Didn't your vet give you instructions? My kittens went to the vet at 8.20 am and we were told to stop feeding them at 7 pm the day before.

Yes, definitely get instructions from your Vet for when to stop all food and water.

Typically you withold food and water 8 to 12 hours before the procedure. It's best to call the vet and ask, though, as every vet may have their own pre-surgery / procedure instructions for their clients.
