Is my cats spay wound healing properly?

Spayed 5 days ago, had 2 days of antibiotics, took them with no problem, has been wearing cone since surgery with exception of supervised eating times, sometimes freaks out (thats just her personality), when she freaks out, a little blood will appear on the wound, but nothing drastic, no excessive bleeding, just a little bit on the wound. Attached is link to pictures of wound resting, and wound after freak out. Please let me know if it looks like it is healing normally, and what else i can do to help healing process along.

If she is agitating the wound it will take longer to heal. Wash and disinfect the area after she opens it, and make sure she keeps her cone on. Does she have dissolving stitches? They may be getting itchy as she heals. If anything looks swollen or infected, then yes, call your vet's office! ^_^
