My 5-month-old kitten was spayed on Monday. I haven't had a cat spayed in 6 or 7 years, and the surgery is quite different now. She doesn't have any visible sutures, just a spot that looks a bit like a large belly-button. We didn't get great after-care information from the clinic - the receptionist was shouting general instructions to the whole waiting room like a drill sergeant. Anyway - of course kitty wants to lick the spot, so she's wearing a cone collar, and it's driving her (and consequently, me) crazy. The shouty lady said "2 weeks" for the collar, but I'm wondering if anyone that's been through this recently knows whether 2 weeks is really required with this internal-sutures surgery?
