Hello. Thanks for writing in. My name is***** and I would be happy to help you. I am not set up to do phone calls but would be happy to answer any questions you do have online. There is a good chance she has a gastrointestinal ulceration or a severe pancreatitis. If there were onions, then those can be poisonous to cats and cause severe anemia. If this has been going on for 2-3 days, and she is weak, I would get her to your vet's office immediately. She needs blood work, anti-nausea medications, put on intravenous fluids to flush her system and re-hydrate and any other supportive care that is evident from blood work. Please let me know if you have any other questions or concerns. Hope this helps.
