Hi
yes it could be quite easily be because he is missing the other cat. I wrote a article about cats grieving whether this is because a cat dies or goes missing the remaining cat will experience a sense of loss and this is natural and normal but should only be a temporary situation.

Please see my article here

If the situation goes on for too long or if the cat stops eating or shows others signs of distress then my advice would be to take them to the vets in case their is something physically wrong.

However give him some time and hopefully he will return to normal.

best wishes Kate
