How long does a cat need to be confined after spaying?


Answer by  kittylove (33)

The surgery requires your cat to be asleep, so it will act very drugged for about 24 hours after waking up. Side affects can include nausea, yowling and acting strange. Keep your cat inside and, if possible, if a comfy cat bed or box until it can move normally and without pain once the drugs wear off.

For male cats, not long-- just until they stop being loopy from the medicine. Female cats may feel sore for a few days, and shouldn't play because of the stitches.

If the cat is inside she doesn't need to be confined. Don't let her outside for at least two days, ideally keep her inside until the incision is healed.

Your kitty needs to be confined to an area where she will not jump or run around until her operation site has begun to heal (3-4 days). She needs to stay inside until her sutures are removed (8-10 days)
