Thanks so much for your very helpful reply.

She may be in heat or have a fever.

Rub a drop of honey or syrup into her gums to raise her blood sugar in case she is hypoglycemic.

Drain the water from a can of tuna into a bowl and see if she will lap it up. If she does offer some tuna.

Get a jar of chicken baby food with no onion powder. Warm it and see if she will eat that..most cats will.

If she has a fever apply a cold compress to her tummy and pads.

Please let me know how she is doing .
