I would call the vet's office that is doing the surgery and ask them. That is the best way to make sure that your cat is prepared in the right way for the surgery.

Purring that all goes well for your kitty and that her eye feels better.

Check with your vet's office but normally they need to be fasted for at least 12 hours (for anesthegia). When my cats have morning surgery, they can not eat after 9 PM. Hope everything goes well.

Call and ask but typically you should pull the food by midnight and pull the water in the AM.

Hunter has it right! Food at midnight the night before, water when you get up. You will more than probably get to feed her when she comes home tomorrow (if she's staying over night they'll probably feed her there) and so she won't starve!
