When a cat is not eating, it's a sign that something is not right, and the additional symptoms you've described—diarrhea, vomiting, ear issues, and itching—suggest that your Oriental cat is experiencing a health issue that needs attention. The gray and greasy stool could indicate a problem with digestion or absorption of nutrients, or it could be related to a condition affecting the pancreas, liver, or gallbladder.

Firstly, ensure your cat has access to fresh water at all times, as dehydration can quickly become a concern, especially with diarrhea and vomiting. You can encourage drinking by providing multiple water bowls around your home or using a pet water fountain.
