6 week old kitten not eating and just sleeping

by Alicia

My 6 week old kitten has been acting weird the last 24 hours. My kitten is not eating or drinking, she's very skinny, and she's not playing. Is she dying?

Dear Alicia,

Such a young kitten not eating or drinking for 24 hours is very serious. Please run to a veterinarian immediately. If your kitten isn't dying, she could die and likely will die without immediate veterinary care.
