Cat Veterinarian: Dr. Gabby, Cat Veterinarian replied 4 months ago

Have you had her to a vet to make sure there is not an underlying medical cause? A vet could determine if there was anything going on that could cause the lethargy and reduced appetite. Cats often do not show any symptoms until they are very ill. So I recommend you take her to the vet and have blood work done to check for underlying infection or metabolic disease. Then if all that is normal she could take an anti-depressant for a few months until she is no longer mourning the loss of her friend. Since lethargy and lack of appetite are very vague signs can have many causes I would start with the vet exam, blood work, and then behavior medication if needed for short term relief. How does that sound?
