It's kitten, she doesn't eat and drinks very little water.

Customer Question
It's kitten, she doesn't...

It's kitten, she doesn't eat and drinks very little water. She just sleeps all day.

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 the kitten. What is the kitten's name?

I call her Kitty.

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Kitty?

She's very thin and small for her age, about 4 to 6 months old
