I am sorry your boy is not himself.He may be hurt, in pain, sick or scared.

Take him out of the corner and check him over. Look in his mouth for a stuck item or any abnormalities. Feel all over his body for any pain response.

Make sure he is able to pee and poop.

Rub a drop of pancake syrup or honey into his gums in case he is hypoglycemic.

Offer him tuna, canned food, or milk. Warm the food to bring out the aroma.

Please let me know if he eats or drinks anything. And if you discover anything out of the ordinary.

If he refuses all food, has any obvious injury or cannot urinate, he should be seen.
