So Tuesday was my big day! I got spayed! The peeps were worried, they 100% trust the vet who did my surgery but they know all the risks everytime an animals goes under. That morning I was soooooo confused, and hungry because the peeps took away all of our food because of my surgery. I did not like that. They took me to the vets early that morning and (not so) patiently waited for the doctor to call with an update. He gave them a call that afternoon and let them know that I did very well they could come and get me in a few hours.
When they picked me up, the office staff made sure to tell my peeps how much of a trouble maker I was! I didn't mind the vet staff at first but as the day went on (and some of my meds kicked in) I made it clear I was not happy. I became quite the little warrior! When my peeps found out they were a bit shocked, I am their little sweet snuggly Dora Doo,but they could see it. When I am not content I make it clear & I also can hold my own against both of the dogs (who can be bullies). The office staff also said that since I was such a little wild cat that my peeps could take off my bandage on my leg (from the iv). It was a bit funny because my girl works at this animal clinic and talks about me quite a lot and is always gloating about what a great & friendly girl I am. Hehe I didn't do much to hold up to all her talk!
I have been recovering well and got my last dose of pain meds Thursday night. Though the peeps are concerned about something now. On Friday they noticed some redness on my stomach right below my stiches, later that night it turned into more of a bruise. It is now Sunday and it has gotten larger and darker. It doesn't hurt when the peeps touch and I am still actong fine. Is this normal? The peeps aren't sure if it is something they should be more worried about. My girl is going to try and call the vet sometime tomorrow to see what he thinks. But other than that I am just my normal goofy & darling self!

You sure are a cutie. Many purrs all is ok. Do you have a emergency contact number to ring if there are any questions? I know there can be some bruising but for it to be getting better is a question you may want to ask them about.
I would definitely call the vet....You never know....Peace of mind is worth everything. Juliette got spayed at the end of August. We had to put her cat tree on the floor so she wouldn't hurt herself. We were told no jumping for ten days....She is a jumper so it was a challenge. Let us know how Dora fares...
I am so glad you are better DOra. It never hurts to double check with the vet. Better to be safe, and our doc says there are never any silly questions.
Thanks everyone! I called the vet first thing this morning and described it all to him & he said it is fairly normal, and asked if she was eating properly (which she is) and if the area is painful to her (which it is not). He wasn't that worried about it which makes me feel better. I am glad I called though, if I was left without his input I would have been thinking the worst & getting all nervous and worried! Lol!
