My cat is getting neutered this Friday. I'll be home with him all weekend to make sure that he's OK. Can I leave him home on Monday by himself or will he need me to be with him for a longer period of time after his surgery?

When cats are stressed or in pain they usually hide or want to be left alone. You can make a comfy spot for him - a crate, box or bed, even just a favorite blanket. Cats recover very quickly and unless you see no improvement after a couple of days (in which case he needs to see the vet asap) you can leave him by himself.
