This was advice that Gaye (our moderator) gave you for the last pregnant cat you fostered who wasn't eating...it's worth trying:
Have you tried chicken or turkey meat baby food? Sometimes you can get an anorexic cat to eat by smearing a little baby food on your fingers and letting them lick it off. If they won't take it on their own, try opening her mouth and smearing the baby food just between the 'cheek' and gum area, don't force it into her mouth.
Just make sure that the baby food doesn't have any onion in it.
Yes I would tend to agree,although if you don't have babyfood you could try mixing (I don't know if you can get this)but whiskas supermeat,half supermeat half warm water from the kettle and mash it up.
If you can't get that then meat that hasn't got chunks in or solid.
Personally I would not be giving her dry food as if she's constipated can only make it worse.
Did you get her today?she could just be adjusting to her surroundings,If she's really far gone then she probably wouldn't be eating anyway if she's really close.
I have known cats go afew days without eating before they give birth.
Since you probably don't know when she is due,I would just monitor her.
Any sign of lethergy,high or low temperature, paleness, discharge or panting,then I'd be off to the vets with her.
