Gabby is undoubtably feeling a bit stressed with all the recent changes in the household, she will also pick up on your feelings - sorry you have gone through so much in such a short time. Perhaps try giving her some Rescue Remedy, it is a natural remedy that can help to calm and relax her.
Try soaking her food a little with some warm water or chicken broth, or maybe add some real meat or canned food or even yogurt to her bowl as well. It may entice her to eat. It won't hurt to 'spoil' her for a while, to encourage her to eat. A vet check is a good idea, she may be having problems with her teeth. Try to get her out and walking, exercise can stimulate the appetite as well as being a stress reliever in itself. A change in food may help, but if you do decide to do that, transition her slowly.
