    It could be any number of things. Yes, stress could be involved. It could be she is sick and the younger one attacked because she knew this. I would at least provide a second feeder and waterer if you don't have them already, in a different place, so hopefully she gets a chance to eat and drink.

    It might help if you answer the questions in the sticky at the top of the emergencies forum.
