Hello everyone, I just need a little bit of advice. I know nothing is better than just going to the vet and asking, and if there's even a 1% suspicion that she needs to go I'll take her. The only reason I ask for advice is that Missy is still very young, she's almost 14 weeks old and she hasn't had her third round of shots yet. I don't want to unnecessarily stress her and expose her by taking her to the vet if I'm just being a nervous nelly. She'll be home a week tomorrow, and she's really blossomed in that time. She went from being timid and having litterbox troubles, to using it consistently in a matter of days. Today and last night, she's gone back to not using her box. She peed on my husband's hand this morning, and all day shes been peeing infront of her box instead of in it. Yesterday she started suckling me, and has done so today as well, and today shes been sleeping most of the day. I know kittens are growing and sleep a lot, but it's more than the last few days. And shes been very cuddly, staying next to me and in my lap as long as I'm home. She does still eat like a champ though! I've only had her a week so I don't know if this is her growing personality and her litterbox woes are still from the stress and change of coming home, or if maybe there's something more. She was spayed before I brought her home, and was a week out of it. We've still been monitoring her activity, keeping her from licking. We took her to the vet the day after she came home (last thursday) and vet said everything was in order. Today though, a bump near her incision is starting to look red. I have photos: I don't like the look of it, but it's a small bump. I've never seen a spayed cat before so it's hard for me to tell if its normal.
