He is not eating and that has me concerned I have read cats cannot go very long without food we have tried several types of wet food tuna fish and red mak and red meat ra and red meat raw he has no interest in anything. I hear mucus rumbling in his right nostril is there anything I can give him that I would have in my house to make him more comfortable and to start eating

1) When you look at the skin in his ears and the whites of his eyes, as well as his gums, do they appear yellow or pink?

2) How many days since he drank normally?

3) Has Buddy had any dental work performed?

4) When was his last exam?
