Ball Python is acting weird, won't eat

My ball python is acting incredibly strange.

I forgot to feed them last week so she should be hungry. I fed them (I also have a milk snake) three days ago. The Milksnake jumped on his food, literally, the ball python kept sleeping.

She hadn't eaten a few hours later so I took the rat, her usual meal, out and put it in a bucket with some food.

Long story short:

It's been three days since I fed them and she hasn't eaten. It's been almost three weeks since she ate.

Her color is great. She constricts appropriately when picked up. Her eyes aren't glazed. She's not about to shed. Her substrate was cleaned two weeks ago. She's very active at night.

The only thing I can think of is that her cage is too cold but when I had it at the right temperature, she slithered as far as she could from the heat sources and stayed there for days. I turned off the light, left the pad on and she became active again. I haven't taken her out since feeding day but prior to that she wasn't acting strange or different when we interacted with her.

I actually don't know what to do.
