It is difficult to know why cats sometimes do this, so the best course of action would be to take your cat down to your local veterinary surgery as soon as possible.

It may have picked up a slight infection from a fight with another cat, or the cause could be something more serious. Get your pet checked out by a vet.

Why is my pet cat always sleeping, but not eating?
  • Hopefully, it is nothing serious - and could be as simple as your cat not liking the food you have brought. Cats are known for being somewhat fussy in their eating habits. If this is the case, then try a different brand of cat food, or give your pet some tuna - a treat a cat will never refuse!
  • If your cat hasn't eaten in a while, this could be potentially dangerous as, when an animal does not consume food, it simply uses its fat reserves for energy instead.
  • However, before these fat reserves can be used, they need to be passed through the liver - which cannot cope without adequate protein - but which is normally harvested from the food your cat eats. This could cause liver problems and rapid weight loss in your pet.
I cannot stress how important it is that you take your cat to the local vet.

There could be many reasons but it's a sign your kitty isn't feeling well and you need to see your vet. Not eating for even as much as 24 hours can send our cats into organ failure so it's important to find out what the problem is quickly if that happens. I hope your baby is feeling better soon.
