Customer Question
I came home from...

I came home from work to find my cat laying in her litter box very out of it. Whenever I pet her her head and face kind of twitch. When I stand her up she just lays back down.

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'm sorry to hear that. Could be a lot of things that cause lethargy. The Expert will know how to help your cat. What is the cat's name and age?

Kitty the Grey and she is 3 years old

Veterinarian's Assistant: What is the kitten's name?

Kitty the Grey

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about your kitten?

I'm not sure
