Q. When I woke up this morning my kittens face was swollen on the right side and her tounge is hanging out. She still gets up and moves but won't eat.

A. Sounds like she got bitten by a bug or spider, or is having an allergic reaction to something. If the swelling doesn't resolve in 2 or 3 hours, take her in to a vet for an exam. There are anti-inflammatory drugs that can make the swelling go down and make her more comfortable.
If she starts showing signs of a generalized reaction - difficulty breathing, vomiting, diarrhea - take her right in.
