recently spayed kitty

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
My little Pearl was spayed 5 days ago. She has no fever, the incision site looks fine, but she is walking funny. She draws in like a person who is cold. I have never had a female cat, so I don't know if this is normal. She is eating and is doing everything but playing rough with the 3 boys. They seem to know she is not up to it and are being very sweet to her. Does anyone think I should be concerned?

I'm no expert, but my female cat Fluffy didn't do this when she was spayed, nor any of my other females in the past. I'll leave it up to the experts though

Just to be safe, you may want to discuss this with your vet to get his opinion on the way she is walking. I know male cats recover very quickly from being neutered. I don't know how long it takes a female to recover from being spayed.

In my experience, it depends on the procedure. I havn't seen it much in young kittens, but more with older cats who have had litters of kittens. It seems to be much more extensive with them. I have seen them walk funny and thier tummy is sucked in quite a bit for a week and a half. You might just want to ask your vet for a follow up if she's not walking better by Monday.

Thanks for the input! I have kept a close eye on her and she is walking normally and even running a little when she hears the food bowls rattle. She seems to be healing nicely. She has always been aloof, but ever since I brought her home after her surgery, she has wanted to be petted and has gotten on the couch for a cuddle twice. She never purred much before and now she sounds like a little fuzzy Kenworth. I hope this keeps up, she's just the right size for a lap kitty.

Any kitty is a good lap accessory, no matter what the size I'm glad your kitty is feeling better. My kitty Loco is getting neutered in a few weeks, and I'm hoping all goes well with him.
