It certainly could. Cats have an insane ability to hold the necessity to urinate and defecate and can wait days on end to go if stressed. If she's been in an area that is unfamiliar to her, she's unlikely to go. I would take the opportunity to place her into a calm area like a bedroom or bathroom and give her a few hours alone without any disturbances. The calmer she is the more likely she will be able to relax and use the bathroom. It's not safe for a cat of any age to wait that long to stool so she needs to go as soon as possible. If needed, add some canned pumpkin pureed (pure, not pie filler) to her food in the amount of 1 tsp per meal to help her go.
