    What Kind is she?
    Was it a long trip home?
    How long has she been acting this way?
    and have you talked to the people you got her from?

    Well if she was fine when you picked her up..I would think it is just being in a new place....Keep and eye on her, make sure she is drinking, eating and pooping or...Check for lice or mites....Give her extra TLC (maybe some treats).



    Let us know if anything changes.


    Best Wishes,
