lethargic cat

My indoor/outdoor cat has been very lethargic the past 2 days. She wants to stay outside, isn't eating or drinking her water, and is slow moving. I am very concerned. What should I do or what might be wrong with her?

She needs to be evaluated by a vet immediately.  

A cat who refuses to eat is in danger of contracting hepatic lipidosis (fatty liver disease) which can be deadly.  And a cat who will not drink will become dehydrated, which can lead to other problems, such as kidney insufficiency and infection, and more.
