Good Morning and welcome. I am Dr. Loretta, a licensed veterinarian and I am happy to answer your question.

There are many conditions that will cause a cat to not eat including infection, metabolic disease, or cancer. Since Whisper is ferril, the only thing you can try, if possible, is to give her a dose of Nutrical, available at the pet store, every 4-6 hrs. This is a nutritional supplement that stimulates appetites and will give her the nutrients she needs to get past this. If this does not help, your only option is to try to catch Whisper so your vet ca examine her to know for sure what is causing this and how best to treat this.

Does that make sense to you?
