Customer: She sleeps constantly, I have tone wake her to try to feed or give her water

I am sorry Tyra is not feeling well.

She may be dehydrated from diarrhea.

Drain the water from a can of tuna into a dish and let her lap it up.

Get a jar of baby food chicken with no onion or garlic. Add a tsp of rice cereal or boiled white rice to the jar to cure the diarrhea.

She can also have tuna, salmon or canned cat food.

Please let me know if she eats and how she is doing.
