21 yr old kitty

Hello. We have had one of our kitty family members for 21 yrs. For a while she wouldn't eat anything and vomited all the time and lost weight. We sought vet care but no answer was found after bloodwork and xrays. After trying every type of food out there, we finally found one she would eat. Now for the last 4 months she has stopped losing weight but eats non-stop and is not gaining weight. We feed her through out the day but she has started eating lint, dirt, floss, q-tips, etc. She will even get things out of bathroom garbage can. She throws up and has diarrhea pretty much every day. Again we have sought vet care and still, nothing found.

I just wonder if because of her age maybe she has forgotten that she has eaten...

Any suggestions/help would be greatly appreciated.
