I do not feed or water the night before. With feral cats you really can't control this, I just don't feed from the moment I live trap them. That is really all you do before, and after is about the same. I let them out as soon as they can stand and walk well, they usually hide for a bit. I have never used a cone, they lick a little and then act pretty much normal. Just try to watch for any active bleeding or pus. Make sure they are peeing/pooping/drinking/eating. All the luck!

stop feeding/watering the late evening before. The reason is, if they have something in their stomachs it can be aspirated into their lungs because it is quite common to vomit after anesthesia.
