we keep some animals in overnight....we do surgery at around 11am and most go home between 5 and 6pm. If they haven't sat up in their cage and are way to groggy we leave them in overnight. No-one checks on them until 8am the next day (providing it was a routine surgery) We keep them in generally cause just normal household noise can be too much for them when they are so groggy and you can't trust all owners to be reponsible enough to look after their animal when they get it home (we have some that want to let their cat outdoors....how about no!). So I wouldn't worry too much about it...it's probably just a precaution they have to let the cats have some recovery time for those irresponsible owners!!! (Not saying you are of course....but it's hard for the vet to discriminate)
Too lazy to even think of a siggy
