Hello again and thanks for waiting.

I have worked out an answer for you below ...

What you should do just to be on the safe side is have a vet check your cat over sooner rather than later.

1. I say this because : While the symptoms you describe would not allow me or any other vet to pin this down to any one particular disease via the internet I would say from the fact that he is not eating and is lethargic and hot to the touch that it is possible that your cat is running a temperature and so may be in the grip of some kind of infection.

2. I normally like to suggest home remedies if I can do this safely but in your case I think it is not worth the risk as it could well be that prescription drugs such as antibiotics would be what is needed if he is indeed running a temperature, but you should be aware that a range of other diagnosis are also possible.

In the meantime until you can get him to a vet all you can do is to keep him comfortable and reassured and make sure he is taking fluids regularly.

I am sorry I cannot safely give you any more specific advice via the internet.

I hope I have covered your question fully enough but if you would like further clarification or to talk things over a bit more then I will be on-line for the next hour or so and I will be more than pleased to continue working with you.

Regards,

Dr Scott.
