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

Expert:  Dr. Deb replied 10 months ago.

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

1. Has she always slept this much or is this something new?

2. How does she behave when she's not sleeping? Is she interactive with you or does she keep to herself?

3. Any other changes such as change in thirst or urination? Any change in appetite? Any weight loss?

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
