Plus she sleeps most of the day every day. She hasnt been to sleep today at all. she has just been running in and out from under the bed as if she is afraid.she lets me rub her soshe isnt acting afraid of me

Hi! I'm CalCatDoc and I can help with your question.

The main thing that comes to mind with this sort of behavior is that she is having trouble completing a bowel movement and has feces stuck in her anus or hung up in the fur of her backside.

So can you get ahold of her (gently) and look under her tail and let me know what you see?

It looks like CalCatDoc had to opt out. How is Yable doing today? Can you give me an updated on his current status?
