Hi, I have just dropped my 6 month old cats, boy and girl, off to be spayed/castrated. They are brother and sister, I thought it best to get them done at the same time so they were less playful and wouldnt aggrovate eachother,
I also have a very playful puppy that they run about with.
Does anyone have any advice on how i can give my cats the best care?
Would i need to seperate them from each other or just the other animals?
I have a giant travel dog kennel, would it be a good idea to use that for the cats?
sorry first time kitty owner and only want to do whats best :)
Well, congratulations on your new additions to your family...sounds like you are becoming a great "kitty mommy already. Spaying and neutering are a must in today's world. Your kitties should do fine...the female might want a little alone the first day or two and the rambunctious puppy play time should be toned down for a few days to gives the kitties a chance to heal well. After all, they did have surgery. What are your kitties names? And do you have pictures to share?
I'm sure the vet's office will give you post op instructions when you pick them up. At a young age they typically heal very quickly. Just check the incisions the first couple of days to make sure it doesn't become infected. Keep them from licking at it excessively. You only need to keep them separated or confined if their play generally involves scratching at each other in the area of the incision,
