My cat is 7 months old... the past 2 days he's been under the bed and won't eat.... he used to be the most playfull cat and now he doesnt want to be touched.... he meows and doesnt really try to get away but just skirms a little.... he just sits and stares in to the distance... i'm scared i don't know whats wrong with him

Answer from Kate
You need to take your kitten to see a vet as soon as possible.
Something is definitely wrong and there is no way anyone can try and diagnose his problem without examining him.

Kittens are more prone to illness as their immune system is not up to full stregth yet and they can go down his very fast if not treated promptly.

Make sure he gets some water to drink until he gets to see the vet as dehydration can kick in fast if not careful.

i hope you can get him to a vet as soon as possible. Lets hope it is just a 24 hour virus and something which can be treated easily by the vet.

best wishes Kate
