Shhe eats everything,especially her litter,so I put hay on the paper litter. the wheat I was using made her overweight. So I amusing plain Kitty litter that is supposed to be safe for her. She is drin king a lot of water now. This is unusual for her.

She was out of her cage for exercise tonite. After I brought her in, I noticed her problem. I frequently have to clean up her cecotrophs since she is overweight.

Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you today. I do apologize that your question was not answered before. Different experts come online at various times; I just came online, read about your situation, and wanted to help.
Again I do apologize that my colleagues could not aid you sooner. If you would still like assistance, can you tell me:
What does her stool look like?
How long has she had these signs?
Are her eyes looking sunken? Does her skin snap back down when you lift it or does it tent and do so slowly?
Are her gums moist or sticky? Pink or pale/white?
