Customer Question
My cats have been...

My cats have been acting a bit funny for a few days. their appetite has been down. they are usually laying around by windows etc etc. their energy level has decreased has me a bit concerned. they hardly touch their food but when I lay out some wet food they target it

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'm sorry to hear that. Could be a lot of things that cause lethargy. The Expert will know how to help your cat. Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about your cat?

Those are the only things I see. I feed them like twice a day and now I only feed them once cuz their food bowl is half way empty for a refill
