Is she eating and using the litter box ok? Could someone have accidentally stepped on her or tripped over her? Could she have gotten in to something that gave her a tummy ache?
It sounds like she is not be feeling well. A vet visit may be in order.
Please keep us posted on her, and welcome both of you to the board.

Hi Ginag -
Did something happen? Anything different at all? New furniture? Visitors? Vet visit? Food change? Litter Change?
Did anything at all change??
Please add any details you can think of.... If nothing has changed, please take your cat to the vet - she might be sick, and a vet visit is in order... Changes in behavior like that are not normal and usually signal an illness.

So glad to hear your kitten is feeling better. The best thing I can tell you to do is get a product called Scatttttt. I think that is how it is spelled. It is an aerosol can that you set on the counter. When your cat jumps up, it automatically sprays a stream of air. The sound of this scares the cat and they avoid the area. I used it once and my Beeba never tried to get on the cupboard again. He also likes to chew on artificial plants (don't ask me why). Used it once and he stays away from them too. There are all sorts of deterrants out there. From putting tin foil on the cupboard to two sided tape. I think the ultimate is the spray. It is harmless, but it works. It isn't cheap, I think I paid about 30.00 for it. But it is well worth it. No cats on the cupboard! PS I find it covers about a 5-8 foot area. Adequate for a countertop.
