Do you need shredded paper for the litter box after spaying? Thanks for your help.

I don't think so, at least they didn't recommend it for my cat. My parents' cat did, but I think that had more to do with the fact that they also had her declawed at the same time.

Default ask

ask your vet. When my mother had one of stray females, that moved into the house, spayed, the vet told her to:

(A) keep her calm, no jumping
(B) use shredded paper in the box

Well, this was the psycho cat who climbed on everything and jumped down!!! and she refused to use the paper filled box, slipped out into the garage and used the "boys" box out there that had litter.

Interesting, I've never heard of that before.
I've had 3 cats spayed in the last 15 tears and used just the litter.
Does anyone know the reasoning behind using shredded paper?

Shredded paper isn't as likely to get in the incision, or stick to it.

plus if there's any dust in the litter it won't get in the incision. The vets used to only suggest shredded paper for boys....obviously....but more and more people I talk to say both sexes now.
