Does girlcat need to be taken to vet?

Girlcat was spayed about 3 weeks ago and I've just noticed that she appears to have something that looks like a piece of knotted string where the site is. Have included a pic but not sure how clear it is. Does she need to go back to vet? Site looks healed apart from this and she's had no problems.

It probably is a bit of knotted string. Most spays are done with dissolvable internal stitches, but sometimes you see a bit on the outside. It will all dissolve in time.

I had a small bit of string hanging out my arm after I had surgery to fix the fractures. It just fell off one day.
I'm no expert but the wound looks good and well healed. If you're worried you could send the vets that photo to ask their opinion.

Give the vet a rig in the morning, they will be able to let you know if it’s an issue, or if it can be cut off. I would worry hat my kitten would pull at it and hurt herself

A ring - not a rig, that wouldn’t help

It's just a bit of suture material, trim it down and it will dissolve in time

Thanks all. You can tell the newbie cat owner! She seems fine and isn't pulling at it. Her CP foster mum works at the vets so I'll text her the pic in the morning and see what she thinks. Doesn't sound like it's a bit problem though. It just freaked me when I saw it.
