|The high white blood cells / WBC and GRA/neutrophils indicate you have an infection too but you don't appear to be on any antibiotics. That may be making your sickness worse and needs to be treated.
From the other results and your symptoms it does sound like pancreatitis/IBS which often go together. The inflamation from IBS can also turn into tumours in the intestines which could have caused a blockage. The prednisone is probably a good idea at least for a short time while you are so sick.
Pancreatitis can often be helped by eating a low fat diet. So not sure what exactly you are feeding as part of the home made/raw diet but if it includes a lot of fat that may be making things worse. You can still feed home made/raw but try to use leaner meat, less skin, less liver etc for a while.
If your vet is out of ideas I'd definitely agree that you should try another vet. I'd ask them to do an ultrasound or barium test to look for any blockage and show them your test results. If you have a cats only practice near you that would be best and they may need to recommend you to a specialist depending on what they find.
Hope you do OK
