    What are it's symptoms? Is it walking at all? Underweight? Unusual poop? What's it been eating? Vaccinations?

    @WilebaumIt will try to walk for a few seconds and then stumble and then lay down, I believe it is a bit underweight and it has had no vaccinations and poop has been hard but lady poop was very liquidy, it also curls its feet when trying to stand

    California!
    Try giving it wet food for now. That should TEMPORARILY put off it's death.
