My kitten just neutered!

My 8 month old kitten was just neutered!
We pick it up tomorrow morning and I have no
idea what to do when it comes home!

I know this is a strange question, but does anyone know what I could
do to help him heal faster?

(P.S. We can not pay for the -ecollar or the pain meds...)

Sauté him with garlic and onions. Best meal you ever had.

Ive had about 8 cats. All of them get neutered and spayed. He'll be a little groggy for any where from a few hours to around a day or so, depending. The vets should already give him a cone to stop him licking at the stitches. He wont need pain meds, the vets will have already given him some ^_^ As for when you get him home, just do everything as normal. No need to worry. Just set him up where he usually sleeps and bob him on his bed until he comes round properly. Dont let him outside untill the stitches have healed. Literally just do everything as normal ^_^ so food and water as normal, but just hold back from keeping him running around or jumping about too much.

Thanks so much!

I did as you said and he seems to be perfectly fine.
VERY hungry, but fine!

Thank you!

It's a perfectly normal things and they heal up really fast. Just don't let him out in a couple of days, and make sure he doesn't lick the "wound" - or whatever to call it - too much.

I've never heard of ANYONE giving pain meds to their cats after being neutered, so I don't think that would be a problem. Just relax and make sure that if something looks strange (stranger then when you picked him up from the vets) contact the vets again.

Thank you!
It has really helped me calm a bit.

I thought I was being a horrible mommy for not getting
the meds...

You won't be giving him pain meds after he's had surgery?

No we didn't give him any.
I felt guilty for not having enough to buy them,
but when we got home he stretched and had a snooze on
his chair.

He seemed fine, just a little groggy from the anesthesia.

It's good that he got some sleep, and if he's eating too, it should be al-right.
