I am sorry your girl is not feeling well. Anytime a cat stops eating she is either sick or in pain.

Has she gotten into plants, antifreeze or any toxic substance?

Why is she losing eyesight?

If she is not diabetic rub a drop of syrup or honey into her gums to raise her blood sugar in case she is hypoglycemic.

Take a rectal temp -- normal is 100 - 102.5 for a cat.

Since she is drinking drain the water from a can of tuna into a dish so she can lap it up for hydration. If she does,offer some tuna.

Get chicken baby food with no onion or garlic. Warm it to bring out the aroma.

Please let me know how she is doing. Just reply here or if you prefer, we can speak on the phone.
