayed cat’s recovery
First and foremost, keep your cat away from other cats (as they if not spayed well probably gonna laugh at him) and people too, Keep it in a quiet place where it can recover fast and where it will be sitting for the next few days or weeks to take some rest. Keep checking on it don’t leave it alone. Also if you feel your cat is in pain, Give it the pain relieving medicines that your vet has recommended to you, if the pain does not go away contact your vet asap.
Your cat may feel no hunger after the surgery, it is because of the effect of anaesthesia, It’s not a permanent condition and will go away as soon the effect of anaesthesia go away, until then you can try to feed your cat a small quantity of light of food or even your regular food. Try to keep your outdoor can inside the home, as the anaesthesia effect can be prolonged causing more danger for your cat to go outside. There are also other dangers like dogs, other cats, and the most dangerous species Humans. If your cat experiences any other symptoms like not eating even after 24 hours of surgery or vomiting, you should contact your vet.
Another thing you can do to make sure your cat remains safe is;
Monitor your cat’s surgery site
Keeping an eye on your cat’s incision site can help you monitor whether your cat is recovering or not, you should check it daily to get a better idea about the recovery. Don’t bathe your cat almost for 10 to 15 days after the surgery which can cause swelling or irritation on the incision site. Don’t let your cat lick or scratch its surgery site as it can be very dangerous and painful, your vet will recommend you a collar that will prevent your cat from scratching or licking its incision site. Although not all cats will get used to that collar.
If you notice any swelling, redness, or limps around the surgery site, you should contact your vet, the lump is not something to be worried about as long as they are not red, or swollen, causing pain, and discharging any dirty liquid. Pailing skin after the scratching is normal, if your cat is active which is a good sign though, you may also notice some bleeding from the incision site. If you are concerned about your cat’s health after the surgery, contact your vet support and they’ll let you know what’s normal for your cat and what’s not.
