Does sound to me like a heart issue. Cats with congestive heart failure can have difficulty breathing and be extremely weak, and will often lose their appetite. They're also prone to getting something called a saddle thrombosis, which is when a blood clot lodges in the arteries to the hind legs. Very painful, and their hind legs will feel cold and stiff.

Pumpkin. You're in a better place now.
