hi. my older cat stopped eating when his brother passed away. we ended up feeding him via syringe for a week to get him eating. I think they can miss us or a friend and just stop eating. After a vet checkup (blood and urine, exam), I'd try and have the folks around him fuss over him, offer him treats from their hand, and just give him extra attention. Forcefeeding from a syringe may be necessary. Maybe a companion kitty.

take care,

Lisa S.
