Lethargy can be a symptom of many things, and it is very concerning that he isn't eating. Cats can get liver disease if they don't eat for a period of time.Is he urinating?One of the main concerns in a car that goes outdoors would be a toxin, such as antifreeze.
They can also pick up upper respiratory viruses. Has he had any sneezing? Does he feel warm?
