Kitten not as active as before
We have a lively 8 week old kitten, recently treated at the vet with antibiotics for a bug. This cleared up and we bought him home and has been fine for the last 5 days, playing and getting into mischeif. But today he has been lying on the couch all day, happy but not running around as usual. He is still eating and seems happy but not hes usual self. Could you give me some advice please. Thankyou.
Answer from Kate
I wouldn't worry just yet. Cats and even kittens can have days where by they simply are not as active. I have two young cats who even as kittens would have days where they just wanted to sleep. usually this only lasted for a day or two.
if he still seems unlike himself after a couple of days or if other symptoms appear then perhaps a double check with the vet in case the bug has returned and he needs a second dose of antibiotics.
Remember as a kitten his immune system is still developing.
best wishes Kate
