You can laugh at me but it was better to have Huckster home where I could see him and know he was ok. Seems like kitties go home quicker than pups. 

Please, please, please just make sure you have adequate pain meds right there for you when you take him home. That anesthesia and whatever injectable meds will wear off after 3 to 4 days. If you keep him medicated before that happens it helps a lot. 

I was fortunate, my husband is retired so even while I was at work he was home. I have seen a lot of people take at least a long weekend to make sure they are ok and in a secure place that they cannot rip out sutures or staples while unattended.

You got a look at Huckleberry’s crate, it is a large dog crate that we had when we adopted Mitchell. I would go with something like that in a separate room in the  house where he can have quiet time to rest and recover. I tried blocking under the bed, but I was not lucky enough to have boxes and he wormed through the bedding like an ant lol. We ended up taking the bed frame off and just had the box spring and mattress on the floor when he was good enough to venture out and stretch.

Hugs,

Jackie, David, Mitchell, Andy Oscar, and the coolest feral tripawd kitty Huckleberry

I am making a list of things to ask and remember the day of… pain meds is at the top of it- especially because he is having it done on weds and that 3-4 day range of wearing off lands right over the weekend, just in time for the weekend when the vet is not in! I don’t know about you but we are always graced with the pleasure of needing a vet on Saturday night or Sunday when the vet isn’t open and end up at the very expensive 24 hour emergency vet a few towns over lol. Hopefully we can avoid that! I also already ordered him a soft cone of shame , it seemed more comfortable than the plastic one they would send him home in. Im just hoping he isn’t a Houdini kitty!

As for recovery, my Elvis totally exists in two rooms of the house, the living room and laundry room (and only because his litter box is there)… have I mentioned how lazy is? Well, lazy and wants to be the center of attention. I have never met a cat before, and I have had many, that wants human attention as much as him. He is always on his one spot of the couch where he knows he will get talked to an pet constantly. He likes his voice heard and leaves no question as to what he wants because of that! Because of this I wanted him to be able to recover in the place he feels most comfortable so I ordered a play yard that could fit a litter box, his favorite blankets, and his food all while keeping him safe until he is ready to venture out of that area. Luckily, I do not have to worry about him wanting to burrow under the bed or blankets, that is totally not him (but is absolutely how his brother would be if the situation was reversed)!

Our last few nights of having four legs (as the tears are pouring).

What a sweet looking duo. Just remember, when the leg goes so will the pain. You’ll have some recovery to deal with, but you are all over it. 

What you said about when the surgery falls and the vet being out on the weekend it’s exactly some of what happened to us, you are preparing perfectly, you’ve got this! ❤️

Hang in there 😉

Jackie, David, Mitchell, Andy Oscar, and the coolest feral tripawd kitty Huckleberry

Thanks for your help!
