my kitten is acting weird he usually is very playful and wont stop. now he just sleeps all day and seems to be slower and doesn't wanna play? he is 9 weeks old. im worried i checked his nose and its still cold and damp so i dont think he is running a fever. im just worried because hes just not the same as he was.

Answer by Kate
Kittens just like us humans can pick up viruses from time to time which slows us down. However if this behavior goes on for more than three days then i would definitely suggest taking him to the vets. kittens can be very susceptible to things during their first weeks of life.

also make sure he does not have fleas. Fleas can be very dangerous for kittens as it can cause severe anemia. Please see this page for more on this

Also make sure your kitten gets plenty of fresh water (not cows milk as dehydration is also something to watch out for in kittens and cats.

best wishes Kate
