I've recently realised that I need to rearrange my two male cats neutering.
The best time would be during some holiday I already have booked off from work, but shortly after that (1-2 days) my wife and I are going away for three days with only my brother-in-law to look after them.
My BIL has not got a lot of cat experience, but has cat sat for us before.
I've read that cats will be groggy and drowsy after the surgery (which is fine) but that it will take ~2 weeks for the wounds to heal. Some websites 12 day the cats need to be supervised during this time so that they don't lick it play fight and open the wounds.
Our boys do scrap a little while we're around (though very little) but we don't know what they get up to when we're out. Nothing violent at all.
They're both around 6 months of age, and male. We can supervise them the day is the surgery and some of the day after for certain.
How's much supervision will they most likely need, and what's the worst case scenario?
