Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you today. I do apologize that your question was not answered before. Different experts come online at various times; I just came online, read about your wee one’s situation, and wanted to help. If she has just had an anaesthesia for spaying; then staggering isn't unexpected. Some cats do come around from the anaesthesia slower then others and we can often see wobbliness as you have reported. Often we do just need to rest them in a small room or their cat kennel so they can settle and sleep the drugs off. Most cats are back to normal within 24 hours (some taking a bit longer) but we'd not be surprised to see this at this point. Of course if it lingers >36 hours, we may need to have her vet put her onto IV fluids to flush the drugs out quicker for her. Please take care,Dr. B. -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------If you have any other questions, please ask me – I’ll be happy to respond. **Afterwards, please don’t forget to rate my service by clicking on the "Rate my Expert' button at the top of the page.
