In the last few days, however, he seems to have lost
. It's not completely gone, and once he tries to meow a couple times he can get a light, scratchy meow out. He's also dry heaving a little. I rubbed around on his throat and it didn't cause him to cough, and I didn't feel anything abnormal.
He is otherwise in good spirits - he's eating, seems happy (for a cat that's being isolated in a bedroom), he's energetic enough to play once in a while, attentive, hydrated, and so on.
