Problem one: Where they put the bandages Izzy now has matted hair

Re: Izzy is home!

I'm glad she's home and the surgery went well. What type surgery was it?

As far as your complaints go...I'd say they are pretty minimal.
If Izzy is long haired, its gonna get ruffled/matted if it get covered up. The alternative would be to shave all the hair off where the bandage would be. Would that have been more acceptable to you? The food/eating should be a non-issue. I really don't think you can blame the vets for her acting like she starved when she ate at home. Many cats who spend time at the vets do not eat, drink or use the litterbox because everything is so unfamiliar and they are nervous/scared. At home, they are happy to be comfortable in their familiar surroundings.
She sounds like she is very happy to be back home with you.

Spay and declaw.

How can I get the matt off? If I trim it with scissors will it untangle?

Re: Izzy is home!

Where is the mat?
I would only try to lightly brush it. Cutting a mat with scissors isn't a good idea because it is WAY TOO EASY to pull the hair up, which in turn pulls the skin up beneath it and into the path of the scissors. You could shake some cornstarch into the mat, work it in with your fingers and then try to lightly brush it. The cornstarch powder will help make the hair a little slippery and if she licks the cornstarch it won't harm her.
