Hello and thanks for trusting me to help you and your pet today. I am a licensed veterinarian with over 25 years experience and would be happy work with you but need a bit more information in order to better assist you if you don't mind.

There are no magic tricks to get a cat that is refusing food to eat but the key is to find out why she stopped eating.

Can you tell me for how long this has been going on?

Is she eating anything at all or refusing everything?

Is she still drinking?

Is she vomiting? Diarrhea?

Is there any nasal discharge?

Is she an indoor only cat or is she allowed outdoors as well?

Thanks and I will respond further after you reply. There may be a slight delay while I formulate and type a thorough response or I may be offline, but if so, I will respond as soon as I am able.
