My cat is four years old and i love him to bits. Yesterday

Customer Question

My cat is four years old and i love him to bits. Yesterday and this morning he has not eaten his treats or his normal packet food but is drinking water ok and is rushing around like a mad thing as he is very active and is always running up and down. He is like his usual self and he does not go out, he is very much a housecat and very much mine. He is not acting strangely or being sick or anything so I am wondering if it just because he is too hot or maybe off his food and fancies something different for a change.

Please help
