questions on neutereing ans spaying behaviors

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 

i just got my two kittens neutered and spayed. I am having a some concern. I have had cats, but they have been adopted, so i didnt have to deal wit this problem. My male isnt using the litter, the female is, but the male isnt. HE POOPED/DIARRHEA ON MY BED, TWICE!! i am not sure if this is suppose to happen, so can anyone help me.
another thing, how long do i have to leave the ELIZABETHAN COLLAR on them. they hate it, and i dont like it their.

thank you!

If the stitches look good, (no redness, etc) I would put him a room with a litter box until he's more like his pre-op self.

The collars are to keep them from messing with their stitches. Kittens should heal quickly; I'd see how they are doing a few days from now.

The collar might be interfering with where the litter pan is. If its not in a very open space, then maybe that's why he's not using the pan.

Of course, blood where there shouldn't be is always a worry.

Is your vet still open or will you have to make an emergency call?
Definately call and get them in soon, the male too - in case there was some other complication that made him prefer your bed.

I would be getting in touch with the vet asap.
How old are your kittens? I had Blossom done at 5 mths & she pulled a stitch out & had to have a staple. I then bought the eliz. collar but didn't need to use it. My biggest problem with her was keeping her quiet until the stitches came out. I would have thought a male kitten would sail thru the whole process. I've read that very young kittens don't have any bother with their ops. Breeders have them done about 10 weeks b4 they go to their new homes at 12 weeks.

I would not panic at a little blood in the poo. That happens. they were highly stressed and still probably aren't back to their normal selves. I wouldn't rush them to an ER vet unless you are paranoid or something. It will just waste your money. They are stressed, things aren't quite the same and they feel different. Put them in a bathroom or laundry room and keep them quiet for a couple days. they should be fine. Don't panic.

i am worried, and i keep reading articles about this issues.

my kittens are 5 months now, today actually.
ok, a little blood is ok, and what about the diaherra.
is there anything else i should know about the next month?

can they die after the operation, do they change?!? in attitude?!?

sorry for all the questions

Dying isn't likely unless there's a complication, such as infection. You would notice this (incision sites would be red, fever, change in behavior).

Some cats do have behavior change, but that's mature adult cats, not kittens. In the case of adult cats, the hormones telling them to go out and breed are gone. Sometimes it makes female cats more relaxed and playful. Males, it can make less aggressive (to other cats).
Since your kittens don't have these hormones yet, there won't be any noticeable changes.

thank you for the information.

so far, i check their incision, and no red spots, or blood/puss coming up.
well, today, both of them are fine, they dont have diaherra anymore, and they are pooping like before, and in their litter box.

i forgot to ask my vet, but can i clean the incision, with a kitty wipe, becuse my male pooped on it a little, but its not in the incision, but its on the side.... ?!?

Probably a good idea.
