can someone please tell me why my instructions say I must keep my now neutered cat away from my (still) unspayed female for 30 days?

(I thought once he was snipped, all would be fine - after he healed). I am going to schedule a surgery for her, too. But vets here are super backed up - frankly, it's lucky we have a vet (there are waiting lists for vets - some that won't even put you on the list it's so long).

well, maybe some left over testosterone?? maybe just following standard procedure which for a human male is:
Refrain from intercourse/ejaculation for one week. Ejaculation may cause some discomfort in the groin and testicles until the tissues heal. You may return to work and resume normal, non-strenuous activity in about two days or 48 hours.

seem to be enough trouble finding a vet. wouldn't want the little guy to rupture his stitches in his last throws of ectasy. ?? otherwise, i don't know. I kept the street cats inside for the night and released them in the morning to where i got them. that was the recomended procedure - even for the females, whose surgery was more invasive so they knew they had to be careful.

jan @jan https://www.millplainvet.com/site/blog/2022/02/28/male-cat-neutering-recovery-behavior#:~:text=It%20takes%20approximately%2024%20to,recover%20completely%20after%20being%20neutered.

the vet appears to be way overly cautious. maybe because it's so hard to get into a vet? have done lots of them with Cat Welfare in Columbus, ohio. never had a problem with any of them. and turned them back out after resting the night after the procedure. if you have a large community cat population, which you probably don't where you are, you might ask to get female ear tipped, if that doesn't bother you. there were cases in columbus that i heard about where people who let their kitties outside, though pampered and cared for by private vets, got picked up by do gooders looking for cats without the ear tip. Who then took them to Cat Welfare for spaying/neutering. at least that's what they thought happened because the cat would reappear again in a day or two. i had one tattoed instead of ear tipping and since most of the kitties were black, got it mixed up, and she went back to the vet. they didn't have to do her of course, after shaving and saw the tat.

no, i didn't "steal" people's pets. had enough in my own area to take care of and knew where they came from, the infamous colony.

Finally taking my car in today to get an estimate for the stolen catalytic converter. I had to drive my car 90 minutes round trip yesterday to go to the dentist. Sure was loud. Driving the city streets people were looking at my car. So embarrassing.
