From the symptoms you describe, it does sound like Mr. Boo is sick. It may be that he has a fever. The primary symptoms indicating a pet has a fever is lethargy and poor appetite. Most of the time in a pet this is due to some sort of infection. In this case it may be that he is having a gastrointestinal tract infection or inflammation causing his symptoms. I think it would warrant taking him in since most of the time antibiotics are needed to clear up the problem and to get his energy and appetite restored.
