Cat choking...please help
Just to give a little background, I recently bought a female siamese kitten from Jim-and-Di Siamese and this past Tuesday I had her spayed - routine stuff. Of course, she's picked out all but one of her stitches but there's no swelling or bleeding so she's OK there.
Her appetite was very slow to come back so after a day and a half with no real signs that she was eating very much at all I started her on baby food although now she's eating her normal stuff in addition (she gets Solid Gold canned and dry with Seameal mixed in) but here's where my concern lies. Now, each time she either drinks water or eats, she coughs/wheezes/gags for a couple of minutes afterwards. I know that anesthetic gases could have caused some irritation in her lungs as could the tracheal tube have also irritated her little throat. The vet doesn't seem too concerned as of yet, but I'm paranoid so I thought I'd come here to see if anyone else had either seen or heard of anything similar. She's not quite her old self yet (total spaz) but she's jumping onto and off of things and running through the house so I'd guess I could rule out any serious respiratory infection............any thoughts?
