Answer from Kate
Hi
From your description it could be one of two things I think.

It may be that she is going through a period of grief which is not unusual for cats to do after another pet dies. This is completely normal and is process which will ease with time. Please see my page on this for more information here

The other possibility is that your cat is displaying signs of old age. this behavior can be associated with age related illness which unfortunately is not something much can be done about. Again I have more information about this here
