Keeping Kitty Safe And Calm Post-Surgery

Share your tips

In the middle of one of our most hectic weeks of the year, our cat had to have surgery. She's doing great, but it's been fun keeping the cone on her so she doesn't lick the glue that's holding her stitches shut open! It's also been fun keeping her away from the rest of the cats and dogs, some of whom want to help her lick herself clean. Isn't that sweet of them...

Luckily we have the space to set up a room for her, complete with litter box and dishes, but it does mean that she's taken over my office, which is a bit unfortunate while I try to work. She wants to be cuddled constantly, which I love, but it can be distracting. I've also had to stop her from trying to scale heights and wedge behind things, one of which helped her pop that collar right off! It's been six days, and they said she'll need to be kept like this anywhere from 10 to 14, so at least we're halfway there.

What do you do when your cat has to be kept calm and safe post-surgery? Share your tips in the chat!
