My year and a half female cat has not eaten or drank

Customer Question

My year and a half female cat has not eaten or drank anything for a week. She just lays down and doesn't move and I just don't know what do for her. Any ideas?
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. The Veterinarian will know if the cat will be able to digest that. What is the cat's name and age?
Customer: Rebel, 19 months
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Rebel?
Customer: She was spaded in April.

when was the last time she ate or drank anything?

what have you tried so far to entice her to eat?

any current meds or illness?

is there any chance she could have gotten into anything?
