She is eating a bit. She does appear to drink a lot though. Is that normal?
If she were huddled under the bed shaking in fear and not eating, drinking, or interacting with you much I would say she is stressed from the new environment. BUT you say she is only eating a bit but drinking "a lot" â€” that to me is very different. Seems like there may be a health problem? Healthy cats usually eat and drink in proportion to eachother unless they are kittens and like to play in the water.
Why don't you weigh her, and then start measuring the amounts of food you give her (1/4 cup, 1/2 cup, whatever) so you can see exactly how much she eats? She may actually be eating enough, but just less than your other animals. I have a kitty that hardly eats anything but she stays the same weight.. . then again I have a kitty that eats all day and is too skinny from hyperthyroid.
