I have a 12 year old in door male cat. That all of a sudden stop eating. I tried soft cat food, he ate that for a few days but, not now. He is moving slowly and not jumping up on the bed to sleep with me anymore. He keeps tipping the water dish over?
You should have a vet check him. He could be not eating do to a mouth/dental issue (serious, in an older cat. Infection from a bad tooth can cause the loss of teeth as well as bone). you should also have your cat checked for some of the older cat diseases. Hyperthyroidism, diabetes, etc... I'm sorry I can't be more specific, but there' a number of things that can cause the behavior you described.
