spayed cat not eating

hi, my name is rhea and my cat just got spayed. she is a tortishell mainecoon but shes a petite cat. very sweet but not very sociable. she got spayed yesterday around noon and i took her home at 2. they said she should be a whole lot better today then what she was yesterday but shes not any different really. she can barely move and when she does, she wabbles and falls like shes doped up still. she hasnt touched her food or water yet. ive been leaving her be to rest but im so worried about her. they said to leave her in a small dark room so ive put her and everything she needs in my closet. i have a huge closet so she has plenty of room. i guess my question is, am i doing everything i can for her? and when can i expect her to be the same again? :( and when should she be eating again?? thanks so much!

yes some times it can take a few days for the anesthetic to fully wear off so it is not that surprising that she is still a little sore and wobbly.

Yes you are doing everything you can for her. She needs rest and quiet and easy access to her litter tray and water bowl.

As for eating she may not feel upto anything much for a few days. if she is no better by the third day then call your vet and ask for their advice, they may want to see her again or they may want you to wait another day or so.

Don't worry i'm the same after my cats have an operation, it can be very worrying i know.

best wishes kate
