Aloha! You're speaking with Dr. Michael Salkin
The most likely etiology for her inappetance and lethargy is incomplete remission from her infection and/or continued dehydration and/or electrolyte imbalance due to the fluid loss of enteritis. I'll administer a bolus of a fluid and electrolyte replacer such as lactated ringers to these cats on an outpatient basis and expect them to perk up nicely within hours.

Can you tell me, please, how coronavirus was diagnosed as the etiology of Isabella's enteritis?
