I'm so sorry to hear about that scary experience with your kitty and I'm glad he's healing up!

I imagine that for the first few days Sprocket will probably be pretty tired and sore so keeping him quiet for 10 days shouldn't be a huge problem and I wouldn't worry about training him or engaging in anything that would involve a lot of moving for at least a week.

Can he sit up? Oliver my cat knows how to shake for food. It's good that Sprock is food motivated! I would just take his paw and lift it and then treat, and eventually he realized if I put my hand out I wanted him to shake my hand. Being mischievous though, he tries to offer a paw at dinner now even when I don't want to shake his paw and throw him some turkey!

You can also teach mind games with food to keep him busy like folding an origami paper box and putting treats in there to see if he can unfold it and get the treats out. Oscar, my other cat, is a picky eater but he loves fish and will happily unfold a box for a fishy snack.
