Have a 20yr old calico. How long can a cat go without eating or drinking?

No bm for five days ...Will see vet only if in pain. No howling, just lethargic. She is going---but how many days longer? No water, just dips her nose in it and gets startled....Help!!

Your cat needs to see the vet immediately. She hasn't taken any food or had a bowel movement in 5 days - take her to the vet. Cats don't always tell us when they are in pain - they are very good at hiding it - she could be purring and in pain. Your cat is critically ill - see the vet.
