I guess your vet has checked her teeth right?

So something similar happened with my cat last week. Turned out he ate plastic and we had to have emergency surgery. Did the vet xray her? That’s really important to rule out that she hasn’t tried to eat something she should not have.

As PP said, did the vet xray your cat? Also, could she be constipated? My kitty won’t touch food when she is constipated as it is too uncomfortable for her to eat. If she is constipated, we usually give her a little milk or cream to get things moving, before taking her to the vet.

ktb19 :  Certified Vet Tech here.  Has she been pooping and peeing?  If not, there could be a blockage of some kind, like other people suggested.   You can request an xray.

On the other hand, cats can sometimes just stop liking their food for “no reason.”  It could be something as simple as that.  Try offering her something different and see if she eats it to rule that out.

Cat puke piles can be just as big as dog piles.  Trust me on that.

Sounds like things are getting better for you! You could also give her single protein treats that have no artificial flavours. They are quite healthy, and cats love them.
