I can tell you from experience it is so important for them to be eating after the spay, and getting pain meds. If they aren’t eating, they are likely in pain and need to be given meds. Not eating for more than 24 hours can lead to stasis, which can be deadly. Both of my boys were eating on their own within 24 hours. Bombur stopped eating at one point because he was in pain and was developing an infection.

Change Lily’s litter box so there’s only fresh bedding, and monitor for poops. If she isn’t pooping, she needs to see a vet ASAP. If she’s refusing a treat, that is not a good sign. A bun that is doing well will not reject a treat, such as a banana. I really do think they need to be on those pain meds, as spays are painful procedures and they will not want to eat until they are not in pain any longer.
