Customer Question

He was fine till a couple of hours ago when he started meowing and shuffling because he's having difficulty finding a position to lay down. He seems to be walking almost fine but it hurts to extend one of his front paws all the way . He's 11 (We think) and an indoor cat
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Could be a lot of things that cause lethargy. The Veterinarian will know how to help He 's. Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about He 's?
Customer: No way he escaped out of the apartment cause he just sleeps all day and then begs for food when we come back from work
