Q. My cat is very dehydrated and she has started randomly twitching. She doesn't seem to sleep. She was missing for 7 weeks and just came home! Help!

A. I would suggest having her seen by a veterinarian immediately. She may need fluids and an examination to rule out injuries. It is also important to have her dewormed and checked for parasites. Your vet can recommend the best course of action.
