Default Kerry's had her surgery

So Kerry was spayed last Friday, and was bright-eyed and alert and
bouncy when I picked her up mid-afternoon. I'm trying to keep her quiet
and out of the room with the highest furniture/perches except when I'm
there, as per the vet's instructions. The vet also recommended a cone
collar, which I managed to get on twice. The first time she got it off
almost instantly, and I thought the contortions she went through weren't
good for her. I tried again a day or so later, adjusting it a bit
tighter. It stayed on a little longer, but she still got it off and I
haven't found it yet. Well, she's not licking the incision, at least!

I was a bit surprised to find her belly shaved and quite a good-sized
incision there. Last time I had a cat spayed, the vet shaved a little
patch from one side and put the incision there. I googled, of course
(what did we do before google?) and found out that which choice is made
depends on the vet's training, preference and often location - the belly
incision being more common in North America, where I am, and the side
one more common in the UK.

It sounds as though she's doing very well, both physically and mentally.
Smart of her to hide the cone.

Clever cat, hiding the collar so you can't put it on again. Purrs for it
to heal quickly.

Sounds like Kerry is handling it just fine.

I only had to use a cone with Persia (RB 2014) once. That was when she
was allergic to tapazole (or the vet equivalent) for hyperthyroid and
was chewing the fur off her paws. She went nuts trying to get it off
but had no luck. The medication was out of her system in a couple of days.

I'm thrilled to hear Kerry is doing well.
