He has yes.
The vet said she’d be fine in a week, so we did it a little bit after that.
But are those signs normal? I did a load of reading there and it seems like the first meeting went okay

That’s a little concerning – I was advised to limit my girl’s movement for the first 5 days then after her check up he said I could increase her space a little but still keep her somewhat confined (she’s normally free roam) for a further 5 days. We didn’t start bonding her to my little boy until about 6 weeks after (he was neutered a week and and half after my girl)

 

You’ve got to remember that her insides need to recover too, it’s big surgery. Her hormones need to settle too. Bonding can also be very stressful and you don’t want to stress her out as she’s healing. Plus your boy mounting your girl could hurt her or damage her if he is particularly erm firm about it. 

Mounting is a totally normal sign when bonding but given your current situation, it could be harmful to your little girl.
