Just got our cat fixed 2 days ago. The vet says I have to take her back in in 10-14 days to get the stitches out. We paid $16 for a cone to put on her head because she licks/chews at the stitches. I've been keeping her in the basement (because DH is VERY allergic) in a little kennel and during the day I let her roam the basement. I showed her the litter box and when DH came home tonight and I was pleased to report she had pee'd and poo'd. I'm pregnant so that also meant he had to change the litter/get rid of the poo. Well he let her back out & took off her cone. I think it's too early... any of you have an outside cat who was fixed? How long after getting fixed is it OK to let 'em back out? I'm worried she'll jump around & rip her wound open again.

It really just depends on the vet ans what their preference is.
