|Is she an older cat? Did the rescue group tell you anything about where she came from? Many times a cat coming from a senior citizen's home environment is very upset. If so, it is possible that her purrson passed away or went to a nursing home. Suddenly your kitty was taken from the loving, kind (quiet) home she was used to and sent to a rescue kennel, surrounded by strange cats, people and loud noises. I've seen many cases of this at the shelter I volunteer at. The cats look like they're in shock. And if she lost her purrson (and maybe another cat buddy) she is grieving.
I understand why you're keeping her in the bathroom, but would it be possible to let her explore another room (if she wants to)? Even for a few minutes under your supervision? Maybe relaxing on a chair, bed or couch and being able to look out a window would help.
It sounds like this kitty needs someone to help her get over her grief and with your love and kindness I think you are the purrfect answer to her prayers.
