Friend, if you are seeing mucus in the nostril this could be a sign of a respiratory infection which can explain why he is not eating and lethargic. Unfortunately we are very limited as to what you can do at home. I would strongly recommend having him checked by ER veterinarian, if this is related to an infection he will be started on antibiotics. I would not wait if this was my cat.

My goal is to provide you with excellent service - I hope I've provided the information you were seeking, if you feel you have received anything less, please reply back as I am happy to address follow-up questions. Kindly rate me when you are done.
