Hello, I'm Dr. Gregg and I am so sorry to hear about your loss. It must be a terrible shock to you. What was your cats name? The fact she was lethargic and not eating prior to her passing could be, unfortunately, due to many different things. The green liquid from her mouth could be due to bile backing up from the intestines if she was nauseous or had an intestinal blockage. It could also come from some toxic substance such as antifreeze (which is sweet tasting to cats and is quite toxic), or even mouse/rat poisons she could have gotten into in her roaming the area. The only way to know for sure would be to have her undergo a post mortum exam by a pathologist( called a Necropsy in Veterinary Medicine). That would require taking her to a Diagnostic Center at the closest Veterinary College. Unfortunately an expensive option. A local Veterinarian could do a basic Necropsy and perhaps give you an answer, but the Pathologists at the Diagnostic Center would have the best chance to get you an answer. Does that answer your question or can I help you further?
