Customer Question

My cat doesn't appear to be his cheerful self. He's a strayed cat and he's adopted us for the last 2 years. He comes , eats his meal and off he goes again we have a flap so he's free to come in and out.
To day he's been in all day, he only went out briefly and back in . Though he's eating, just now I felt both ears very hot. I wonder if it's a sign of temperature. If so what can we do for her.
