Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. Could be a lot of things that cause lethargy. The Expert will know how to help the cat. What is the cat's name and age?

Hi. My name is Dr. ***** *****. I have over 15 years experience as an emergency veterinarian. I recommend that you put her in a room by herself with a litter box, water and some canned food. You want to make sure that she is urinating, eating and having bowel movements. A kitten that is stepped on can have serious internal injuries, like a ruptured diaphragm, ruptured bladder, broken ribs and injury to the lungs. Does she appear to be breathing normally? I know you said finances are limited, but if she is breathing heavy, does not eat for over 24 hours or does not urinate for over 24 hours, then it is urgent that she be evaluated. Many states have veterinarians at the animal shelters that offer discounted services. Please ask any follow up questions.
