in the last 1-2 days, she has become really lethargic and stopped drinking water... she will take a sip here and there, but the water dispenser is practically full. I noticed her food ran out maybe 4 days ago, and I've been trying to feed her scraps of food and I dumped the rest of what was left of her food for her.
