Let's not forget that cats are great fun to watch as the effects of the anesthesia subsides.
We had our two girls fixed, each about a month apart. The first one was really sedate, but couldn't stand for more than five seconds before falling over on her side.
The second (who we thought would be even more docile) was somewhat underweight, so the anesthesia had a VERY negative effect on her. To use the doctor's actual verbiage, she was, "On a REALLY bad trip." We took her home, hoping for the best.
For nearly two days, she ran at top speed in circles, sometimes into appliances, thanks to the drug-induced hallucinations. She actually crammed herself beneath a dresser for 12 hours, hissing and spitting at anyone who walked by!
She's back to normal now, thankfully...but it was really weird to see how the drugs radically affected her.
