Hello. I am sorry to hear that Shelby is not having a good day. I would be happy to help I just have a few questions.

What is she on prescription food for?

Is today the first day she has been behaving in this manner and not eating her normal amount?

What color are her gums?

Is she on any medications?

Is she drinking and using her litter box?

Are the other cats new to the household?
