    I can't put my finger on anything but she hasn't eaten much since yesterday morning, I ran out of her normal food and had to get what the shop had, she has always been funny aout food flavours.Thought she would be ok as back to normal tonight but she took one look and waled away.

    She has been meowing more than normal, and quite cuddly (again unusual) She has also let the boys lick her (unheard of)

    She is now sat with the OH, but she just isnt right. My thermometer isn't working either. Will see how she is in the morning and get her to the vet if she is no better, but any ideas peeps?

    I wouldn't have expected her to refuse the normal food at this stage so you're right to be concerned. However, I would try sitting with her at the food bowl ( stroking often works wonders! ) and entice her to eat this way! This worked very well with one of mine who appeared reluctant at first, for some reason.

    Alternatively you could try warming the food slightly ( increasing the aroma ) and see if this works!

    Hope she's eating soon!

    She's not good, really quite worried, off to the vets at 2.40. She is normally really healthy bless her :( Kept her in, she has wee'd but not poo'd today. Fingers crossed it's something small.

    Good luck, hope the visit goes well and that she is fine.

    Thinking of you, will be watching out for the update.
