7 is home.
She's been to the vet and been spayed. Walking out of there this morning, I was almost in tears - not usual for me with a pet or even a human for something so routine.
But all things considered, I suppose it makes sense.
She's home, she's sleeping in front of the fire, but she's been around the room and jumped in and out of her boxes (she has a collection of cardboard boxes to play in...) and all seems well. The wound is very small with no visible stitches, and a very kind friend is swinging by the vet's tonight to pick up the specially bland food I forgot to bring home.
Nice to hear everything went well.
I am always in awe of pet's resilience to such operations Well done Seven and you Janet .
Well, she's had three lots (four, if you count the one she had at the vet's) of small doses of the very bland food from the vet, and wolfed it down
She's been jumping in and out of boxes and even onto the back of my chair (!!) and has spent the last five minutes playing with the cat box!
(I leave it out every so often so she gets used to seeing it. This morning she went right into it, curious as to what it was like inside, I suppose... a lot easier than wrestling her into it!).
Why is the bland food needed?
She's just had fairly invasive surgery, along with an anaesthetic.
Bland food is needed to ensure she doesn't get sick.
On this one,I'll go with the vet.
(And no, it didn't cost any extra, it was included in the price of the op - I could buy more of it if I wanted to, but the vet said it was unlikely to be needed).
We had ours done when they were six months old, and I remember the female after a few of days or so, (maybe longer, I can't remember) she kept
pulling at her stitches with her teeth...! Frightened us to death the first time we saw her do it, and TBH, pretty much every time we saw it after
She's always been a headcase! The Vet did a good job though, because it withstood her biting and pulling, thankfully!
Don't be surprised if 7 thinks she's a kitten again, not that she's much beyond that anyway. Our cats all did when they were "chopped".
Well, she's behaving pretty much as normal - still sleeping a bit more than usual but otherwise, she's fine, as far as I can see!
I've heard there are some cats, of whom it would be hard to tell if they were sleeping more.
I always fert when one of my baby’s got to have a op, specialy when their being sprayed, as I lost one of my cats on the operation table some years ago glad to hear Seven doing well, Janet
