1 Year old Himalayan cat is much less active.

   I'm taking him to the vet tomorrow morning, but I'm afraid the vet might not be able to help as he's still eating(Less) and drinking, but he seems just depressed and not as active. He snorts, but I've been told that in flat faced Himmys it's normal. Is he too hot maybe? I run the a.c. but he has been hiding under my bed where its a little warmer. Hes up to date on all vaccinations of coarse and has been altered. He doesnt have a temp, and seems ok other than his lack of appitite and playfulness. Any ideas?

cats will have high body temperature always how much ever we try to cool them. they like to sleep under our bed covers to feel our body temperature.
try to take him out when u go for walk. or else consult a doctor he may give medicines for deworming.

It's good that you are taking him this morning and I hope you do get a diagnosis and a good treatment for him.  Cats are funny creatures when they don't feel good.  They do tend to hide and not eat or drink much if anything.  He may have an infection of some sort and the vet can easily give him some antibiotics there and for you to take home to give him for a week or so.  Has he been pottying okay?  Male cats can develop urinary blockage due to crystals and that really makes them sick.  Females get this too but not as often as males from what I have been told.  Or he could have a respiratory ailment developing.  Anyway, please let us know how he is doing.

Well I took him in and the vet said he had a little respitory infection....He gave me a bottle of cefa-drops and they are already taking affect, as he is playing and running around again.....and has been out all day and is eating more. Smiley I'm still curious as to what I can do to prevent a future respitory infection? At any rate I'm so glad my little hair-ball is feeling better. Thanks for the help!

I'm so happy to hear that your little guy is doing so much better.  Antibiotics can surely do wonders.  I don't know what you can do to prevent future infections.  I guess it's like humans with colds and flu.  Just keep him happy, warm. well fed and watered and, of course, loved.  Everything you have always done.  And if or when he starts acting like he did, get him to the vet again and he should be fine.  Sounds like you keep him indoors which is a good thing so he won't be exposed to other kitties that might be sick.  Hopefully he won't go through this again, at least not anytime soon.  Again, hooray for feeling good again!!   Smiley
