I'm sorry that your question wasn't answered in a timely manner. I'm puzzled by the description of "white sticks odorless substance from where she's peeing". I'm envisioning the mucoid grit that a cat's bladder will form when the bladder is inflamed due to infection or idiopathic (unknown cause) cystitis. If I'm correct, such a cystitis can nauseate and result in vomiting and epiphora (excessive tearing). Two days+ of anorexia should prompt having her vet attend to her and as part of the vet's diagnostic work-up, a complete urinalysis should be performed on urine obtained by cystocentesis - percutaneous aspiration of your cat's bladder - the most sterile manner in which to obtain urine.Please respond with additional information and further questions or concerns if you wish.
