Cat might be depressed?
I have no idea what's happened to my little guy in the last couple of days, but it does have me worried.
Just upfront, we did get a dog about 3 months ago, and baring the first few days we had her (the dog) Bowie and she have gotten along pretty well. They spar now and then but it's never anything real, far as I can tell, and always gets broken up pretty fast if one of them plays too rough (the dog).
Anyways, a few days ago, I noticed that Bowie was spending a lot more of his time inside the blinds laying in the Sun. It's been pretty nice, so I didn't think anything of it, since that's his favorite spot. Then one day, I noticed his tail was swishing kind of funny and I said something to my husband about it. He then said he'd noticed that Bowie seemed depressed lately.
I don't know how I missed it, but he's right. All he's been doing in the last few days is sleeping. He hasn't been grooming himself well either. He's eating and using his litter box properly, but he seems to have next to no energy.
I have no idea if or how the tail twitch/swishing adds in, but that's alarming me too. I observed him today doing it. It seemed like he was trying to swish it like normal, but it just wouldn't work, and began twitching rather sporadically instead.
Is there any advice on how to get him out of the funk? Or do you think there's something wrong with his tail and that's what's the matter?
