Hello everyone i have two female cats i first got them and raised them as kittens in 2007. I never had them spayed because i was always of afraid that something might happen to them during the spaying. But now they howl and cry and are very much in heat so last week i made them a appointment. They are going to the vet tomorrow to be spayed. They have to spend the night at the vet and i am a little sad/scarebut i know it's the best thing for them. At least i think i am doing the right thing i guess it's just that i'll miss them. I decided to have this done because i read where that they could possibly have cancer if it isn't done and because of all the howling and behavior issues. They fight constantly all the time so yes i will be so glad when it's over and when they are back home. I am also wondering if they will act differently when they return like will they be sore, tired etc.. Or if there will be certain things that i have to do or not do. They are currently on Meow Mix the dry cat food but i also have some soft Meow mix as well. They never go outside they are in door cats they may sit in the window but they never go out. Does anyone have any advice for me or anything?
