Separate spayed sister from boisterous brother while we're at work/school?

Little girl was spayed last Friday and is wearing a cute little medivest - all stitches fine, well in herself and happy. From tomorrow we'll be out all day so am worried about boisterous playfighting with her brother. We've been around to stop them the last few days. They'd be more upset if we separated them all day though. What do others think?

Bumping just in case there are any owners with slaying and sibling experience about?

Er...spaying. Thanks, autocorrect, but my kitten is not Buffy. hmm

I’d separate them. They may be unhappy apart but it’s only temporary. You’ll have to separate them a lot longer if she bursts those stitches and has to go back in for more surgery

Well I normally take my kids everywhere with me. 😝

Can you not close her in her own space away from her brother. Surely that's the obvious solution

I think she will be fine. Our middle aged feral was neutered Thursday , by Saturday she was already jumping up onto shelving.

She has been climbing curtains and generally leaping around like an eejit, although we have tried to curtail her antics.

I can - I do think they'd be very upset. It's a long time between 7.30 and 3.30 when ds gets in.

Let them be together. I wouldn't worry about it.

Ok - thanks.

Last Friday? She's practically healed!

Mine had forgotten they had stitches by the following day. No medivests either.
