Question Corin has hardly eaten for 3 days

My cat, Corin, has been on an all wet canned diet since october (same brand, rotate about 6 flavors) and has been doing well, however, for no apparent reason she has stopped eating. Today is day 3 with no wet food. She *may* have eaten about a teaspoon of wet food over the course of the past 3 days though, hard to tell. She has been easting treats when I give them to her though. She hasn't been vomiting, hasn't lost any weight, and seems in good spirits. She has had a little bit of a loose stool, and went outside the litter box once, a little bit.
Why did she stop eating, when will she start again, is this normal?

I would take her to the vet to rule out anything medical going on. A change in behaviour like that warrants a visit.

I 100% agree and imo this is NOT normal.
Some cats get upset stomachs more frequently than others. When this happens they may shun their food; this happens to my cat every once in a while as well. But 3 days is too long. In addition, there are several reasons besides upset stomach that may cause a cat to shun food.

My rule is 24 hours of not eating equals a problem, so given that this is 3 days, it's a problem. Please take your cat to the vet.
Good luck!
