Excess dry food can cause renal failure and feline leukemia is also a possibility especially if it has been in contact with feral cats or their fluids, etc.
If it is a long haired cat that grooms itself extensively it could have lost appetite due to a stuck hairball.
Some cats do lose appetite when the scent of mating is in the air and can lose weight. If your cat won't eat for several days and loses considerable weight and nothing will tempt it to eat you should take it to the vet. If it doesn't drink then take it urgently.

The following is advice from the ASPCA
Cat food is higher in protein and fat, which may make it very palatable to dogs, but if you continue to feed your dog only cat food, over time you'll begin to see nutritional imbalances. It's also possible to see gastrointestinal issues, such as vomiting and diarrhea, in dogs who continually eat cat food. Pet Nutrition Service
Dog can eatcat food once in a while without having any side effects. However, cat food ishigher in protein and fat than dog food, so if dogs eat it on a regular basisit can cause them nutritional imbalances.
Any food not specifically designed for cats can affect the digestive system, causing vomiting, diarrhea, or loss of appetite. Here are some foods of particular concern:
Alcohol can cause severe liver and brain damage. As little as a tablespoon can lead to problems for your cat.
Chocolate contains theobromine. It is in all forms of chocolate, and most concentrated in dark chocolate and unsweetened cooking chocolate. Chocolate ingestion can cause heart problems, muscle tremors, or seizures. Chocolate also contains caffeine.
Coffee, Tea, Energy Drinks. These contain caffeine that can cause your cat to become restless, have rapid breathing, heart palpitations and muscle tremors.
Dairy Products. Some cats are lactose intolerant and if they eat dairy products it can cause vomiting and diarrhea.
Fat Trimmings, Raw Meat, Raw Eggs, Raw Fish. Can cause vomiting, diarrhoea or a painful condition called pancreatitis (from excessive fat) and there is a risk of Salmonella or E. coli associated with these foods.
Grapes and Raisins. Cats are less likely to eat these so cases are rare however, dogs can suffer acute kidney failure from eating grapes or raisins, so it is best to not to risk your cat's health and not let him eat these foods.
Onions and Garlic. All members of the onion family can cause problems if eaten in sufficient quantity. A little bit of onion or garlic in some sauce is not likely to cause any problems. However, eating a clove of garlic or a green onion may cause digestive upset. Eating some type of onion on a regular basis could cause anemia.
Xylitol. This is a sweetener used in a lot of sugar-free foods, especially chewing gum. There are no records of cats becoming ill from this product, but in dogs it can cause a severe drop in blood sugar (which can cause seizures/convulsions or even *****) followed by liver failure. Therefore it is better to be safe and not let your cat eat foods that contain this ingredient.
