Cat Not Eating/Lethargic
My 16 year old cat, Fuzzy, has been very lethargic and won't eat. I noticed the night before last that he was coughing up a hairball, but it was just yellow stomach-bile looking stuff.
He has been sleeping all day/night, only getting up to use the litterbox and then go back to sleeping. He is drinking water, but he won't eat the canned food. He has been getting skinny in his old age, and I'm worried if he doesn't eat soon he may be dying.
He hates the car/vet, so if he is just dying of old age, I'd hate to make his last moments be somewhere he hates and is scared of instead of his home.
Could he just have a stomach virus or something he will get over? Please help...I'm not sure what to do.
Peace and Love,
