My cat was hit by a car and ended up with a fractured pelvis which was pinned in an operation 4 weeks ago. She has been quite good being caged in for the 4 weeks but yesterday she managed to get free from it, and we also discovered she has been pulling her fur out. We have managed to erect something she cant get out of, but im worried she is making herself very sore by pulling her fur out. Would it be really bad to let her out 2 weeks early, coz she is clearly ok to be able to escape like she has???
Your vet has given you advice for a good reason. It would be silly to undo all the good work that is done by letting her out. Although she feels better it does not mean that the healing is strong enough for her to be doing the things she wants to do. If you have any questions best to talk to your vet.
we didnt keep put of a cage, but he was in our spare room. beside himself. we did let him out after a certain time but i checked with the vet and his view was that he may hurt himself more trying to get out than he would by jumping. check with your vet though.
