How Long Can Cats Survive Without Food?

In the last blog post I talked about how long cats can survive without water and in this blog post I'd like to talk about a similar topic. 

For those of you who haven't read the previous blog post (and are as curious as a cat!) you can check it out here

Let's talk about how long cats can survive without food! 

Cats can go up to two weeks without eating. 

But, there's a catch! 

This figure of two weeks is just an estimate and the actual amount of time depends upon a lot of contributing factors---after all, your cat is a unique being!

The actual number of days your cat can go without foods depends on: 

  1. Your cat's age
  2. Breed
  3. Previous illnesses
  4. Activity level
  5. Size 

If your cat has not been eating much, keep in mind that slow starvation can have severely damage your kitty's health and cause kidney problems and other infections!

So, keep your kitty fed and make sure to get someone to look after your cat when you're out of town!
