My cat Raven 10 months, is acting a lil odd, seems to be not eating as much, after my older cat of 14 years Max, died suddleny 2 nights ago,

is this normal? both cats where close and played and cuddled and just were best friends..
is thier any thing i can do to help Raven?

Yes this is normal. Many people think that cats don't grive but they certainly do. After all a constant companion has dissappeared. they may not know what death is but they do know when someone isn't around any more.

Your cat just needs time to adjust and perhaps some extra cuddles and time spent with you. Try to distract him with games etc. This is the best way to help your cat at this time.
