    We aren't vets here and can't diagnose or suggest treatment for your kitty, but it sounds like she has an upper respiratory infection or "kitty cold". Find a different vet if you need to, but your kitty needs to be re-examined and possibly given antibiotics. This won't go away on its own and she needs veterinary care. A cat needs to eat and drink to survive. A cat won't eat what it can't smell. Good luck.

    I had the same symtoms. I thought I had a 'kitty cold', had a huge fur ball or might have been something I should have not swallowed. When I was at the Vet, I had no fever. Had blood work done and all organs working properly. They gave me a shot for nausea and sent me home with liquid tagamet. My Mom gives it to me 2 times a day. Seems to have done the trick. I apparently had an upset stomach and 'heartburn' possibly due to addition of a new kitten into the house. Good luck and I hope your cats problem has been resolved.
