Thanks so much for your very helpful reply.

The kitten could not make Coco sick in such a short time BUT she could be stressed.

Feel all over her body for any pain response. Look in her mouth for a stuck item or any abnormalities.

When a cat does not eat she can harm her liver.

Drain the water from a can of tuna into a dish and let her lap it up for hydration. If she does offer the tuna.

An overweight cat is subject to diabetes. This is caused by eating dry food.

Please read articles written y a feline vet:

Get cans of wet food for Coco.She can also have human baby food with no onion or garlic. The important thing is to get her eating right away.

Please let me know how she is doing .
