My Cat Won't Eat

My usually lively 5-year-old cat lost his appetite recently, and became very lethargic. I took him to the vet (who I have long believed has been over vaccinating him; he had a rabies and distemper shot at the end of December), and she did blood work. Everything was perfectly normal, except for a very slightly lowered white blood cell count, which she was not alarmed about. She gave him a shot to stimulate his appetite yesterday, and he is eating more. But he's still listless and not himself. FYI: he periodically has seizures, which began when he was two. I would be grateful for any insight. FYI: He has not been vomiting, doesn't have diarrhea and the vet said his heart, lungs and other vitals are fine. However, he has lost a pound in a month; he is normally thin to begin with.

Try tuna! I had 3 cats and sometimes they just like to be left alone. He will come around. Just keep an eye on him.

She recommended making him a chicken breast. I did. I also feed him premium natural food, such as Weruva, Natural Balance and Halo Spot's Stew. He is eating more. But he's still very lethargic.

The food I am feeding him is fine. He has been eating. The fact that he's so lethargic is what has me worried.
