Poor Baby Kitty

Baby Kitty finally got spayed today (she is 9 months old). And she is NOT happy... poor thing. We just got home about 2 hours ago and she is stumbling around looking pathetic. I feel bad for her but there's nothing I can do for now! I tried to lay her down in her bed and she just growled at me. She has just been sitting in one spot staring at the wall since then. What a little druggie (: And she has one of those ecollars so that ought to be fun. i went through this with Sophie and I had to clean poop off the edge of the cone everyday. And Sophie is quite intelligent... Baby Kitty a little less intelligent (: so it should be a fun week....

Here she is:

I sure hope so. She sure is acting different than Sophie did but I guess it affects them all differently. She is still creeping around, not making a sound except an occasional hiss at nothing. She is acting so out of it the other cats don't recognize her and are both hissing at her and acting scared? Is this normal? I got the other two fixed at the same time so I don't know. Also, her eyes are really watery. What is that from?

The other cats can't smell baby kitty's scent because of all the hospital smells so they don't recognize her. Take some bedding they all use and rub it all over baby kitty to help with this, it should do the trick. As for the watery eyes, we have to put lubricating ointment in their eyes while they are under anesthesia as they don't blink and their eyes could dry out.

Thank you so much for the info Kobster. My bf guessed that about the ointment but I wanted to check. I think the other cats are just confused. They know its her (or they thought so initially). Sophie tried playing with her but she is acting so weird and I didn't think about the smell. So now they are like "is it her, is it not her?" LOL. It makes sense about the smell tho thanks, I will try that.

Poor little thing!! Feel better soon!!

Our vet keeps female kitties over night so they're usually in a little better mood when you pick them up the next day. I've always waited until the very end of the day to pick them up because I want to make sure EVERYTHING'S OK with them. I was wondering if any others did that?

Hmm, I dont know both females I dropped off in the morning and picked up in the afternoon. She could have used staying longer. She was OUT OF IT big time way more than when Sophie was spayed... and is only now barely starting to act "normal". I think because she was finally allowed some food!!

Poor baby. It's normal for the other kitties to hiss at her. I have two in e-collars right now. It's no fun. I feel for you. Kaley wouldn't even come downstairs for 2 days after Bradley came home from the vets and the smell wore off. She was that freaked out. When she did come down she was even hissing at Hunter. It might be helpful to keep her in a quiet room without things to jump on for a while away from the other kitties so they don't stress her out even further. Hope she feels better soon.

I think that's definitely the case about her eyes watering. I wish someone had told me that when they first anesthetized Rookie......I got alarmed, called back, and went over to get some eye drops. Oh sure, like you're going to get eye drops into a cat.

Let us know how she's doing.....
