how long after eating should my cat poop?

My cat has been eating off and on all day(put a full can off food in her bowl at around nine thirty) and it's now, at around six p.m, completely empty. But she hasn't pooped since eating off and on all day. Is it possible she is constipated

    If it is defecating, the waste would be from what it ate a couple of days ago. Carnivores like snakes take a couple of days to digest their food. Cats are similar because they are carnivores. Carnivores have short intestines, and the food does not stay in the intestines for long.

    There is no exact set time for a cat to have bowel movements. But most cats will poop at least once every two days, sometimes more often. The key is to paying attention to patterns in her bowel movement. If she doesn't poop after eating today, but most days she does, then it'll be a cause for concern.
