He's not himself.
He's walking, using the litter tray, and eating.
But he's not going outside or moving much from his bed or a chair.
He can jump on and off chairs, but chooses not to very much.

I'm missing him following me around and chattering away.

Without wanting to unduly worry you, but having gone through what I have the past few weeks i'd say get him to the vets for a check up. Better safe than sorry sad

Oh littlemiss I just read your update about your cat. I'm so sorry.

we have an appointment, and he's seeing the vet in about an hour. I'm just being a worried cat mum as I've never had to take a cat for something not obvious.

Vets will take owners' concerns pretty seriously. Cats cover up so much that, sometimes, a change in behaviour is the only clue to something being up.

Let us know how things go?

I am keeping fingers crossed it's ok. I have also just learnt through my own bitter experience that it's better to check out any slight change. I hope it goes ok for you both.

The vet thinks there is nothing wrong with him.

He's had an anti inflammatory injection as he found the tiniest mark on a back leg that might be a fight injury.

He came home, had an enormous poo, and has been pottering around looking almost like himself again.

He's back in early next week for vaccinations anyway, so the vet will see him again then.

There you go. Don't you feel better for having him checked? smile

Am sure he feels better after such a poo!
These cats like to keep us on our toes.

How old is he? smile

He's 1.
And I still feel he's off.
He's not been in the garden or marauding at the neighbours'. Perhaps he doesn't like the weather, I certainly don't.
