Nancy, I can say 100% that you did the right thing. I know how terrible you feel when you have to take your cats to the vet, i'm the same. But taking them to the vets is the best thing for them always, they don't know it but you are providing the best care for them. Too many people don't take their cats to the vet and I can't bare the thought of the suffering.
Having cats neutered is not just to stop un wanted kittens from being born but it also helps to make your cats less aggressive, less frustrated and even has some health benefits too.
I have two new kittens myself and they are both neutered and they are just fantastic. As for how long after surgery will they get back to their old selves well I would say three or fours days really.they may still be a little sore at the moment and the anaesthetic can take a few days to completely get out of their system. So don't worry (cats can pick up on your worry and this can make them scared and act strangely) be your normal self , give them space and time to recover and I'm sure that given a few more days they will be returning back to their old selves.
best wishes Kate
