My cat got fixed last week and I noticed last night that she was licking her stitches so much the area was red. Since it's been a whole week, is this safe/okay for her to do, or should I discourage her from it? She doesn't do it often, it was only the once last night that I've noticed, they don't seem to bother her otherwise.
EDIT: The vet finally answered the phone and told me it should be OK but to keep her from doing it as much as possible anyway. OK yay I feel better now. :)
In other news, what are your plans tonight, TQC? Can I come along? :D
