Hello Jackie, I'm Dr. Deb and I'll do my best to help you today.

I'm sorry for this concern for Mags but I do have a few questions to ask about her, if you don't mind:

1. How long has she been acting this way?
2. Does she actually take her head and rub it on surfaces or does she take her back feet and scratch her head/face?
3. Does she act in other odd ways such as staring off into space or getting confused?

There may be a slight delay after I receive your answers since I have to type up a response to you. Thanks for your patience. Deb
