Elder female cat 11+ years. Over last week has been failing

Customer Question

Elder female cat 11+ years.
Over last week has been failing in health.
Will not eat. Big loss in weight.
Does not use cat box anymore. Does not defecate last 4 days. Only a little urine on carpet.
Seems to not see well, or smell. Unsteady gate. Trouble rising at all from lay down position.
Does not cry out at all.
Blood discharge from nose or mouth (I think nose).
She has gone under bed, not in curl up sleep position as is normal but extended position.
I fear she has gone to die.
I have had no money to take her to a vet. Money to take her in AM has arrived.
