I got him home okay (someone picking up their pet lifted him in the car for me and my neighbor lifted him out.) And he was as you guys said, totally out of it. His eyes didn’t even focus when I picked him up. he didn’t look…anything, but I know it was just the after effects of the anesthesia. but it was the saddest part.
But now he’s acting mostly normal, doing a lot of sulking because I won’t take the cone off his head. We have a follow up appointment on Tuesday with our regular vet, hopefully that will be long enough for me to take off the ecollar.
The hardest part is keeping all four of his paws on the floor! He gets really happy first thing in the mornings, and he likes to stand up for no reason in the middle of the family room. But the vet said it was important that he not stand, run, jump, anything, so he’s sulking, because I’m a major party pooper.
So, lastly, I bought him a new bed, and of course, he prefers the floor. The cat, however, is thrilled with the new bed. But she only wants it when Quil seems interested.
P.S. I trimmed his ecollar since this, I just wanted to have Fiance make sure I’d done it right before I cut it.

Awwwww!! He should recover fairly quickly! He’s so adorable, I am so happy you decided to keep him 🙂

Aww he will be alright. It’s hard to keep them still but it’s really necessary to make sure that they don’t hurt themselves. Love the cat in the bed!

Aw poor baby! He will be fine soon 🙂 My dog just got fixed a couple of weeks ago and she was running around playing like a crazy pug within a couple of days!
That cat is seriously hilarious!

@OttawaBride, Oh, so am I. And it turns out we might be in this apartment less time than I thought, so it was REALLY the right decision!
He’s so much fun, and such a ham, I love having him here.

I’m so glad you decided to keep him, too! Good luck with finding a house where he has more space to run around! He’ll be back to running and playing in no time!

Aw poor guy! Look at that face! My dog won’t sleep on his bed unless I tell him to! I can’t understand why he prefers the carpet!! I love that your cat has taken it over. Clearly the cat knows the dog is impaired right now. Maybe that’ll change once the cone is gone, LOL!!
Glad everything is working out! That e-collar is too cute on him! Plus it’s transparent so he can see through it, which will help him not run into things…again, poor guy! LOL

Oh, that cat is the boss ALL THE TIME. When we brought home Quil, she sat on his face and tried to smother him. We were constantly pulling her off of him. She’s a little crazy.
@MightySapphire: You would think that he wouldn’t run into things so bad, wouldn’t you? Nope! He’s a walking disaster these days, knocking things over left and right. Just yesterday he knocked over my whole wedding invitation table and everything went on the floor. Poor baby, he was so scared after he did it, he tried to hide, but he couldn’t fit in his spot with the cone!

lol, mine didn’t understand why he could graze right up against the fence… it kept getting stuck on the fence posts!
So glad to see him fixed, and so glad you kept him! How were the walks going before this?

Poor baby! look at that face! My girl did the same thing…then would keep walking into your legs and not get anywhere because of the collar. So sad!

awww, poor guy! You know, when I got my boy neutered the vet recommended the cone as a last resort because they get so emotional about it … I don’t know if this is something you’d want to do… but our vet told us to put him in some old boxer shorts or rig up an old t-shirt around the area if we found him fussing with it, then if that didn’t work we could use the cone. Luckily we didn’t need to do anything because he wasn’t interested in his stitches at all. Anyway, I hope he has a speedy recovery!
