We had our cat neutered this morning (about 12h ago), we were told to keep the collar on her at all times, however as she ‘sobered up’, she did everything to take it off and managed it every time. She stayed alone in the room for around 10 minutes and when we came back I saw her licking/biting (not sure) at the stitches. She seemed to bleed just a little bit (just about a few drops), but I’m worried she might have hurt herself. I’m not sure how much I should be stressing about it, do you guys think it looks like it should? She seems to have left it alone now and occasionally just licks a little bit on her skin and around the stitches (she loves grooming herself). Should we try and attach the collar back on and secure it in some way or just leave her to it? I will most definitely be phoning the vet that performed the surgery first thing tomorrow, but doubt I will be able to sleep tonight not knowing if she’s ok. Please advice?
