Customer Question

She is 12 years old and she seems to be out of sorts lately. She has been licking herself but biting herself alot and that seems to be worrying me. She also has been hiding which is not like her
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Strange behavior is often perplexing. I'm sure the Veterinarian can help you. Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about the cat?
Customer: Just that she goes outside alot and does not have fleas
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Veterinarian about your situation and then connect you two.

The "call" thing is an automatic request by the site. I'm not set up to handle it either. If you want, I can continue by these means?
