Customer Question

Hello my name is ***** ***** have a 1 1/2 yrs old boy cat named Simba. I recently brought him a companion (girl kitten) its been about 1 week and today i noticed hes being very lethargic. No fever, i saw him eat & drink some water but hes moving very slow. The kitten is fine. She smothers him wants to play every second & climb ontop of him. Im wondering if maybe he is sick or if hes annoyed & tired from all the play hes been forced to do with her. Since she really doesnt give him a choice. But its just wierd ive never seen him act like this. Very lazy and slow. Both have their shots. Im confused on what it is if hes sick or depressed or in pain or just simply tired and annoyed.

Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you with your wee one today.
Has he had any coughing, sneezing, or discharges from his eyes or nose?
Since you noted he was moving slow, if you feel him, does he have any sore spots or areas of discomfort (ie his back or when you press on his belly)?
Has he been passing urine and feces as normal?
