My bitty kitton is recovering well from her spay... well, she will continue to recover well if she will just stop climbing on things for a bit!
The first day she did great. I think it was in part that she was hopped up on pain medication, and so was a bit sleepy, but she merely alternated between sleeping on my lap and on her kitten bed. She is incredibly easy to pill and to give oral syringe meds too, unlike her predecessor. She is also very adorable in her little suitical recovery suit!
We bought this item from Amazon, but you can also get it at popular pet shopping sites like Chewey. Siada does NOT do well with a Collar of Shame (even a soft one), but wears her harness well so we opted to try this. So far, it is great. She did get the snaps undone yesterday, but I refastened them and so far it is fine. I plan to take it off of her tonight, but it definitely kept her from worrying at the incision, even if it makes her walk like John Wayne.
Day 3 Post-Op did not go as smoothly as the previous ones. She is now wanting to run, climb and play. I am hoping I can keep her somewhat calm for a few more days at least, but she is being exceptionally feisty.
