Hello, I'm Dr. Deb and will do my best to help you today.

I'm sorry for this concern for your cat. I do have a few additional questions to ask about her first if you don't mind:

1. Can you tell me the color of her gums?

2. Can you take her temperature?

3. Is she also lethargic?

4. Any other symptoms such as weight loss or vomiting/diarrhea, etc?

There may be a slight delay after I receive your answers since I have to type up a response to you. Thanks for your patience. Deb
