I think that because they are young, and because I played with the kitties everyday, that is why they have recovered so well. My advice is just keep them moving after they get over the harder parts of the surgery. (I wrote this on Chloe's page, too)

I recently took the kitties to the vet to get their second set of annual shots. The vets were amazed at how well they are doing (as said on Chloe's page). Fiona has been at the correct weight with healthy muscle build. Even though she is a little bit smaller than Chloe (a little overweight), she is still the boss. If Chloe is out of line, or eating when she isn't supposed to, Fiona pops her on the head. I wish I could do that to some people. She has never been skittish, but she is more affectionate than she used to be. Her purr is VERY deep. I feel flattered.
Lately, she has been keeping me up at night. I need to work her out with play before bed. When I don't pay attention to her, or I ignore her, she does things to catch my attention. I will be in my bed, and she sits on the keyboard of my desktop (it makes an 'awesome' noise), or fans/paws at paper on my desk. There are scratchers in my room that she uses. There is a tall kitty condo and a 'window seat'. She just knows how to grab my attention. I have had to kick the girls out of my room at night.

Fiona used to be the bigger of the two cats, but has lost weight/muscle mass since her surgery. She is slowly building her weight back, but you would never know by the way she struts her alpha status. She bosses Chloe around, monitoring how much Chloe eats, scratching around the dishes to leave her scent. My guilty pleasure is laughing when Fiona pops Chloe on the head. Chloe is bigger and could flatten her like a pancake, but she is not the Alpha. I find the pecking order of the animal kingdom curious.
I also found out that Fiona has asthma. I have it too, but I haven't had my humidifiers going and the pollen/mold count is HUGE where I live. i need to get those going again. I am supposed to watch her, and if it gets worse, get some kitty prednisone. While she is still a little bony, it is sad to see this big footed-yet smaller/thinner cat cough.
She was SO angry/sore from her surgery, but now that she is feeling better, I get mauled. If she could technically hold my face down and lay on my neck all day, she would. I laugh, and it is nice to hold her again, or have her seek me out.
