Ask a Vet and Get Your Veterinary Questions Answered.
Good Morning and welcome. I am Dr. Loretta, a licensed veterinarian and I am happy to answer your question.
I am so sorry to hear about Shadow's condition. Kittens are very sensitive and are frightened easily....I am afraid that something frightened her so bad that she is not able to feel normal until she can get over this.
The best thing to do now is to purchase Feliway at the pet store and Rescue Remedy. These are natural anti anxiety medications that will help Shadow past this. You may never know what has caused this but using these products as well as talking to her in a soft voice, continuing to coax her to eat and being very patient will get her over this.
If this does not help, your vet will have stronger anti anxiety medications to get Shadow past this.
This LINK will have other tips to help Shadow past this.
Does that make sense to you?
Please let me know if you have ANY other questions. My goal is to give you 100% satisfaction and if you are not yet satisfied, please Reply so I can clarify for you

Thank you. I had researched Feliway and thought I would try that. One other thing I did not mention previously, I have not noticed her defecating in the last couple of days, but she has urinated. Could it be possible that maybe something is bothering her intestinal tract and causing her discomfort and maybe it just hit her suddenly and she is associating it with the floor because that's where she was when it occurred?
Thank you so much, Rhonda for your kind rating and generous bonus. It is very much appreciated! Do not hesitate to contact me with any other concerns that you may have about Shadow's odd condition. If you have other questions, please Reply.
Have a great day!!
