Can I let the 3 month old kitten out about the house

Hi I've posted here before a couple of times. I had a mom cat spayed who had some issues while I was fostering she and her 2 kittens. So an update, one of the 2 kittens has been adopted. After I decided to adopt mom(Emma) after her spaying, I took her into my vet who I adore for her first exam. I ha...

Re: Separating Kittens from mom

I actually think they were probably hoping I would keep the kittens. I would honestly if I felt I could give them the love and attention they deserve long term. My last kitty Max was a wonderful easy going orange tabby and it was just he and I. He was so easy going and loved being around and sociali...

Re: Separating Kittens from mom

I hear you. I would hold onto them except I won't be home a lot from Oct 1 on which means the kittens will need to stay locked up alone all day in a bedroom and I will also be traveling some overnight, although I have a cat sitter I could use for this. If they were at a point where I could have them...

Separating Kittens from mom

So with Emma better after her spaying and on the mend, I am working on trying to get her babies placed. Oct 1 I must give them up, I will have limited time to spend with them due to a very aggressive work schedule through the holidays. The good part is these babies will have spent 12 full weeks with...

Re: Question on Spaying

So my Emma is feeling close to back to herself today. While she was under the weather I have been letting the kittens have the run of my place. And it's been fun for them. Unfortunately now that mom is better, she's stressing out over them running all over and insists on following them including up ...

Re: Question on Spaying

So update. The vet called me later yesterday to check in. Emma had a slight fever which confirmed to the vet she has an infection. So she wants to give the antibiotics a chance to work. I also mentioned she was not eating or drinking she suggested subcutaneous fluids which should help with the fever...

Re: Question on Spaying

So I don't know. They saw signs she was licking the wound(she had a collar on so) so they prescribed an anti biotic to consume by mouth and some drops to put on the wound. No bleeding and her gums are good. The pain meds were 24 hours. I thought maybe the pain surfaced if she had a 3 day shot = no d...

Re: Question on Spaying

So update after spaying. Emma is not doing well. After 3 days of what seemed like a good recovery she's listless and is moving gingerly today. She won't eat and was growing when I tried to look at her incision. It's obvious she's in pain. I noticed a lump next to the incision so I called the vet and...

Re: Question on Spaying

They did warn me if she was biting and licking the area too much to put one on. I put one on anyway. Just cautious I guess. She is definitely a licker. So it's been 2 days and she wants to be active. Should I just let her roam the house and go down the stairs? Not sure how much she would but she's b...

Re: Question on Spaying

So an update. She's still sleeping non stop almost. But she has eaten and used the litter box. But then sleeping endlessly is not new for cats. They did not send her home with an e-collar or cone, so my neighbor lent me one. She seems so knocked out, it doesn't really even seem to bother her.

Re: Question on Spaying

Thanks for all the feedback Mom wanted to be with the kittens. And they have pretty much left her alone knowing she is not feeling well. It's been almost 24 hours and she's more alert but still obviously recovering. I am guessing the pain shot had side effects also. I'm working hard to get the shelt...

Question on Spaying

Hi I posted a fostering question a little over a week ago and thanks for the advice. I am hanging onto the kittens until they get adopted. One question. The mom cat that I just finished adopting, went into heat while she's still lactating(although the kittens have been weaned) so I assume her milk w...

Fostering Question

Hi I am new here. My name is Kathy and I am a longtime cat owner. My kitty passed a few months back so I decided to foster. I have a momma and 2 kittens who are now around 8 weeks of age. The kittens are close to being fully weaned, but not 100% yet. They will be going back for adoption once they ar...
