I'm afraid I did not receive your reply if you had answered the questions in my last post. I've reposted them below:

if she does not pee by morning taking her to vet...but vet i closed today...should I take her to emergency vet?
Expert:  PitRottMommy replied 11 months ago.

Because she is producing less urine despite normal intake of fluids, it would be wise to schedule a visit for her as she already has known renal compromise. Cats with renal compromise are prone to a condition known as oliguria. This is a reduction in the amount of urine output in an attempt to conserve electrolytes. In can indicate severe renal compromise. Although her values were checked just 3 months ago, I would go ahead and have them checked again to be sure that her renal compromise has not worsened.

I would go ahead and schedule to have her examined by the ER vet if you have one available in your area, yes.
