They’ll be fine! The neck cone is only needed if they start licking their incision site too much.

I foster kittens all the time and most of them don’t even seem to notice they’ve been spayed or neutered. They come home the same day and may be a bit groggy, but play just the same.

Castration really isn’t too big of deal (but try telling that to a guy!), it’s a very straightforward minor surgery and complications are rare.

Neutering a kitten takes 2-3 minutes, at the absolute maximum. I never had an issue with a male cat licking his incision site. However, your vet will probably recommend that you keep an eye on them both, and bust out the cone of shame if either one is paying an excessive amount of attention to his scrotum.

Oh, are these the now ringworm free kittens? I’ve followed their story since they were born so wishing them good luck tomorrow.

Neutering is a lot easier than spaying. I think my male cat stayed there for about 4-5 hours. The extra time is for the anesthesia to wear off so they’re not super groggy and freaked out when they come home. I was told that he would be tired and wouldn’t have much of an appetite that day, but he ran for his food bowl as soon as we got home. Nothing curbs that boy’s appetite.

Mine got theirs chopped off with a laser. It heals much faster than typical stitches style ones and they had no cone on day two. Day one they just cuddled and slept and didn’t even seem phased. A little wobbly on the legs, though. They hated their cones because they couldn’t get into their favorite spots with them. So i took the cones off and supervised them.

yay for no ringworm!!!

(mine didn’t have pain meds either)

When I took my kitten in to get neutered the pain meds they gave him affected him more than the actual surgery.  He was sleepy, dopey, sort of stumbling around, nothing like his usual self.  After a few hours the meds wore off and he was back to 100%.
