    Please help!

    My 6 month female kittens got spayed today and the vet advised we keep them calm and they will sleep for 24/48 hours. But the minute I brought them home they started acting hyper and getting zoomies. I tried putting them in their carriers. They bounce about like rabbits. I put them in separate rooms but I can’t keep and eye on them both and they will literally jump on anything *windowsills, any furniture etc.
    I’m so stressed, I don’t want them to get hurt or damage their stitches but they won’t calm down!
    What do I do?

    It's almost certainly a reaction to the anesthetic used, and it's actually quite common. Leave them together in a small room ideally without too much furniture. They will settle down over night and most likely will be back to their normal selves tomorrow morning.

    Honestly the "kittens will be sleepy after neutering" story is a fake :Hilarious
    It almost never happens!

    Yep... I had the same problem with Andre after his neuter. He was starving and hyper... the instruction leaflet from the vet only talked about them being quiet and how to encourage them to eat (not exactly the problems I had). I have to say he was a bit quiet for the two days that followed.

    good luck x
