Is Maisy sick?
Maisy has shown no interest in her food for the last day and a half (although she'll quickly gulp down the cat food if she can get to it). She did have a small spit-up in her crate one morning before I noticed she went off her food. Now this morning I've noticed that her breath is bad. Do you think she may be sick or getting sick? ...is bad breath an indicator?

Well, as it turns out, Maisy ate her food this morning after all. Also, she isn't acting sickly in any way. Maybe she just had a stomach upset for a bit. I'll see later if her bad breath has gone away.

I don't really have any advice, but I hope she feels better soon!

How old is Maisy? If she is loosing teeth, this will definitely cause bad breath.

Get out! Yes, she is losing teeth. She is now 4 months old and I just noticed yesterday that she is missing two teeth ..maybe more.

Btw, why would losing teeth cause bad breath?
Thanks for the information!!

Sore, bloody gums, I would suppose. I had noticed that my guys have off smelling breath when they get their adult teeth. It can't be bad teeth, they haven't had them long enough to get plaque, decay or tartar.
