If he's not eating on his own you'll need to syringe feed him. The longer he goes without eating, the less he'll feel like eating. You can crush up his normal food and mix it with some water so it will go through the syringe easily, or you can get wet cat food and blend it up until it goes though the syringe easily. Alternatively, you may be able to get Carnivore Care from your vet. It's designed for sick animals and is supposed to be easy to syringe feed.
