    All cat species are hunters and their systems are adapted to an irregular feeding regime. Lions will stuff themselves into a stupor (once they have let the hyenas kill their prey and then growl a bit so they get first dibs) and spend the next day lazing about while they digest it.  A single day without food is not going to hurt providing she is generally in good health. Many owners will even reduce or eliminate food once a week or less often to make sure their habits are more "natural" to stop them getting overweight.  

    To paraphrase a TV commercial here, 9 out of 10 cats prefer to be bloody awkward. They are also very good at training their pets - you. If she is hungry, she'll eat so don't worry. Dry food will keep just fine until she relents, wet dries out and looks horrid so it ends up being a battle of wills between you replacing it and her eating it.

    We will work, we will play, we will laugh, we will live. We will not waste one moment, nor sacrifice one bit of our freedom, because of fear.
