Customer Question

hobbes usually eats quite a bit but lot less for few days and may be drinking more water though hard to tell b/c we have 2 kittens and several water bowls. he wants bathroom sink on to drink running water. not uncharacteristic but seems to drink more at one sitting than usual. he can be tempted to eat some wet food & tuna sometimes but hasn't eaten his normal dry food in a few days. when we try to hand-feed him w/ a spoon, sometimes, he licks his lips but doesn't eat. sometimes he does eat but definitely not the good eater he is normally. he is not as active as usual but still moves around and even runs at times but doesn't seem like himself. when we rub his abdomen, he dosen't seem to be tender at any spots, nor do there appear to be hard masses. he has a bad habit of chewing things and we've caught him ripping up toilet paper a couple times in last few days. also poss eaten one or more moths.

Hi there!
My name is ***** ***** I would be happy to help you with your question about your kitty.
Poor Hobbes! It sounds like he's been feeling under the weather. Has he been vomiting at all? Is he able to pass stools/urinate?
