Unhappy Need Help !!!

My 13 year old male cat has been sleeping alot this past week and staring at the couch cushion for a few minutes before laying down.....well last night he would not open his eyes or respond to me even after I laid him down on me - His nose & ears were very warm, nose was runny and he sounded as if he was having problems breathing. When he did open his eyes his left eye wouldn't open fully and seemed cloudy. He is just very out of it. Not jumping up and down very well either.
He has never been sick in any way and had his shots this past Sept. 2002.
Could he have a cold and should I bring him to the vet?

He ate some soft food this morning and drank a little water but nothing like he normally does.

This is not something that I would even begin to give suggestions other than to highly recommend you take him to your vet.

There may be a number of problems going on including dehydration, diabetes, kidney disease or hyperthyroidism. Your cat really needs to go have a check up and will likely need to have a comprehensive physical and blood evaluation to start.

Good luck and hope that he has many years of quality life left.
