I'm so sorry to hear she passed.

Did you ever get a feeding history for her? In other words, was she eating fine before you got her? If so, and if there were no problems immediately after purchase which you relayed to the breeder, I can understand their hesitation. There are just so many random care items that can go wrong as more and more time passes, ranging from a heat spike to a bad feeder to an escape (not saying any of these happened with you).

If you are really seeking a reason, the only other item I could suggest is a necropsy -- if the cost is not too high. This might tell you whether it was an illness or a physical defect. However, sometimes they come back with no good answers.

Again, so sorry for your loss.
