I just had my 8-month old kitten spayed … and it hasn’t been a very pleasant experience. She slept most of the day yesterday, still woozy from the anesthesia, so she didn’t eat anything or go to the bathroom … couldn’t even stand up by herself. She’s obviously in a lot of pain. She’s wide awake now, but she still won’t eat and won’t get up. I’ve tried to stand her up but she just falls over and starts hissing and screaming. Is this normal? When should she be able to start eating again?
The vet seemed to be good (he graduated from NTU), and he gave me medicine to apply to her wound once a day and extra bandages. She’s also wrapped up quite well to prevent her from licking or knawing at her wound. I have to take her back in 10 days to get the stitches taken out. I’m just worried about her not eating anything or going to the bathroom.
