3 months is a fairly long time for a corn not to eat, but two rats will take some time to digest.

It might just be she has been digesting the rats, so wasn't hungry and now is due to shed so off food.

You mention change of colour, have her eyes gone blue etc. If so I would double check temps, and make sure she has hides at warm and cool ends so she is not stressed and leave her alone to get on with the shedding and then try feeding after that.
