Hello, I'm Dr. Deb and will do my best to help you today.

I'm sorry for this concern for Mittens. I do have a few additional questions to ask about her first if you don't mind:

1. How long has she been acting this way?

2. Can you tell me the color of her gums?

3. Can you take her temperature?

4. Any other symptoms such as vomiting or diarrhea?

There may be a slight delay after I receive your answers since I have to type up a response to you. Thanks for your patience. Deb
